Research in Progress1
Research in Progress: (i) Women, Religion and Development in Northern Nigeria: This research is ongoing. It undertakes an analysis of the interplay of Traditional/Islamic religious practices on women and development in the Islamic North. It is expected to be completed in the next one year.

Research in Progress2
(ii) The Ethics of Science and Technology: An African Paradigm. The research argues the thesis that a pro-active ethical approach to scientific and technological endeavours guarantees a more human friendly development which transforms the quality of human life on earth. The research further attempts to establish that sustainable human development is not and should not be a journey outward away from the essential human nature. Sustainable human development is argued here as the integral well being of man in both his material and spiritual (body and soul) life. The research shall argue the conclusion that, as humanity develops economically and technologically, it should involve the balance of short-term thinking and immediate gratification by shifting the balance towards improving the quality of human life on earth. It uses African humanistic heritage as a template for sustainable human development.
