Pakistan Journal of Social Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: The study evaluates, the contributions of the selected sectors of the Nigerian economy to its development, so as to serve as reference point to the Nigerian government and the relevant stakeholders charged with the responsibilities of achieving the millennium goals of the Nigerian Economic Development, tagged: (vision 2020). The issues succinctly highlighted in this study relates to the general background to the study, objective of the study, relevant literature review and trends in the budgetary allocations to the selected sectors. This study made use of vector Auto-regression estimation model as tool for analyzing the contribution of the selected sectors to the Nigerian Economic Development using Gross Domestic Product (GDP) as proxy. Following this analytical tool, this study concluded that even though the selected sectors contributed to the development of the Nigerian economy, but it is important to improve and monitor the allocations to these sectors in order to meet up with the international standard.
X-Ray Diffraction Studies on the Thermal Stability of Calcium-Strontium Hydroxyapatite Solid Solutions Syntheszed in the Presence of Diethylamine
I Abdullahi, SA Thomas
Nigerian Journal of Basic and Applied Sciences , 2009,
Abstract: Calcium-Strontium hydroxyapatite (HAP) solid solutions in the presence and absence of diethylamine (DEA) were prepared by the method of co-precipitation from basic media. The samples were heated at 773.15K in a furnace. Characterization of the samples by x-ray powder diffractometry, atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS) and UV- visible spectrometry revealed that calcium –strontium HAP solid solutions at an elevated temperature of 773.15K were unstable and underwent transformation into other phosphates possibly beta tricalcium phosphate(β-TCP). Solid solutions synthesized in the presence of DEA show remarkable stability and enhanced crystallinity at that temperature. The stability was probably due to the added organic molecule which acted as a template. KEYWORDS: Apatites, solid solutions, templates.

Bayero Journal of Pure and Applied Sciences , 2010,
Abstract: Bacteriological investigations of Diarrhoeal diseases were carried out among 300 children who were between the ages of 0 – 24 months using stool samples from five different hospitals in the metropolitan Kano. The organisms were isolated and identified using cultural, serological biochemical test. Sensitivity testing of the isolates to some antimicrobial agents was carried out. Out of those number only a total of 122(40.7%) of children were found to have Diarrhoea associated with bacteria in which 34(27.9%) and 88(72.1%) were from breast-fed and bottle-fed children respectively. The Bacteria isolated were Escherichia coli which were the most predominant, followed by Salmonella species and then Shigella species. As at the time of the study, there was significance difference between breast-fed and bottle-fed in the incidence at P> 0.05. Among the antimicrobials used cotrimoxazole was found to be more effective than the others. Also, most of the children tested were found to have a common illness of diarrhoea followed by dysentery, abdominal pain and fever/vomiting.

I.O Abdullahi, S Abdulkareem
Bayero Journal of Pure and Applied Sciences , 2010,
Abstract: Some ready to eat leafy vegetables on sale at Sabon-gari market, Zaria were analysed for their bacterial flora and counts. Lettuce had aerobic plate count range of 2.0 x 107 to 5.7 x 108 cfu/g, cabbage had a count range of 1.3 x 107 – 5.6 x 108 cfu/g and cucumber had a range of count of 3.0 x 105 to 1.9 x 106. The coliform index showed lettuce to have a count of 8.8 x 106 – 1.3 x 109, cabbage was 2.1 x 106 to 8.0 x 107 cfu/g and cucumber was 8.0 x 105 to 1.9 x 106. Bacillus species and Staphylococcus aureus were the predominant bacteria isolated from these vegetables. The counts were obviously above the recommended standards for ready to eat vegetables especially coliforms which should be less than 10 coliform bacteria per gram( FAO, 1979). There is the need for hygiene officials to take interest on what is offered to consumers and specify acceptable handling practices.

International Journal of Engineering Sciences & Research Technology , 2013,
Abstract: EPANET is a computer program that performs extended period simulation of hydraulic and water qualitybehavior within pressurized pipe networks. A network consists of pipes, nodes (pipe junctions), pumps, valves and storage tanks or reservoirs. EPANET tracks the flow of water in each pipe, the pressure at each node, the height of water in each tank, and the concentration of a chemical species throughout the network, EPANET is designed to be a research tool for improving our understanding of the movement and fate of drinking water constituents within distribution systems. It can be used for many different kinds of applications in distribution systems analysis. In this paper it was used to analyze the existing water distribution network in order to investigate its adequacy in performance of its function, the results obtained from this study revealed a lot of deficiencies in its design implementation and usage.

