Publication Authors Opafunso, Z.O. and Adepoju O.O.
Year Published 2016
Abstract

The dilapidation state of the Nigeria prisons demonstrates a condition that cannot guarantee the reformatory process of the inmates. This can be attributed to the disregard for the welfare of the inmates and failure to implement the prison reforms recommendations. The paper examined the effectiveness of prisons reforms on the welfare of inmates in Ado Ekiti and Olokuta prisons in Ekiti and Ondo States respectively. The study employed a descriptive survey research design with the use of a structured questionnaire to obtain information from the inmates. Multi stage sampling technique was adopted to select the respondents (inmates) from the two prisons. Data for this study were analysed using descriptive statistics and chi square to test the hypothesis formulated for the study. The study revealed that poor administration of the criminal justice systems and unethical practices of the Nigeria police force in Nigeria resulting to high number of inmates awaiting trials are the major causes of overcrowding of the prisons. Therefore, overcrowding constitute a major threat to the welfare of the inmates. In addition the study revealed that prison reforms have a significant impact on the welfare of the inmates in Ado Ekiti and OlWEJokuta. The study recommended government intervention in the implementation of the previously recommended prison reforms, constant supervision of the prisons by the Minister of interior and allocation of funds for provision of infrastructure to cater for the needs of the Nigeria Prison Service.

Publication Authors Adepoju O.O., Opafunso Z.O and Lawal A.F.
Year Published 2017
Abstract

The quality of service delivery at Primary Health Care in Nigeria is considered non satisfactory. One of the factors identified is the substandard performance of the health workers. This paper examines the influence of performance appraisal on health worker’s service delivery in Primary Health Care facilities in Nigeria. The study adopted a survey research design with the use of structured questionnaire and in-depth interview to collect data. Multi stage sampling technique was used to sample 241 health workers across the sampled facilities in South-western Nigeria. The data collected was analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics of statistical package for social science (SPSS version 22). Regression analysis was used to test the hypothesis. The result of the simple regression analysis shows that performance appraisal significantly predict quality health service delivery in PHC at R square = 0.556, p< 0.05 which indicate that performance appraisal accounts for about (55.6%) of the variability of quality of health service delivery in PHC. The result also indicates a strong positive Beta coefficient of (β = 0.746 p < 0.05). The study concludes that performance appraisal is a common practice in PHC, used mostly for staff promotion. The study therefore recommends regular appraisal of workers’ performance, identification of training needs and recognition/reward of staff to encourage better performance.
