Nigerian Police’s Aggressive Tendencies in Eastern Nigeria (Biafra): Roles of Psychological Well-Being, Empathy, and Emotional Intelligence (“Black Lives Matter” Campaign Implications) (Published)
The study examined Nigerian Police’s aggressive tendencies in Biafra (Eastern Nigeria). The objectives were to investigate whether psychological well-being, empathy, and emotional intelligence can reduce Police’s aggressive tendencies. Cluster and incidental sampled 230 Nigerian Police personnel participated. Valid/reliable aggression, psychological well-being, empathy, and emotional intelligence scales measured variables. Cross-sectional factorial design and multivariate regression were adopted. Findings were: Nigerian Police personnel possess very high aggressive tendency. Psychological well-being, empathy, and emotional intelligence of Nigerian Police personnel are very low, significantly leading to personnel’s high aggressive tendencies. Police personnel who are high in psychological well-being, empathy, and emotional intelligence will be low on aggressive tendencies. High level of psychological well-being significantly correlates with high empathy and emotional intelligence. Recommendations: Police personnel training, selection and development must strictly inculcate behavioural qualities of psychological well-being, empathy and emotional intelligence to reduce Police aggressive tendencies, implicated in the “Black Lives Matter” global campaign.
Potency of Inter-Personality and Family Demography in Predicting Other Personality Factors Of University Students in Anambra State, Eastern Nigeria (Biafra) (Published)
The study examined “potency of inter-personality and family demography in predicting other personality factors in Anambra State, Eastern Nigeria (Biafra)”. Objective is the likelihood of people’s behaviours and family demography predicting their other behaviours. Students (n=101) of Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University, Igbariam Campus, Anambra State, Eastern-Nigeria (Biafra), sampled using cluster and incidental techniques participated. Big-Five Personality Inventory of convergent validity .97 and Split-half reliability .75 was used. Cross-sectional and correlational designs, plus multivariate hierarchical regression were adopted. Findings: “Agreeableness” significantly predicted “conscientiousness”, and “negative emotionality”; “Conscientiousness” significantly predicted “negative emotionality”, and “open-mindedness”; “Birth order” significantly predicted family number of children; “Number of children”, “family socio-economy”, and “Christian denomination” were substantially non-significant negative predictors of personality; finally “Extraversion” was non-significant positive predictors of personality. More cross-cultural studies on the topic are recommended. Christian religion should re-appraise their personality shaping roles to be functionally effective.

Organizational Effectiveness in Media Industry: A Study of Public and Private Media Organizations in Anambra State, Eastern Nigeria (Biafra). (Published)
The study examined “organizational effectiveness in media industry: A study of public and private media organizations in Anambra State, Eastern Nigeria (Biafra)”. Data were collected with valid/reliable “Organizational Effectiveness Model Inventory”, through multi-stage sampling using 2×4 factorial designs. Multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA), and descriptive statistics were used. Results at p<.05 found no significant differences for organization type and overall organization effectiveness. Contrarily, between-subjects tests were significant for organization type and “goal attainment” and “strategic constituency” organizational effectiveness, but not significant for organization type and the “system resources” and “internal process” organizational effectiveness. Private media organizations accounted between 13% – 17% and 14% – 18% organizational effectiveness for “goal attainment” and “strategic constituency” dimensions respectively than public media organizations. Findings’ major implication is that ownership of media industry does not influence archived organizational effectiveness. Improvement is recommended on the “system resources” and “internal process” organizational effectiveness.
