Nigerian Turkish Nile University is a private university located in the centre of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, Nigeria.The Nigerian Turkish International College started in September 1998. The school opened with 76 students on a rented site at Cairo Street, Wuse 2, Abuja. The NTIC has proliferated into a network of schools located in Abuja, Kano, Kaduna, Lagos, Ogun and Yobe States. Parents and students of the NTIC have mounted pressure on the management to establish a university that will carry on the tradition of the NTIC at the tertiary level. In response to this, the parent company of the NTIC founded Nigerian Turkish Nile University .Tertiary level education forms the bedrock of high level manpower development in any nation. This highlights the need for a qualitative education at this level. There is a dearth of instructions and infrastructure to cater for the needs of our ever increasing number of secondary school leavers. This has made it imperative for the private sector to take initiatives in the areas of providing tertiary education, especially for an organization that has a track record in providing high quality education.

The translation method of determining phase equilibria and construction of phase diagrams for multicomponent systems was applied to investigate the phase equilibria in two quaternary Na, NH4//SO4, Cl-H2O (at 100 °C, 10 °C) and Na2SO4-K2SO4-MgSO4-H2O (at 35 °C) and three quinary Li, K//Cl, CO3, B4O7-H2O (at 0 °C), Na, K//Cl, SO4, B4O7-H2O (at 50 °C), and Na, K//Cl, CO3, B4O7 - H2O (at 25 °C) water-salt systems. The comprehensive closed phase equilibria diagrams for each of the systems were constructed at the relevant temperatures. The constructed diagrams for the quinary systems were fragmented into trivariant crystallization volumes for each of the available individual solid phases in the systems. The available experimental results on each of the three investigated quinary systems compose only a portion of the phase equilibria data obtained by us using the techniques of translation method. Comparison of our results with the available literature data for the two quinary Li, K//Cl, CO3, B4O7-H2O (at 0 °C) and Na, K//Cl, SO4, B4O7 - H2O (at 50 °C) systems shows agreement. © 2016 American Chemical Society.

This paper contains the description of a software-based position control for a permanent-magnet synchronous motor, implemented on a microcomputer. The aim was to implement a simple but reliable position-control strategy that does not involve the use of bulky, costly control hardware and feedback transducers. Thus the only rotor-condition sensor used is a low-resolution, incremental position encoder, that has three channels including the zero marker. Both position and velocity control loops were implemented in software, and there was the additional need to compute the absolute position, speed and direction of rotation of the rotor from the incremental encoder signals. The task of generating the control signal and speed estimation was carried out on the microcomputer, while that of processing the encoder pulses to obtain absolute position was implemented externally using a combination of counters and ROMs. © 2014 IEEE.

The paper briefly describes the analysis of the magnetic field of a Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor using a finite-element based compuder-aided design method. The technique is used to analyze performance based on various permanent magnet rotor configurations without recourse to building costly prototypes for such investigations. © 2012 IEEE.

The adoption of e-voting in different parts of the world has been generally problematic, with only few exceptions. Past studies also suggest that e-voting is embedded in the socio-politically context informing variations in the adoption patterns and nature of challenges faced during implementation. While few survey-based empirical studies have been carried out to better understand factors affecting successful adoption of e-voting, there is general paucity of ethnographic studies and analysis providing detailed insights to e-voting adoption in specific contexts. This study offers such ethnography through in-depth analysis of e-voting adoption in the 2011 Nigerian General Elections. Using a multi-level Innovation Adoption Framework as a theoretical lens, we analyze the observations made by one of the authors as a participant in the adoption and implementation of the e-voting initiative as well as the post-election reports. Results from analysis revealed core factors for the different levels of e-voting adoption constructs - socio-political context, organizations, innovation and individual. Results also identified factors and challenges that may negatively impact e-voting adoption.

Skeletal maturity assessment is important for diagnosing and monitoring growth disorders in Children and young adults. Statistical models of bone shape and appearance have been shown to be useful for estimating skeletal maturity. One critical requirement in automated skeletal maturity estimation is matching built models to unseen images of the bones of the hand. Oftentimes some form of initialization is required to prevent the model from falling into local minima. In this work we used part-based models to initialize the image of an incoming radiographic image and then fit a global Active Appearance models of the whole hand using the found points from the Part based models as 'weighted' constraints. Having found the approximate positions of the bones of the hands we then fit local models to refine the model fit. By analysing performance on dataset of 94 digitized images of normal children we achieved a model fitting accuracy of an overall point to point median error of 0.7mm. © 2015 IEEE.
