research interest


1.    Development Communication

Agriculture in Nigeria and Africa cannot develop unless the technologies developed for farmers are successfully transferred to them. My research interest is in understanding the farmers’ communication environment and then develop communication strategies that can successfully transfer innovations to them. In this regards, Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) become both tools for reaching the farmers, and as research topic. The same communication studies are deployed in the areas of ;

HIV/AIDS Health message Campaigns


2.   Globalization and rural development in Nigeria

        The world has become a global village, hence, any problem in one part of the world           has a direct or indirect consequence on rural development in Nigeria. Also,                Globalization and commercialization have opened international markets for crops          produced by local farmers. I have been interested in:

a)      studying how cassava farmers in Nigeria have been responding to these global markets;

b)      impact of economic meltdown on rural development;

c)      climate change; consequences and adaptation strategies for farmers in the south eastern Nigeria.


3.     Impact studies.

        I have been evaluating the impact of some rural development projects in agriculture, 

health and education.


Current Research Projects

a.       Mitigating the spread of HIV/AIDS disease among rural farmers in Abia State through different communication strategies.

b.      Directing the rural development strategies of Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, in developing and implementing poverty alleviation programmes.
