Financial Inclusion and Nigerian Economic Growth: An Empirical Investigation (2001-2021) (Published)

The aim of this study was to determine the impact of financial inclusion on economic growth in Nigeria. the study used an ex-post facto research design and investigated variables such as credit to the private sector (CPS), ATM transactions(ATM), and gross domestic product (GDP) as indicator variables for financial inclusion and economic growth, respectively. The Statistical Bulletin of the Central Bank of Nigeria, provided the annual time series statistics on private credit, ATM usage, and GDP from 2001 – 2021. Using the ordinary least square (OLS) approach, the data were examined. The study established credit to the private sector is positively related to economic growth and is statistically significant, However, ATM transactions have a positive and statistically insignificant relationship with economic growth in Nigeria The study suggests that monetary authorities implement measures to promote and increase the availability of credit to the private sector. r e.g., through reducing interest rates to levels that are conducive to growth objectives as this will favor economic development.

Teacher Classroom Practice: A Case Study of Teachers’ Awareness of Students’ Learning Styles in Calabar, Cross River State, Nigeria (Published)

Despite on-going global shifts in teaching and learning, driven by technological advancements, Nigerian teachers continue to practice  the traditional ‘teach and test at the end of the term’ method This instruction method is used with little consideration for pupils’ learning styles which has been proven to be key to learners’ academic success. This study seeks to investigate some Nigerian teachers’ awareness of their students’ learning styles in the course of instructional delivery. Pre and post observation techniques, semi structured interviews and questionnaires are going to be used to generate data.  Data will be coded and analysed to obtain the findings. Thereafter, recommendations will be made based on the result.

Evaluation of Learning Outcomes of Primary School Pupils in Ebonyi State, Nigeria (Published)

This research study which focused on Evaluation of  Learning Outcomes for both Public and Private Primary School pupils in Ebonyi State Nigeria, adopted a descriptive survey design. The sample size for the study was 3,041 pupils and was restricted to primary four (4) pupils, made up of 1503 males and 1538 females. Three research questions and two null hypotheses guided the study. Instrument for data collection was 110 test items developed by the researchers in the areas of Numeracy, Literacy and Life-skills .The instrument was given to the Experts for face and construct validity and was finally subjected to a reliability test, using  Kudar-Richardson formula 20(K-R 20) which yielded a reliability co-efficient of 0.78. The test instruments were administered to the pupils with the help of research Assistants. Mean, Standard deviation and Percentage were used to answer the research questions while t-test and Chi-square (x2) Statisticts were used to test the null hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. The results of the of the findings revealed that both male and female primary 4 pupils are very poor and have very low competencies in Numeracy, literacy and Life skills. It is therefore recommended that the Federal Government of Nigeria should mount training and retraining programmes for the teachers on the method teaching the pupils Mathematics, English language and Life skills, in addition to supply of  adequate textbooks. Also, supervision Team to monitor classroom teaching and learning should be set up among recommendations

The Relationship between Types of Misconceptions and Achievement in Genetics among Senior Secondary School Biology Students in Jos North LGA of Plateau State (Published)

This research work was aimed at finding out the relationship between types of misconceptions and achievement in genetics among senior secondary schools biology students’ in Jos-North Local Government Area of Plateau State. Correlation research as well as survey research designs were employed for this study. Three research questions and one hypothesis guided the study. The research was analyzed using frequency counts, percentages, mean and standard deviation while the hypothesis was analyzed using Pearson’s r. The population of the study consisted of randomly selected biology teachers and students’ of Government Senior Secondary Schools in the area of study. Thus, a total of two hundred and ten (210) respondents’ were used. Two hundred students and ten teachers drown from ten schools served as sample for the study.

Recommendations were made based on these findings. Some of these recommendations are; effective and evidence-informed pedagogic practices are clearly needed by all teachers, and students, to identify, overcome and eliminate misconceptions in the acquisition of accurate scientific knowledge, to promote effective and meaningful learning, teachers’ need to identify the causes of such misconceptions and find ways to rectify them.
