There is a growing recognition that women have been underserved, under-represented or marginalized in the political process of countries. This paper is set out to examine the correlation between women participation in the political process and good governance of the state. It is the assumption of the paper that in the context of good governance therefore, equality of participation for all, irrespective of gender is the defining factor. Against this background, the paper attempts to evaluate the level of participation of women in Nigeria in the governing process so as to understand and explain how their participation has helped to improve, diminish or alter the texture and prospects of good governance in Nigeria overtime. It is the finding of the paper that the extent of involvement of women in Nigeria in the governance of the country is a direct function of the country’s political belief and value systems.

This paper examines globalization not only as a strategy of economic development, but also as an ideology that expresses a particular form of power relations on a world scale. Lastly, the paper focuses on Nigeria’s attempt at self-reliance in a globalizing world.

This paper is set out to examine the trend of globalization as a driving force that provides an enhanced opportunity and capacity to alter the socio-economic and cultural fortunes of world communities including national economic space. The essence is to capture the realities of the influence of the global trend on the concrete patterns of socio-economic consumption in Nigeria. One of the objectives of the paper is to order an understanding of how Nigeria is coping with the global trend without necessarily losing her capacity to set global standard. It has been found out in this paper that Nigeria is still struggling to devise theoretical instrument and practical strategies with which to curb the overbearing effects of globalization.

The cold war periods tend to polarize, and indeed, polarized the world into two distinct ideological camps: Western capitalist ideological camp (bloc) and the Eastern communist ideological camp (bloc). The rest of the world, especially the Third world, most of which gain political independence in the 1960s chose as it were, to tread softly by choosing to remain not openly and strongly militarily aligned to either of the two ideological blocs. Since the 21st century, the relevance of the non-alignment as being orchestrated by countries of the world seems to have diminished, diminishing or completely evaporated as a consequence of the shrinking of the world into a global village, defined in the generic term, “globalization”. This global trend appears to demean the idea of Non-Aligned Movement and thus making the Non-Aligned idea to loose its original passion. It is against this backdrop that this paper sets out to revisit the idea and notion of Non-Alignment in the face of the growing global current that has appeared to have gulped the entire world into a common world or village irresistibly; as there is the increasing breakdown of barriers to the worldwide diffusion of socio-economic ideas, technology, doctrine, products, services and practices. This paper informs that the original passion of Non-Aligned Movement has been vitiated; and to that extent no longer relevant in the 21st century. The paper recommends fashioning out of new patterns of global alliance capable of checkmating the excesses and possibility of the world drifting into one-camp banditry and overbearing hegemony of the U.S.A and its subaltern NATO allies.

The goals of an organization can only be achieved when there is efficient administrative machinery. One of the factors that make administration efficient is effective decision-making. Based on this premise, this paper examines the concept of decision-making and its relationship with administrative efficiency as applied to Nigeria. The paper also considers the various forms and models of decision-making. Additionally, the authors opine that organizational decisions based on management by objectives is very effective since it helps to ensure collectivity of wisdom in decision making process. Finally the paper suggests certain areas which organization decisions should focus on.

This paper sets out to examine the politics of oil exploration and exploitation as a harbinger to patterns of reactions of the host oil communities in the Niger Delta region on the one hand. On the other hand the paper seeks to identify and explain the element of security contradiction as applied in handling the crisis arising from the relationship between the host oil communities and the oil multinationals operating in the region. The paper relies largely on secondary sources of data and employs the qualitative content analysis method. Analysis in this paper is based on a review of existing literature. A careful analysis of segments of argumentations in the literature is however, linked with personal experience of the emerging trends in the area of study so as to capture the realities on ground and to order a balanced argument. It is found out in this study that it is the nature of politics of oil exploration and exploitation that determines and defines the character and dynamics of the reactions of the host oil communities and thus, the production of unending crisis in Niger Delta region. The paper recommends a sharp review of the existing Nigerian laws relating to land use as well as to make provisions in the constitution to recognize the host oil communities as an important third-partner in the rail in the oil-business in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria..
