Abstract: The issue of causality between electricity consumption and economic growth (GDP) has been a topic concerning energy economists’ for a number of years given that the results have important implications for policy makers. This interest has been stimulated by the persistent increase in the awareness of global warming and climate change. Furthermore, this issue is currently of fundamental importance given the very real threat of global warming and hence the need to cut electricity consumption to reduce emissions to help stem climate change. Renewable energy plays a vital role in economic growth. Energy consumption is, in Africa, one of the mostly consumed capital goods for economic growth realization, and it has nowadays become a need for the society to function properly.

FLOWER POLLINATION ALGORITHM FOR SOLVING OPTIMAL REACTIVE POWER DISPATCH PROBLEM
Abstract: This paper proposes a Flower Pollination Algorithm for solving the multi-objective reactive power dispatch problem. Minimization of real power loss and enhancement voltage stability index margin is taken as objective. Flower pollination algorithm is a new nature-inspired algorithm, based on the characteristics of flowering plants. The simulation results demonstrate better performance of the FPA in solving an optimal reactive power dispatch problem. In order to evaluate the performance of the proposed algorithm, it has been tested on IEEE 30 bus system and compared to other algorithms. Simulation results show that FPA is better than other algorithms in reducing the real power loss and enhancing the voltage stability.

THE INVOLVEMENT OF YOUTH CORP MEMBERS IN TEACHING IN NIGERIA: MATTERS ARISING AND WAY FORWARD
Abstract:The need to address the challenge of inadequate teachers in schools, in an attempt to improve the standard of education in the country, has made it imperative for Government to consider the option of involving many National Youth Corp members to teaching in Nigeria. This paper however examines the matters arising from their involvement in teaching, such as the use of untrained Corp members in teaching, low quality Corp members, arising from inappropriate training in tertiary institution, low commitment of Corp members to teaching, limited time being spent by Corp members in teaching, negative attitudes of Corp members in schools, lack of continuity in teaching, growing insecurity across the country. Recruitment of Corp members with teaching qualification, adequate supervision and monitoring of Corp members posted to schools, effecting discipline of Corp members that showed dereliction of duties, among others are recommended to improve the quality of teaching in schools and for effective service delivery by the Corp members involved in teaching in schools.
