Integration of LMD System in the Democratic Republic of Congo: Challenges and Prospects (Published)

This paper focus on the integration of LMD system (Bachelor’s, Master’s, Doctorate) in the Democratic Republic of Congo, it shpuld be noted that the LMD system in DRCongo has been a significant process in the higher education sector. This change was put in place to align education levels with international standards and promote student mobility and academic qualifications globally. The reform involved the adoption of new curricula based on the LMD structure, with particular attention paid to the professionalization of higher education and the alignment of curricula with the needs of the labor market. In addition, the introduction of the LMD system has also encouraged the development of research and innovation, as well as the creation of closer links between higher education institutions and the private sector. However, despite these advances, challenges remain, particularly with regard to institutional capacity, financial resources, and the need to ensure the quality and relevance of curricula. In summary, the integration of the LMD system in the Democratic Republic of Congo represents an important step towards improving higher education, but its long-term impact will depend on the ability to address the ongoing challenges and ensure effective and balanced implementation across the country.

Economic gains of whistle-blowing policy in Nigeria: prospects and challenges (Published)

It is no doubt that corruption is a global plague ravaging world’s economy. Corruption is depleting the scarce economic resources of developed and developing nations though, at varying intensities.  Corruption has also been described as the black hole which must be thoroughly covered. In a bid to fighting corruption in the world, the whistle blowing mechanism was adopted by several countries including the USA, UK, South Africa and Nigeria. To complement the efforts of ICPC and EFCC, the whistle-blowing machinery was adopted in Nigeria by the Muhammadu Buhari/Osinbajo administration in 2016. This paper examined the economic gains, prospects and challenges of the whistle blowing policy in Nigeria. The Role and Framing Theories were adopted in the study to explain the question of morality and persuasiveness through specific communication strategies to the citizens. The methodology used in the study was qualitative deductions from secondary data. The study discovered that the policy has attracted 5,000 tips which led to recovery of several billions of naira. Also discovered, was that there was no law protecting whistle-blowers from victimizations and recriminations. The paper therefore recommends that, the long overdue whistle-blower protection bill of 2011 should be passed into law as an emergency law amongst others
