Odeyemi, TI, Obiyan SA.  2018.  Digital policing technologies and democratic policing: Will the internet, social media and mobile phone enhance police accountability and police–citizen relations in Nigeria? International Journal of Police Science & Management. 20:97-108., Number 2 AbstractWebsite

The police are expected to perform functions critical to relations between the government and citizens in democratic societies. However, in Nigeria, the reality is that the police organisation suffers limitations that undermine effective and democratic policing. Although the Nigeria Police Force has a long and chequered history, its services are dogged by challenges including adversarial police–citizen relations and mutual suspicion and police misconduct. To address these problems and enhance policing, the Nigeria Police Force has deployed digital technologies through a Complaint Response Unit [later renamed the Public Complaint Rapid Response Unit (PCRRU)]. The PCRRU allows the public to connect with the police through dedicated phone numbers for calls and SMS, and a round-the-clock presence on Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp, Blackberry Messenger and a mobile application. Although this initiative often draws attention and commendation, it also raises doubts about sustenance and utility value. Drawing on David Easton’s input–output nexus as a theoretical underpinning on the one hand, and data sourced through expert opinion interviews and web measurement on the other hand, this article investigates how these digital policing technologies, through the PCRRU, enhance efforts at mutually rewarding police–citizen relations and police accountability, as requisites of democratic policing, in Nigeria. The findings expand discussion on the dimensions of Nigeria’s police–citizen relations and the potentials of technology in promoting positive outcomes. The findings also suggest means through which police managers can optimise technology in ways that aid strategic efforts at improving public security.

Traditional Yoruba artistic heritage has a rich repertoire of motifs, forms, and colour with deep symbolic meanings often used in communicating thoughts and ideas. In modern Nigerian art, a recourse to cultural iconography has always influenced artistic creation. This paper therefore examines the rhythmic organization of forms using the Yoruba cultural iconography which characterizes the works of Kunle Filani, whose works draws significantly on the philosophy of Yoruba tradition. Twelve paintings have been purposefully selected for evaluation and analysis using the simple random method and the formal analysis technique. Findings revealed that Filani uses motifs, signs and symbols creatively as visual similes and metaphors to communicate thoughts and ideas. Filani also uses his art to make positive statements which have generated curious public reactions. This paper concludes that cultural content and context can induce socio-cultural development and serve as veritable tool to preserve and advance the cultural heritage of the Yoruba people as evident in Filani's work.

Fọlárànmí, SA.  2018.  {The Challenges and the Development of Style in Nigerian Art}. European Journal of Business and Management. 10:90–97., Number 9 AbstractWebsite

The development of artistic styles in the Nigerian art scene has developed almost along the same line as in other places worldwide, while the challenges facing the artist are almost the same everywhere. This may be so because these challenges are fundamental. The quest for identity, change, statement of purpose, sense of belonging, problem solving, and in some cases revolt, outright breaking of established art laws and most importantly personal experience are some of the influences and basis on which the creating or the development of styles in Nigeria rests upon. Some the styles and expression are new, while others are further developments, synthesis, or combinations from existing styles and techniques available in the different field of fine and applied arts. We are familiar with styles, which are trademarks of established and successful artists in our society; styles, which are a development of different art schools in Nigeria and in recent years the ones that are evolving among talented and creative young Nigerian artists. The later is what this paper seeks to examine. What are the challenges, Inspiration, and the motivation and most importantly influences behind these new innovations?

Babatunde, S, Perera S.  2017.  Cross-sectional comparison of public-private partnerships in transport infrastructure development in Nigeria, 2017/10/09. Engineering, Construction and Architectural Management. 24:00-00. Abstract

PurposeAlthough scientific research community has shown considerable interest in identifying critical success factors (CSFs) for public-private partnership (PPP) projects, yet effort at assessing and compare CSFs within similar PPP infrastructure projects received scant attention. The purpose of this study is to identify, assess, and compare the CSFs in PPP transport infrastructure projects.
The study adopted literature review and three PPP case studies including structured interviews and review of documentary reports in each case study. The outcome of literature review provided a total list of 26 identified success factors, which was used to design a case study protocol using Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) technique. FMEA was conducted on each 26 identified success factor to assess their criticality in the three PPP case studies.
The results of FMEA revealed a total of 10 CSFs in the concession of the road; four CSFs in the concession of the airport; and eight CSFs in the concession of the seaport. Also, the cross-case analysis showed the three prevalent CSFs, this includes government involvement by providing guarantees, political support, and project economic viability.
Practical implications
The study findings including lessons learnt in each case study would positively influence policy development towards PPP transport infrastructure projects and the manner in which partners (i.e. public and private sector) go about the development of PPP transport projects.
This research would help PPP stakeholders to focus their attention and priorities in managing the identified CSFs in achieving long-term success in PPP transport infrastructure projects implementation.
