Recent macroeconomic developments in Nigeria s financial sector reveal a strong desire by the monetary authorities to reposition Nigeria s financial system to meet the trend of globalization. This study therefore, investigated the determinants of private domestic savings in Nigeria and also examined the impact of savings and bank credits on Nigeria s economic growth.Two models were adopted viz Distributed Lag-Error Correction Model (DL-ECM) and Distributed Model. The empirical results showed a positive influence of values of GDP per capita (PCY), Financial Deepening (FSD), Interest Rate Spread (IRS) and negative influence of Real Interest Rate (RIR) and Inflation Rate (INFR) on the size of private domestic savings. Also positive relationship exists between the lagged values of total private savings, private sector credit, public sector credit, interest rate spread, exchange rates and economic growth. We therefore recommend, among others, that government s effort should be geared towards improving per capita income by reducing the unemployment rate in the country. Also growth should be enhanced through improved savings, credit allocation and investments in highly productive sectors.
This book is a product of different researches that adopt the ethics and good corporate governance frameworks. There are many fundamentals questions to ask in relation to ethical issues. Answers to these questions can be found in different sections of this book. This book is made up four sections. The first section explores the relationship between ethical leadership and trust from a new thinking perspective and proposes a new theoretical framework for the study of the relationship between ethical leadership and trust. The second section looks at ways to address the ethical issue of bribery from different dimensions. The third section examines the relationship between the four-main normative ethical approaches (deontological, utilitarian, virtue, and care) and corporate social responsibility (CSR) and how the sustainability roles of multinational oil corporations (MNOC) operating in Nigeria s Niger Delta can be improved. Lastly, the fourth section, evaluate public governance and management in Africa from a utilitarian (good or bad consequences) perspective and proposes ways for improving the situation.
Agricultural cooperatives are seen as a veritable tool for improving farm production and rural better livelihood. Cooperative studies in Nigeria, like many other developing nations have concentrated on economic variables despite the belief globally that the social aspects of cooperation are equally important. This book presents an empirical study that investigated the capability of the farmers co-operative societies in transforming the rural economy through improved livelihood. This can be realistic if members well being is better than non-members . The study has shown that co-operators and non-co-operators were not different in many of their personal characteristics, the co-operators were however better in the economic status, adoption level, family health status, social-economic status and social participation. The study then established that participation in farmers co-operatives contributes to some dimensions of members socio-economic well-being. If active participation is encouraged and co-operatives become more broad-based in activities, it could indeed be a virile tool in transforming the rural economy.
The economic recession that ravaged many nations including Nigeria has opened the eyes of leaders, academicians and researchers in search for what can be done in order to reduce its negative effects on citizens. It is in this regard, that this work examined the relationship between economic diversification activities and national income measured by GDP. This work would help Federal Governments, States and Local Governments leaders and partners to diversify economic activities with main aim of maximizing national income measured through GDP. It would help researchers to have current evidence about the contribution of diversification of economy in improving national income of a nation, which is source of funds that support public expenditure measured by physical and social infrastructures that improve quality of life of citizens. The results demonstrated that agriculture is imperative, food and beverages play a vital role and mining sector is still undeveloped in Nigeria. The work concludes that diversification in a fundamental option that will solve national challenge and it recommends for diversification in many sectors than only relying on crude oil.
This book draws on extant civil society theories in explaining how strong and dense civil societies help enhance the sustainability of democracy by improving governance and state institutional performance. Despite mounting criticism that civil society can be inimical to the stability of democracies and lead into institutional mal-performance, I argue that a strong civil society (even in the absence of a strong state) is a necessary element in the consolidation of democracies. I investigate the empirical question by using a nested approach of combining a large n cross-national study that is supplemented by case study evidence in Nigeria, the Philippines, South Korea, Brazil and Russia. The book''s major implication is to provide empirical support to theoretical propositions about civil society''s ''supposed'' beneficial effect on democratic governance that has not been adequately empirically evaluated and assessed among transitional democracies. The findings show that the pre-transition and post-transitional strength of civil society among more than 60 transitional states have a positive effect in promoting better governance and institutional performance.
