Research Interest

Topic: Workplace Relations And Gender Studies

Description: My Research interest has centred majorly on workplace relations which cut across people working in both formal and informal settings. I have specifically drawn attention to non-standard types of employment, pattern of non-standard employment, indecent work, work hazard and occupational health hazard. I have also highlighted gender mainstreaming in my work and wrote on trade union in Nigeria emphasizing more on the challenges of trade unions. In my recent research interest, I have delved into gender differences in work environment among others. I intend working more on gender issues across board both in formal and informal settings and specialising extensively in Workplace relations and gender Studies.

Current Research

Sexual Exchange among Women in Cross-border Trade along Lagos-Seme Axis

Research Details

In West African Countries, borders create opportunities for informal networks of trade and exchange. Some of the women involved in the activities across the borders operate without official permit. Thus, they engaged in transactional sex with those who may facilitate their movement across borders. The study examines sexual relations in cross-border trade with implications for HIV spread in Nigeria. The research adopted a qualitative approach to study the network of relationships between WICBT and other security operatives along the axis, socio-economic background of the respondents, awareness and risk of contracting sexually transmitted diseases. Forty women were selected for FGDs, stratifying them into four sessions based on the type of goods, age and years of experience. In-depth interviews were used to elicit information from 3 drivers and 16 security agents. The study reveals that some of these women used sex as a means of negotiation with border officials to avoid confiscation. None of the women interviewed used condoms during their last sexual intercourse preceding the survey. It was discovered that more than two-third of the respondents have heard about HIV/AIDS but believed that they are not at risk of infection due to their ignorance. The study concludes that the observed sexual relationships may act as a conduit for HIV and STIs into both Nigeria and Benin as these create sexual networks that may stretch over a wide geographical area. There is need for mobile education programmes targeted at this high risk group
