Enterotoxigenicity Assessment of Escherichia coli and Salmonella spp. isolated from snails and Zobo Drink using suckling albino rats
Asiton-a Asifamabia Dick , Amudatu Ambali Adedokun, Evelyn Orevaoghene Onosakponome

Abstract: This study was carried out to investigate the enterotoxigenic profile of Escherichia coli obtained from Zobo drinks and Snail samples and Salmonella spp. obtained from a Poultry farm in suckling albino rats. For the study a total of 30 suckling albino rats were obtained from the Animal Department, University of Port Harcourt, Choba. The suckling albino rats were used to evaluate the enterotoxigenicity potentials of the Escherichia coli isolates (Zobo drink 1, Zobo drink 2, snail sample 1, snail sample 2) and Salmonella spp. (S1, S2, S3, S4) using Gut/body ratio (G/B) and fluid accumulation ratio (FAR). The results after 4 hours shows that the fluid accumulation ratio as follows: Zobo drink 1 (0.050), Zobo drink 2 (0.090), snail 1 (0.087), snail 2 (0.099) and S1 (0.099), S2 (0.080), S3 (0.122), S4 (0.124), indicating toxicity potential of the test isolates, except Zobo drink 1 considering the ˃0.065 Fluid Accumulation Ratio. The practice of good hygiene, proper cooking of food and adequate enlightenment is strongly recommended.

THE IMPACT ON IMPLEMENTATION OF PROMOTER PROGRAM POLICY OF THE INDONESIAN NATIONAL POLICE (POLRI) AND CONTROL TOWARD LAW ENFORCEMENT AT THE METROPOLITAN SUBREGIONAL POLICE OF SOUTH JAKARTA
Hari Prayogo Wicaksono, Dr. Rahimullah, Dr. Ir. Sriyono Joko Sutopo

Abstract: This study has a background of the existence of law enforcement cases at Metropolitan Subregional Police of South Jakarta. Such law enforcement cases are caused by less effective of the implementation of promoter program policy of the Indonesian National Police (Polri) and control. This study has purpose to know the impact of implementation on such promoter program policy of the Indonesian National Police (Polri) and control toward law enforcement at Metropolitan Subregional Police of South Jakarta, either partially or collectively. It uses proportionate stratified random sampling with totally 80 respondents. This study has a quantitave method with regression analysis. The techniques for data collection use documentation, questionnaires and desktop study.

Physicochemical and Microbiological properties of soil in Ahoko: A Suspected Petroleum Bearing Site (SPBS)
Munachimso Odenakachi VICTOR-EKWEBELEM, Udeme Joshua Josiah IJAH, Olabisi Peter ABIOYE and Yahaya Baba ALKALI

Abstract: Microbial surface prospecting is a vital process in the exploration of hydrocarbon suspected site, as a result the aim of this study was to assess the microbial and physicochemical properties of soil in a suspected petroleum bearing site at Ahoko, Kogi State, Nigeria, to ascertain the potent site for exploration using the presence of microbial anomalies. The four identified sites; A, B, C and D were mapped and gridded. Soil samples were collected from each of the sites and analysed for physicochemical properties, culturable heterotrophic aerobic bacteria, total fungi and distribution of specific hydrocarbon oxidizing microbes. Physicochemical properties showed that pH of the sites were within the range of 5.30 to 7.05. Site A had the highest total organic carbon (1.18%), conductivity (12.0 ± 3.50 µ∫/cm), available Phosphorus (12.06 ± 0.00 mg/kg), base saturation (66.03 ± 0.00%) and exchangeable acid (2.28 ± 0.58 cmol/kg) compared to other sites. The aerobic heterotrophic bacteria in the soil varied with respect to the month of sampling/site at the range of 0.38 x 106 CFU/g to 2.88 x 106 CFU/g. Total number of culturable fungi ranged from 1.27 x 103 CFU/g to 11.0 x 103 CFU/g. Site A had the highest number of methane and ethane oxidizing microbes. Site C showed the highest number of propane oxidizing microbes of 1.15 x 102 CFU/g while C had the least, 0.04 x 102 CFU/g. There was little or no growth of butane oxidizing microbes in all the sites. The study revealed the presence of high concentrations of hydrocarbon oxidizing bacteria in Ahoko area of Bida basin. Site A had higher population of ethane oxidizing bacteria than the rest of the sites and therefore, it could be a possible site for hydrocarbon in Bide basin.

Integration of Information & Communication Technology in the Teaching of Sport, Physical & Health Education for Sustainable Development in North-Eastern Nigeria
Rajah Balami, Sunday Malgwi & Omeje Chigozie

Abstract: Vision defines the desired or intended future state of an organization or enterprise in terms of its fundamental objectives and/or strategic direction. Vision is a long term view, sometimes describing how the organization would like the world in which it operates to be (This Day 2016). The dream of Nigeria Federal Government is to be among the top 20 leading economics in the world by the year 20-20-20 as the importance and popularity of sport and physical and health education in our contemporary affairs have made the teaching and coaching of the discipline an attractive and respectable phenomenon. The awareness that physical and health education and sports are integral aspect of general education has placed greater demands and responsibilities on the shoulders of its professionals and stakeholders.

INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY POLICY AND ELECTRONIC GOVERNANCE IN NIGERIA PUBLIC SERVICE: PROBLEMS, AND PROSPECTS
Obikaonu Pauline Chimuru

Abstract: This study examined and analyzed the information technology policy on the utilization of e-governance in the public service sector. Data utilized for the study were extracted from primary sources i.e. questionnaires and direct interviews. It made use of the Nigerian Public Universities as its case study of public service. The mean, standard deviations were used while the t-test was used to check the assumptions formulated. Empirical results show that information technology policy, in line with theory, exhibits a significant positive impact on e-governance implementation. This shows that given the benefits of e-governance, combating the challenges facing the implementation of e-governance is indispensable in the attainment of sustainable economic development in Nigeria. An increase in government expenditure on improving information technology in all sectors of the economy leads to efficiency and increased productivity of public sectors. As a result of the computed value of the statistical analysis, it was revealed that the low extent of ICT utilization by the public service sector is a critical issue affecting the execution of the e-governance system in Nigeria.

AN EXTENSION OF THE DOMAIN OF GAMMA FUNCTIONS OF COMPLEX VARIABLES USING ANALYTIC CONTINUATION
Egahi, M., Agbata, B.C., Shoir, M.M. & Ode, O.J

Abstract: This article presents an extension of the domain of gamma functions using analytic continuation. We used the process of analytic continuation to extend the gamma function beyond the original domain, the half plane Re(z)>0.We obtained new interesting results involving analytic continuation and the gamma functions with illustrative examples.
