Entries on Social Media
The essence of political public relations activities or strategies is to lobby for support. The application of political public relations strategies in party campaigns is very common and critical among political parties. The People’s Democratic party PDP and All Progressive Congress APC fully deployed these strategies in the 2015 general elections. Among the strategies was social media, courtesy call/visits, opinion poll, monitoring agencies or associations, liaising with diplomats and presidents of other countries. Donation of medical, electrical, clothing and food materials was also a common strategy
1.0 INTRODUCTION 1.1 Background to the Study Marital Satisfaction is sought or expected by most married individuals. Unfortunately, the U.S. bureau of census in 1992 reported that 52% marriages end up in divorce indicating its absence (Forwers, Montel, & Olson, 1996). This fact, alongside others, has caused an increase in research on factors influencing marital satisfaction. Marital satisfaction is often characterized by strong free-flowing communication abilities and visibly deep satisfaction as per affection, sexuality, shared time and finances (Fowers, Montel & Olson, 1996). Since the Igbos of Nigeria are mainly patriarchal, marriage is deemed an indispensable factor for the continuation of the family and line of descent. Children occupy the centre stage in Igbo marriages. Thus the first and foremost consideration is the fertility of the couple (Obi, 1970). The absence of children or a child in an Igbo family indicates a fearful end of the family or generation and as such a weak, faint or sometimes a total lack of marital satisfaction. Again, research has shown that retirement may contribute to marital satisfaction by reducing other commitments, role conflicts, and time constraints and by increasing opportunity for companionship. At this point, the level of affection for one another is also highest in older marriage (Carstensen, Gottman, & Levenson, 1995). Hence, work demands and loads when improperly managed, kick against marital satisfaction. It is evident in Nigeria that men and women have different concepts of marital satisfaction and the social support that is exchanged in the marriage. For instance, in Nigeria, males generally view marriage as an institution of lordship over the opposite sex who ought to be seen and not heard. Here, a typical Igbo married man believes that his wife is subject to his authority irrespective of her belief, opinions, feelings, and even academic background (Unamba, 2010).

We go to school to get certified so we can impact our society. Its sad however that this aim is not achieved these days. What then should be seen as the true test of knowledge; Application or still Certification? Read on then as I bare my mind on the above topic. Don't forget to inform others to do same.
No justified answer has been given to this question that has been asked for so many years in this country simply because of the “rat race” ideology of the general mass. Read more! Thank you!
