Current Issue

Vol 7 No 3 (2022): KIU Journal of Humanities, Vol. 7 No. 3, September 2022

This issue of KIU Journal of Humanities touches on Development Administration, Social Philosophy as well as Communication and Literary Studies.

The first part of the Journal addresses issues in Development Administration such as Fiscal Federalism, Road Infrastructural Development, Economic Development, Tourism, Social Corporate Responsibility and so on. One of the papers in this section reveals that fiscal federalism has not led to the improvement of road infrastructure in Nigeria and with improved fiscal federalism, Nigeria will experience infrastructural development. It is therefore, recommended that Nigeria should adapt fiscal federalism practice in the United States in which other federating units would not need to depend on the federal level for their infrastructure development. All Federating units should begin to develop innovative ways of improving internally generated revenue so as to improve provision of infrastructure within their domain.

Section two explores issues in Communication and Literary Studies such as Markrting Communication Strategies, Cohesive Devices in Religious Discourse, among others. Based on the result of the findings of its empiral Studies, one of the papers in this section recommends that private universities should mix their marketing tools strategically so they can effectively communicate the unique values they offer through their services.

Papers in the last section are on Social Philosophy. It is postulated in one of the papers that the present inordinate desperation of the youths to get-rich-quick is influenced by unemployment, online and Nollywood videos, peer influence, poor parenting and change in societal value system, economic deprivation and inequality in wealth distribution characterized by marginalization, limited opportunities and social exclusion of these youths perpetrating the criminal acts. The paper recommends that society should exhibit zero tolerance to the get-rich-quick syndrome of these youths. The federal and States governments should create job opportunities for the youths. The youths should also be encouraged to engage in entrepreneurial skills acquisition ventures that will provide them with means of earning income and wealth generation.
