It adopted the mixed method approach with a population of three hundred and three (303). Questionnaire and interview guide were used to collect data for the study.&nbsp; The quantitative data was analysed using IBM SPSS Version 22.0 and the qualitative data was also analysed thematically. The study discovered that second cycle institution teachers need information for teaching, learning and for research. Also, teachers rely on information from several sources to plan their lessons, write their teaching notes and update themselves on the subject matter of what they teach. Considering the role teachers play in the lives of students and the community as a whole, they need relevant information which must be timely, accurate and reliable. Therefore, the government, Ministry of Education (MOE), Ghana Education Service (GES), Heads of second cycle schools, and all Stakeholders are to ensure that proper information as well as information sources are made available to them to make the process of imparting knowledge more efficient.</p> 2020-10-23T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://www.journaljesbs.com/index.php/JESBS/article/view/30258 Vote-buying Enterprise and Voting Behaviour among Electorate: Evidence from Southern Nigeria 2020-10-30T12:32:23+00:00 Akinde Sunday Israel Micah, Damilola John damilolamicah@yahoo.com <p>This paper specifically reviews activities of political parties in terms of voters’ inducement during elections period in Nigeria. The paper deconstructs voters’ inducement as political economy created to attract electorates purposely to swing votes to benefit political party. The paper relied on secondary data retrieved through content analysis. It was evidently established that political parties in Nigeria especially the case in Edo, Ondo and Ekiti State, discretely engaged in voters’ inducement which come in the form of financial and material gifts. Financial gift was often distributed during voting period such that eligible voters were whisked and wooed by parties’ agents to swing votes. Some willing voters negotiated depending on the highest bidders. Yet some voters grabbed the opportunity to create economy for themselves such that they invested the fund in small scale business and ventures to survive. Besides, mega political parties with robust financial elbow were fingered as major perpetrators of voters’ inducement. Some voters apparently were overshadowed by the inducement due to tight economic condition and poverty. This paper recommends voters’ education to enlighten electorates and expose the consequence. The role of the media, church, mosque and schools is indispensable in this situation.</p> 2020-10-23T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
