The Impact of Fringe Benefits on The Performance of Workers in The Hotel andCatering Industry A Study of Selected Hotels and Cathering Firms in Enugu Urban

By Okpala, Anthony Ugoh

This study examines the impact of fringe benefits on the performance of
workers in the Hotel and Catering industry, with a view to establisl~ing its
importance to the workers and to the industry. This is intended to assert whether
or ncit ,poor fringe benefit schemes could be an impediment to the development of the
sub-sector.
The study is organized in five chapters each of which deals with some specific
aspects of the study.
The first chapter provide a framework for the study. It embodies what niay
be regarded as the proposal for the study and therefore provided the necessary
background information which helped to determine the structure of the study.
The second chapter deals with the review of related literature. It provides the
theoretical foundation upon which the intricacies of the subject-matter were closely
knitted.
Chapter three deals with the research metl~odologyw hich involve a systematic
description and analysis of the tools and methods utilized in the research study. It
also show the different statistical methods employed in the research analysis.
In the fourth chapter, the researcher "waded his feet' into the stream of
research analysis1'. The research data collected in the field through the research tools
were presented and analyzed. Also, the hypothesis that guided data collection were
verified. A brief summary of the entire work is presented in the last chapter,
together with conclusion and recommendations.
The findings of the study reveals that fringe benefit is of great inlportance to
the workers in the industry, and to the industry. And also, that poor fringe benefit
schemes could serve as an impediment to the development of the sub-sector because
of its importance. The study made recommendatioi~s that will help to remedy the
situation, to engender a smooth and faster development of the Hotel and Catering
industry in Nigeria.

Afromoon Theatre: A Conceptualization of Modern African Theatre

By Abaduah, Stanley Chikadibia

The Afromoon Theatre is an indigenous African Theatre that is highly
functional and relevmt to the Afri,.m community unlike the western aestheticized
and dialogue oriented form of theatre. Afromoon Theatre strives to present a
theatre that will serve as an instrument of change and redirection ro the African
Theatre practice in this contemporary African States.
Afromoon theatrc projects the African's tradition of public performance that
are visual, visible which share a c ~ nmu n a ie xperience in whicl~th e Afromoon
audience are inmersed in a rli~:.~ll-icaslp ecti~cl(;enactecll ive hcfi)rc thc Afi-o~llooll
audience.
The Afromoon theatre embraces almost all the relevant art forms that can
be found in Africa like music, dance songs,' mime, pantomime, rituals, rites, rich
costumes, special Afrolnoon stage, masquerading, storytelling and theatrical
spectacles. That is why it is known as Theatre of the Mricans by the Africans for
the Africans.

Estimates of Genetic and Environmental Variability and Heritability of Processing Characters of Tomatoes (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill) in Southern Nigeria

By Abani, Mark S.c.

~eveh cultivars of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill, ) ,
'Alphaf, 'Ife No. lq, 'Rorna VFt, 'Round Red1, fSupersonic',
'UC-82' and 'UN-81' were evaluated in field trials to obtain
estimates of'the genetic and environhental components of
variations for characters of interest to the processing
industry. They were planted on three dates, February, June
and November 1982, at three locations, Nsuidca, Nkpologu and Ezimo
in the derived savannah zone of southern Nigeria. From the data
obtained, it was observed that, colour, yield, $-carotene and
ascorbic acid were significantly affected by location, while pH,
titratable acidity, reducing sugars, total soluble solids, colour,
yield, 8-carotene and ascorbic acid were significantly affected
by season. Only viscosity, and pressure required to b'Peak the
skin of the fruits were unaffected by season or location.
These characteristics varied significantly between cultivarso

processing characters. Heritability (H%) varied from 51% for
@-carotene to 87% for titratable acidity. All heritability
estimates indicated that a new high yielding, high quality,
adapted processing-tomato cultivar could be developed by breeding.

An Evaluation of the Performance of Indigenous Banks in Nigeria

By Abanifi , Kenechukwu A

This papcr has composed of an evaluation of the performance of indigenous
banking system in Nigeria. Indigenous banks are those banks owned wholly by
indigenous investors. Also they represent hanks in which the governmcnt controls
all or the majority of the bank shares. 'The Nigerians decided to found their own
banks when credit nccds wcre not met by the expatriate banks. Rather
discriminatory attitudes were shown to them using rigid rules in the assessment of
their credit risks.
Another perspective of indigenous banking era came when independent
African govcrnrnents legislated to nationalize bank shares wholly or partly in order
to influence banking policics and management with a view to securing large bank
lending for productive sectors of the economy. This brought about what is now
called mixed banking system in Nigeria. Virtually through Indigenization Decree of
1972 and 1977 all banks in the country became indigenously owned - mixed or
purely indigenous.
Nigerian indigenous banks (i.e. wholly) are state owned. The ownership of
these banks further subdivided into single and interstate indigenous commercial
banks. To save them from collapse State Governments bought over all these banks.
The banking system has a lot to offer jn the Nigcrian economy. LJntil such
time as all of the financial institutions in Nigeria have been thoroughly studied, it
will not bc possible to assess the significance of the banking system in a precise
manner. What follows is tlierefore imprcssionistic and ten1ntivc and may well have
to be podified when acldi1ional information becomes available.
Therc is not in Nigeria a wide range of overlapping institutions racing the
potential borrower. The various development agencies offer very little competition
to the banks as they usually have fairly rigid limitations to thcir Icnding ability
which effectively limit their potential clientele to small groups with limited overlap
bctwccn tlwn. I'hcir loans arc thc no st 1 ~ 1 - tlo ng-tcl-111a nd many havc at prcscrit
committed all of thcir available resources.

Africa in Gods Plan: New Testament Perspective of African Identity in Christianity

By Abbah, Ruth Laruba

'I'he crux or the issue that gave rise to this study is thc gcncral view of those
who have misundcrstood Christinnily and llicrcby misinformed others that Christianily
is the Wliitc-man's rcligion and thereby, a recent arrival on thc African continent. It
is, therefore, attackcd kom various angles for various reasons. 'I'he study has
cstablishcd from the Old 'l'cslament accounts, as the basic background literature, that
Gotl's relationship with the African land and people was fro111 n~illennia bcforc the

high costs whcn martyrdom was the lest of authentic Christianity. At that early age,
the bible was translated into two African languages, bcing the then first of its kind in
