My research has adopted a holistic approach to adult education and covers the broad areas of management and administration, service delivery as well as sociology of adult education. My earlier research activities have focused extensively not only on analyzing and understanding the dynamics of government policies and practices and the resultant impact on service delivery; developing relevant tools that could aid efficiency and effectiveness of resource utilization and service delivery; but also on enhancing the utility of adult education as a tool for human development.
The current thrust of my research has been in the area of sociology of adult education especially as it relates to women’s issues and rights. This is in recognition of the reality that at the core of adult education lays a vision of inclusive, participatory development. Thus as a result of an awakening interest in women studies and the impact of culture and power on the products of social relationships between men and women, I have extended my research interest into the tripartite area of adult education, gender and development.
Thus, in my current research I have focused on the interplay of power within Nigeria’s culture of patriarchy on the well-being of women and children. Attention has been on a contextual critical appreciation of the interface of other different matrices of domination with gender in development. I have therefore concentrated on broadening the knowledge base of the impact of patriarchy on women’s human rights, their reproductive health and access to education and other critical resources, as well as the forms, nature and consequences of women’s resistance to patriarchal cultural practices in Nigeria. Some of the current researches have been deliberately multi-disciplinary in other to enrich the methodology and research outcomes. In all these however, we did not lose sight of the place of adult education as a critical tool for advocacy, and mobilization towards the empowerment of women and children in Nigeria and ultimately nation development.
My research has therefore contributed immensely to the area of sociology of adult education especially with regard to gender mainstreaming, gender empowerment, gender justice and gender equity. My research findings are designed to be of strategic importance to policy makers, to educational planners and administrators, to academic researchers and other strategic stakeholders.
