Perception of Parties to Third Party Motorcycle Insurance Policy in Lagos Metropolis, Nigeria
Folake Olowokudejo,Kunle Aduloju
International Journal of Economic Development Research and Investment , 2010,
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to find out people's perception of motorcycle insurance while comparing the perceptions of insurance companies' staff with that of their customers (the motorcyclists) and also find out the major causes of motorcycle accidents in Nigeria. A total of 140 respondents were sampled using the questionnaire. The Kolmogorov Smirnov test was used to test the hypothesis. Findings show a general negative perception of insurance services by the motorcyclist and a large disparity in the responses of the motorcyclists and the insurance companies' staff. The major causes of motorcycle accidents are also found to be over speeding, carelessness and poor driving skills.
Organizational Commitment and Corporate Ethical Values: Exploring the Nexus between Employees' Psychological Contract and Firms' Ethical Behaviour in the Nigerian Insurance Industry
Musa Obalola,Kunle Aduloju,Folake Olowokudejo
Journal of Management and Sustainability , 2012, DOI: 10.5539/jms.v2n1p43
Abstract: Commitment of employees to their organisations has been one of the central research themes in organisational study. Though, many predictors of organisational commitment abound in the literature, much is however not known on how ethical behaviour in the organisation affects employees’ commitment. Considering the nature of insurance services, and high potentials for ethical dilemma in the industry, this study contributes to organisational commitment literature by providing further understanding on the impact of corporate ethical values on organisational commitment in Nigeria. Underpinned by cognitive dissonance theory, the study proposes a significant relationship between the two constructs. While controlling for some demographic factors, corporate ethical values was hypothesized as a significant determinant of organisational commitment. With data from 415 managers, collected through Hunt’s et al (1989) Corporate Ethical Value and Hunt’s et al (1985) organisational commitment scales, the results of the multivariate analysis were presented, and discussed with managerial implications.
Economic Reforms and Democratic Consolidation in Nigeria
Kunle Ajayi
The Social Sciences , 2013,
Abstract: Democratic transition without a viable economic foundation cannot be sustained. Nigeria s emerging democracy is faced with the challenges of meeting the welfare aspirations of the citizenry. Economic downturn, leadership insensitivity and indifference have constrained good governance and provision of dividends of democracy to the electorates. The nation suffers weak public and private sectors and poor macro-economic environment. Attempts at revamping the economy through liberalized policy reforms have become contradictory and paradoxical in the sense that they have enhanced the poverty and hardship level of the citizenry and the gradual elimination of the middle class. Consequently, mass discontentment against the regime is growing. The generality of the people are increasingly developing a sort of lack of psychological resistance against any attempts at a return to military governance. The problematique, therefore, is that can the emerging democracy survive in a situation of deepening material poverty and without economic empowerment of the people?
Post-Conflict Peace Management in Angola
Kunle Ajayi
The Social Sciences , 2013,
Abstract: Peace-building and peace sustenance pose major challenges in societies emerging from endemic conflicts. Can the demise of Jonathan Savimbi be a permanent road to peace in Angola? Post-conflict peace management is as difficult as conflict management. Management of deep conflicts in divided societies has gone beyond negative peace, which embodies cessation of hostilities by belligerents/insurgents. The challenges in post-conflict Angola are, therefore, the consolidation and sustenance of the seeming peace and the engendering of durable security and political stability. The major concern of the study is to examine the possibility interventions for realizing sustainable peace in post-conflict Angola.
The Child Refugee Syndrome in Africa: The Case of Lagos, Nigeria
Kunle Ajayi
The Social Sciences , 2013,
Abstract: Refugee crisis in Africa is assuming a new dimension. Parent refugees and other adults are subjecting African children refugees, who constitute approximately half of people living in emergency conditions, to economic exploitation. The plight of children refugees, apart from being a disastrous setback for international humanitarian laws, is also a pointer to the paying of lip service in Africa to child rights and the child as zone of peace. It equally amplifies the gap between theory and practice of international humanitarian measures for child rights generally. The problematic concerns, therefore, are: what is the impetus for children refugees` economic exploitation? What are the conditions of refugees` camps? In other words, what makes street life more attractive to refugees than camp life? What hazards are children refugees exposed to as effects of their exploited street life? What are the basic international humanitarian instruments protecting children refugees? Lastly, what challenges do the illegal exploitation and violation of the rights of children refugees pose to children refugees` advocacy? The study`s findings reveal that child refugee exploitation as a new phase in African refugee crisis is a function of the region`s deepening economic crisis and therefore, the syndrome has a direct correlation with the struggle for survival in the continent.
