Fọlárànmí, S.  2021.  {Lasekan: The Western Region Years}. Akinola Lasekan: Cartooninig, Art and Nationalism at the Dawn of a New Nigeria. (Jegede, Dele, Adesanya, Aderonke, Eds.).:171–181., Ibadan, Nigeria: Bookcraft Abstract

Akinọlá Lasekan (1916-1972) is regarded as one of the pioneers of Nigerian modernism, and an art educator. His artistic career have been discussed alongside other artists such as Aina Onabolu, Akeredolu, Ben Enwowu and others. Particularly his practice as Nigeria's first political cartoonist with the West African Pilot—a newspaper established by Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe and a principal weapon in the fight for African emancipation. His artistic contributions as a teacher at University of Nigeria (UNN) from 1961-1966, and University of Ife (Unife) from 1967-1972 has however received little mention. Four paintings in the collection of the Obafemi Awólọ́wọ̀ University Ile-Ife created during this period has also received little or no mention, which leaves a gap in art historical discourse and the relevance of these paintings to the history of the university and the old western region of Nigeria. This chapter therefore propose an analysis of these four paintings and the historical trajectory they present as visual elements. It will to focus on Akinọlás Lasekans sojourn as a university teacher at the University of Ife, and his role as a foundation member of the Ife Art School.

Traditional medicine has been playing a crucial role in developing countries as it provides primary health care needs for a large majority of the population. This article reviews the current research on the phytochemicals, nutritive value, ethnobotanical uses, and pharmacological importance of Momordica charantia. The phytochemical analysis of this plant revealed that the plant is rich in nutrients and phytochemicals which are of great benefit. Also, the plant is among the plants popularly used in traditional medicine and has been proved to be effective. The biological activities of the plants had been carried out by many authors and their results have been documented. In addition, among the biological activities of these plant are antidiabetic, antiulcer, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, hypolipidemic, antibacterial, antimicrobial, antimalaria, antiviral, anticancer and antifertility. Moreover, some bioactive constituents such as alkaloids, tannins, flavonoids, saponins, glycosides, sterols, mucilages, and oleanolic acids are significantly present in the plant.

Perspectives on the Legislature and the Prospects of Accountability in Nigeria and South Africa. (Fagbadebo, Omololu, Ruffin, Fayth, Eds.).:217–232., Cham: Springer International Publishing Abstract

As an institution of governance, the parliament is the soul of democratic societies. The parliament typifies the presence of the people in the running of governmental activity. It monitors the actions of public officials towards ensuring adherence to initiatives and measures that advance the people's well-being. Relations between parliamentarians and citizens are, thus, critical on two fronts. Parliament – citizen relations are important in ensuring that elected parliamentarians are responsive to the desires of their constituents; and enable the people to hold their elected representatives accountable. In bridging communication gaps between the people and lawmakers, the Internet, social media and mobile phones, as digital technologies, have prospects in enabling the desired level of citizen engagement critical to democratic practice. This chapter explores, in comparative terms, the use of digital technologies by the national parliaments in Africa's two largest economies, Nigeria and South Africa. It examines the extent to which digital technologies are used in facilitating parliament – citizen relations in the two countries and how this connects with citizens' demands of accountability on national parliaments, and links between elected representatives and their constituents. The paper draws on data obtained through measurement of the online resources, especially websites and social media pages, of the parliaments. The chapter contributes to frameworks on how digital technologies can enhance parliament – citizen relations and good governance in sub-Saharan Africa.
