THE DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OF A LEARNING TOOL FOR DEMONSTRATING AUTOMATIC JAVA CODE GENERATION FROM UML CLASS DIAGRAMS

Author: 
Mukhtar, M.I., and Galadanci, B. S.

The Emergence of UML as the de-facto standard for modelling systems has encouraged
the use of automated software tools that facilitate automatic code generation. The
significance of automatic code generation from UML diagrams has increased over the
traditional software development process due to benefits such as cost reduction, less
time consumption, maintainability and accuracy. The aim of this paper is to describe the
design and implementation of a learning tool for students to demonstrate automatic java

This study aimed at assessing sodium concentration in the ground waters of Azara and
it’s implication on human health. Water samples were collected from 9 different
boreholes were analyzed for sodium ion concentration using Flame Photometer. Blood
Pressure of 100 respondents were measured using a standard Mercurial
Sphygmomanometer. Similarly, age, gender and literacy of respondents were determined
through interviews. The respondents were randomly sampled and at least 11 from

A COMPARISON BETWEEN DIFFERENT IMAGE STEGANOGRAPHY ALGORITHMS

Information can be shared between two or more parties by hiding secret message(s)
under an image, this art is known as Steganography. This eases communication without
been traced by anyone not associated with the message. It is hard or even impossible to
know that there is anything embedded in the image. Rumours are already there that
terrorist are using image steganography to hide secret plans between themselves, this
prompted the urgency in detecting images that contain steganography so that this

RADIO FREQUENCY IDENTIFICATION GATE CONTROL SYSTEM

Identifying who is allowed to enter the premises of higher institution has always been an
issue in Nigeria, especially with the current state of insecurity in the country. The
current system of identification in most university is inefficient and unacceptable. To
produce a more efficient system, related literatures were reviewed and a Radio
Frequency Identificationtechnology was used to develop a gate control.An object (person)
can be identified by the unique identification number that each tag bears. The system

CITY GUIDE FOR ANDROID

The concept of context and context awareness has resulted in many mobile and
ubiquitous computing applications being developed. Introduction of Smart phones, led to
several applications being developed to meet different user requirements, part of which
is the tourism industry. Many platforms were deployed, in developing tourist
applications, but only a few were based on Android, and tailored towards users' needs.
This research intends to develop an Android tour guide application that is tailored

INSTITUTIONALISING MONITORING & EVALUATION IN GOVERNMENT: THE NIGERIAN EXPERIENCE

Author: 
Tukur Mohammed Ahijo and Olusanya Matthew

The purpose of this paper is to assess the various challenges encountered in the
institutionalization of government Monitoring & Evaluation (M&E) systems in Nigeria. The
paper highlights the successes and the pitfalls faced in the setting up of the government
M&E system. Nigeria is unique, in terms of its starting point and of the destination to
which it aspires ― much depends on the particular uses of M&E information for which the
system is being designed. That said, a number of lessons and success factors are

STABILITY ANALYSIS OF THE GIERER-MEINHARDT SYSTEM WITH ACTIVATOR DEGRADATION

Author: 
Abdulrahaman Lawal Suleiman

In this paper, the simplest version of the Gierer-Meinhardt model of morphogenesis is
studied which is an activator inhibitor system. This is done by determining the positive
steady states of the system and examining the eigenvalues using linear stability analysis
of the diffusion less situation. It is shown that the reaction kinetics cannot exhibit
oscillatory behavior when the degradation rate of the activator is less than one. It is also
shown that for a pattern to form, the inhibitor must diffuse faster than the activator.

THE ACCEPTANCE AND USE OF AUTOMATED TELLER MACHINES (ATMs) BY UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS

Author: 
Galadanci, B. S., and Abdulwahab, L.

Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) are increasingly being used in Nigeria and they have
all but replaced banking hall services. ATMs provide a special example of voluntary IT
platform that have been widely accepted for use in spite of the presence of alternatives.
The UTAUT model appears to have been developed for a commercial organization in mind
where IT systems are used to improve worker productivity and the general efficiency of
the organization. This paper is an attempt to validate a modified UTAUT model for these

CYBER TERRORISM VULNERABILITY ASSESSMENT OF SOME SELECTED ORGANIZATIONS IN KANO STATE NIGERIA

The utilization of cyber technology in our public and private lives has subsequently
increased our vulnerabilities to cyber crime. These vulnerabilities require more current
and reliable security systems to protect our expanding cyber technology. Even if federal
agencies adopt policies and procedures designed to protect the privacy of sensitive
electronic information, that information could still be compromised if the security of the
Internet servers, operating systems and software applications involved are inadequate.

INCIDENCE OF FUSARIUM SPECIES ON MAIZE GRAIN:A CASE STUDY OF RIMI AND UNGUWA UKU MARKETS OF KANO STATE

Author: 
Yahaya, S. M., Fagwalawa, L. D. and Jamila, M. D.

Maize is frequently infected by the Fusarium species producing mycotoxins resulting in
poor yield. An experiment was carried out to determine the incidence of fungal pathogen,
Fusarium species on the post-harvest losses of maize grain on sale at Rimi and Unguwa
uku markets. The study was carried out between September, 2015 to February, 2016.
Twenty samples of maize were collected twice a week from Rimi and Unguwa uku
markets. A total of three fusarium species comprising Fusarium oxysporum, Fusarium
