Securing Nigeria’s Crude Oil and Gas Pipelines – Change in Current Approach and Focus on the Future
Achilike Chukwuemeka MacDonald Ngozi

Abstract: The perennial bombardment of Nigerian pipelines by agitating militants has become an embarrassingly serious security threat; coupled with the unfettered crude oil bunkering that has defied solutions and caused huge negative impact on the most populous black nation’s economy. Unfortunately, most of the country’s pipeline protection techniques are still obsolete. Though new technologies like fiber-optic sensing, drones, infra-red capable satellites/GPS systems and SCADA techniques have become popular, but not being suited for Nigeria renders them ineffective.

This research is explanatory research in that it aims to explain any empirical findings found in the study. Method to collect the data is by usingquestionnaires given to 150 auditor staffs at the Auditor office in 13 Districts in the province of Southeast Sulawesi, Indonesia. The technical method to select sample is by using purposive random sampling based on the auditors, position in the office. The study found that both variables of the professionalism and competence of auditors have significant influences towards the performance of auditors working in the auditors offices in Southeast Sulawesi. Therefore, the regional government in general and the auditors offices in the province of Southeast Sulawesi in particular must give serious attention to both of professionalism and competence of their auditors in order to improve the performance of the auditors.

Association between radiologic finding of empty sellaturcica and idiopathic intracranial hypertension
Dr. NajatAdel Hashim , Zaineb Hashim

Abstract: The definition of Empty sella syndrome encompasses subarachnoid spaceherniation toward the sellaturcica by passing through the diaphragm of the sellaturcica and it is frequently associated with flattening of the pituitary gland to certain extent or non-visualization of the pituitary gland. The empty sella has been accompanied byraised intracranial pressure (ICP); decrease in volume of pituitary gland; and posteriorly placed optic chiasm. The present study reviewed 3000 cases with chronic headache for radiologic evidence of empty sellaturcica and associated idiopathic intracranial hypertension at Al-Dewaniyah teaching hospital from January 2012 through may 2016. Out of 3000 patients enrolled in the present study, 20 patients only (0.7%) had positive radiologic signs suggestive of empty sella syndrome. Papileodema, confirmed by opthalmoscopic examination carried out in the ophthalmology department by ophthalmologist, was found in 8 patients (40%). Highly significant association was found between papileodema and intracranial hypertension (P= 0.020), with an Odds ratio of 18.33 (95% Confidence Interval; 1.51-222.89).

RISK OF GEO-HELMINTH INFECTION IN CAMPUS EATERIES IN CALABAR, NIGERIA
Ukpong, Iniodu George; Edet, Samuel Victor

Abstract: The pivotal role of environment in their epidemiology presents a key element of risk of geohelminthic diseases as a public health problem, especially in populated areas. This study was aimed at determining the risk of geohelminth infections, viewed from the perspective of the environment around food centers, in a densely populated academic facility. Fresh top soil samples were collected within 3cm depth from around the immediate surroundings of three eateries; 2 restaurants and 1 cafeteria, within the main campus of Cross River University of Technology, Calabar. Soil samples were analysed for helminth ova using Sucrose floatation method. The study recorded occurrence of ova of the following species: Trichuris trichiura (40.50%, n = 49), Ascaris lumbricoides, (27.27%, n = 33), Necator americanus (21.48%, n= 26), and Strongyloides stecoralis (10.74%, n = 13); with highest percentage around the cafeteria (36.36%; n = 44). There was no significant difference in parasite occurrence around the eateries, (p > 0.05). Soil contamination might have resulted from runoff from faecally polluted fields within the campus and from its immediate surroundings. Occurrence of infective stages of parasites around the eateries poses high risk of geohelminths infection in the university community. Findings in this study beam on the need to check promiscuous defaecation within the campus environment, high sanitary and hygiene standards by eatery operators, health education and good drainage and paving of immediate surroundings of public eateries. This study reports the risk of geohelminthiasis in the institution; studies are underway to determine actual prevalence of infections.