Nigeria s Foreign Policy and Image Crisis
Kunle Ajayi
The Social Sciences , 2013,
Abstract: A nation s ability to interact with other nations is a reflection of its acceptance internationally and evaluation of its level of civility in terms of behavioral conformity with international legal principles. President Olusegun Obasanjo, has since the inauguration of his administration in May, 1999 been trying hard to resuscitate the nation s battered image abroad. The president s shuttle diplomacy across the globe is yet to achieve a convincing impact on the civilized international community in terms of image-building and respect for the nation and Nigerians abroad. Nigerians are treated with indignity, contempt, impunity and suspect beyond the nation s shores. The problematic challenge of the nation s foreign policy is how to overcome its image crisis and deficiency in integrity and discipline and thereby securing the desired respect for its citizens internationally.
Election Administration in Nigeria and the Challenges of the 2007 Elections
Kunle Ajayi
The Social Sciences , 2013,
Abstract: Poor election administration remains a recurring problem of electoral politics in Nigeria. The credibility and general acceptability of any election outcomes and the legitimacy of the elected government are a function of the transparency, freeness and fairness of the electoral process. The 2007 elections look set to be the most critical in the nation`s efforts to consolidate and sustain the growing democracy. Apart from its challenge to the nation`s capacity to hold a successful civilian-to-civilian election, the election has stimulated keen interest because of its importance in determining the future of democracy in Nigeria. Skepticisms and apprehensions about the feasibility of a successful transition are engendered by the prevailing difficulties confronting the transition process in terms of growing political violence and failing electronic voters registration exercise which is believed to be an artificially and officially created obstacle designed to ensure that the 2007 elections fail and consequently ensuring the actualization of a planned hidden third term agenda for the Obasanjo presidency. The study examines the major challenges confronting INEC in its attempts to conduct credible elections with popularly acceptable results devoid of traditional controversies and crisis associated with previous transitional elections. The study operates from the premise that relative political stability, legitimacy of government and democratic sustainability are interactively conditioned by transparent and credible elections.
The Relevance of Public Complaints Commission to Nigeria's Democratic Development
Kunle Aina
International Journal of Advanced Legal Studies and Governance , 2012,
Abstract: The paper critically examines the statutory provisions on the Public Complaint Commission (hereinafter called the Commission), and make appropriate suggestions for reform. The Public Complaints Commission is a statutory creation with wide powers of inquiry and investigation: it has wide powers to receive complaints from members of the public against maladministration and misuse of administrative machinery by any public authority and companies or their officials. In Nigeria like other developing countries, the use of administrative power by officers of government and their institutions to oppress, victimize and discriminate against the citizenry is quite common and rampant. The use of administrative powers to flagrantly abuse the citizen's human rights and freedom is also a common occurrence. Thus, there is the need for government to intervene and take definite action to stem this problem that is gradually embarrassing the government, which led to the promulgation of the Public Complaints Commission Decree 311 (now ACT)2 of 1975.
The Machinery for Raising Capital by Companies through Debt Finances in Nigeria
Kunle Aina
International Journal of Advanced Legal Studies and Governance , 2011,
Abstract: This study aimed at examining critically the legal machinery for creating debenture by companies, rights of the debentures holders and methods of enforcement of the debenture in Nigeria. The machinery for raising capital through debenture is not well articulated in the Companies and Allied Matters Act (CAMA) 1990. The position of the law on the rights and duties of the parties to a floating charge is inadequate and reforms are urgently required as current edition of the law allows for fraud on unwary parties. This study’s submission was that the law be reviewed in such a way that many loopholes like the ninety day rule in Nigeria is changed, either reduced or changed to one of immediate notification of such transaction to the commission, to ensure some level of certainty in this area of the law.