Adamu G. Umar, Philip B. Adebayo, Abdullahi A., Ibok I. Okon, Umenze Ikenna
World Journal of Cardiovascular Diseases (WJCD) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/wjcd.2015.56019
Abstract: Hypertrophic osteoathropathy is characterized by triad of digital clubbing, periostosis, and pachyderma. We report the case of a young male Nigerian with asymptomatic idiopathic digital clubbing with neither skin changes nor periosteal reaction. He presented to our hospital with swelling of fingers and toes of about six years’ duration. All his fingers and toes were clubbed with drumstick appearance, no swelling or tenderness of the wrists, elbows, ankles or knees and no skin changes. The laboratory findings were normal. Primary hypertrophic osteoathropathy without pachydermia was entertained when neither skin changes nor periostosis were found. Although primary hypertrophic osteoathropathy without skin involvement is rare, effort should be made to search for secondary causes.

International Journal of Engineering Sciences & Research Technology , 2013,
Abstract: The sustainability of water is critical to local, regional, national and global security. It is impossible to think of a resource more essential in the health of human communities or their economy than water. Water runs like a river through our lives, touching everything from our vigor and the fitness of natural ecosystem around us to farmer’s fields and the production of goods we consume (Flint 2003). Goals can be established to begin the in-depth integrated assessment of water shed resources that lead to sustainability. These goals should be formulated to address a number of fundamentals principles that underlay the conservation, protection, remediation, and longevity of water resources such goals might include; (a) Provide safe, adequate water supplies at time and of the quality needed for domestic municipal, industrial, agricultural and hydropower uses. (b) Allocate effectively and fairly fresh water among diverse uses and users. During the process of these research work a questionnaire was provided to the consumers to gather information on water demand, nature of supply, use of metering system or non metering system ,illegal connection and other related information concerning the water supply in Kaduna. Similarly data for Kaduna metropolis population was collected from National population commission. The population of the study area was forecasted using the information collected from population commission. The water bill for different categories of consumers was collected from water board. All the information was gathered and a model equation was used to forecast the water consumption of Unguwan kanawa. In the result of analyses the water demand equation obtained by the regression analyses is: Qas(Y) = 0.00061 + 520 Pop(X) where Qas(Y) = Actual supply and Pop(X)=population.

Journal of Animal and Veterinary Advances , 2012,
Abstract: The objective of the study is to determine the proportion of foetuses destroyed due to the slaughter of pregnant sheep and goats relative to the total number of small ruminants in urban abattoir. Two studies were conducted. In study one, 150 structured questionnaires were administered to butchers while study two, data were collected at the main Kano abattoir for 2 months. Result of the survey showed butchers vary in age (< 20 to above 51 years). Youth were the main source of labour. All the butchers were males and mostly married (76.67%), they had secondary education and were mostly engaged in evisceration activities (50%). The structure of sheep and goats slaughtered at Kano abattoir revealed significantly higher (p< 0.05) number of goats relative to sheep. Also, significantly higher (p< 0.05) number of in-lamb sheep were slaughtered compared to in-kid goats. The study showed 34.3% sheep and 26.1% of in kid goats was slaughtered daily in urban abattoir. One out of every 3 ewe or 4 does slaughtered was pregnant. The data estimated 0.26 million lambs and 0.21 million kids were being destroyed annually due to the slaughter of pregnant animals. Reasons for the slaughter of pregnant animals advanced by butchers were either due to poor economic status or ignorance of the physiological status of the animals. It is recommended therefore, that antemortem inspection be conducted to identify pregnant animals for restriction or advice against their slaughter. Legislation prohibiting the slaughter of pregnant animals should be enforced. Government agency, Cooperative or NGO could organize the purchase of potentially healthy pregnant animals for rearing.

International Journal of Engineering Sciences & Research Technology , 2013,
Abstract: A Flocculation system for water treatment facilities comprises of a flocculation tank having a plurality of baffle which divide the interior of the flocculation tank into a plurality of components. The baffle are arranged to provide inter compartmental openings between adjacent upstream and downstream compartment, which in turn are arranged to provide a serpentine flow path through the flocculation tank. A mechanical mixer is mounted in each compartment for supplementing the mixing energy provided by the serpentine flow, particularly during period of low water flow rates. The aim of this research work is to construct a model of a flocculation tank capable of contributing in the water treatment process to provide domestic water supply for NDA permanent site. The objective of construction of coagulation /flocculation chamber is to produce a settled water of low turbidity which in turn will allow reasonably long filter run using suitable coagulants type and required amount or dosage and achieving an effective floc formation.
