The report will prove useful for health policy making both at the university administration and national level. It can also serve as a model to aid HIV prevention and intervention strategies in Nigerian universities.
The essence of political public relations activities or strategies is to lobby for support. The application of political public relations strategies in party campaigns is very common and critical among political parties.

Among the strategies was social media, courtesy call/visits, opinion poll, monitoring agencies or associations, liaising with diplomats and presidents of other countries.

The research was design to appraise the role of the Church leaders in the fight against corruption which has become an endemic in Nigeria. This is because religion is seen to permeate the life of every human being as well as every society throughout the world, and every religion has norms, values and acceptable standards contained in its doctrine. However, with the prevalence of corruption in the Nigerian society today, it is an indication that the role of religion is falling and is losing its potency to correct the vices in the society. Focusing on Christian religion, the research probed that role of the Church leaders in curbing the menace. In carrying out the research, the researchers adopted observational method of data collection, which was complemented with documented sources. The research reveals that rather than curbing corruption, Christianity has been bastardized and commercialized to the extent that it is losing its appeal as a promoter of right values and spiritual standing as a result of factors such as quest for prosperity/materialism by adherents and Church leaders quest for power, victory over perceived enemies; selfish interests, sycophancy and the like. The research concludes that not only has the Christian religion as an anti-virus failed in its function to cure a virus such as corruption, it has in itself become a citadel of corruption. The research therefore recommends that government at all levels, religious leaders, adherents and the entire masses have a big role to play if the fight against corruption is to be successful.

Differences Between Manual & Computerized Accounting Systems Accounting can be done manually or using a computer.

This research has shown that it is feasible to embark on local production of toothpicks and put a permanent stop to its importation into the country. It will only demand 200 bamboo toothpick making machines to produce the number of toothpicks consumed per day during importation. This local production has some non quantitative benefits associated with it such as: job creation for skilled and unskilled workers; it will also bring about the reduction in capital flight in the nation’s economy and it will also help in preserving the foreign exchange of the nation which shall be helpful during economic crises, natural disasters and emergencies. There is the need to encourage private investors, most especially wood based investors and non-governmental organizations in the utilization of bamboo as an alternative to wood products and also the production of toothpicks in Nigeria since there is abundance of the raw material in the country and considering the non quantifiable benefits it stands to provide.
