The data&nbsp;were collected&nbsp;through interviews from the local people and documents. The document -‘Yegurage&nbsp;Wemaka’&nbsp;from which fourteen riddles&nbsp;were collected&nbsp;for analysis&nbsp;was the primary data gathering tool for the study. A purposive sampling technique was employed to choose the informants and the document which clearly&nbsp;contains&nbsp;Gurage riddles. The collected riddles&nbsp;were clustered&nbsp;according to their theme and grammatically founded meaning, and they&nbsp;are transcribed&nbsp;into alphabetic script since they were in Ethiopic scripts. Then, the pragmatic roles of the collected data&nbsp;were analyzed&nbsp;qualitatively from the perspectives of Relevance theory hence, the study focused on the interpretive aspects of riddles. The finding showed that pragmatically Gurage riddles play a great role to promote the culture of ‘Enset’ as the main source of food and its production, to introduce the materials that&nbsp;are used&nbsp;in their&nbsp;day to day&nbsp;life and way of house building (folk materials), to promote Gurage people’s transportation system and infrastructures, to show as the coffee ceremony is the main social coexistence, to promote the culture of Gurage people agriculture, death, and destruction. Finally, it also found out that&nbsp;context and cultural knowledge play a major in interpreting and understanding Gurage riddles.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> 2020-12-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Shashetu Bayu Tizazu, Kamil Nuredin Awol, SettingsYibeltal Tadele Lessons from Themes in Professor Johnbull Nigerian Television Drama Season – 4 Episode 9 (Street School) Towards Curtailing Child Abuse in African Societies 2020-12-30T07:22:03+00:00 Akintoye Festus Ayodimeji Dr. Otunla Adekunle Olusola <p>Television is a medium through which society is well informed about social reform, social re-engineering and social orientation because of the tenacious relevance of its audio-visual influence on the viewers. What people think about nearly every issue be it politics, religion, government, fashion, culture, is almost exclusively influenced by television. Thus, this study examines lessons on re-orientation of the African Society towards curtailing Child Abuse from themes in Professor Johnbull Television Drama, Season 4-Episode nine (Street School). The study identifies various themes of child abuse in the television drama episode using qualitative research approach of textual content analysis through Video preview and review of themes in Prof. Johnbull Television Drama. The study applied the social cognitive theory as well as framing theory. Data were gathered using a researcher –designed instrument named “Video Content Analysis Checklist on Social Orientation and Themes and Framings (VCACSOTF)”. Findings from the study revealed that vulnerable children suffer maltreatment such as: Sexual abuse, forced child labour in form of street trading/hawking and child trafficking which is a major setback to the realization of child right act on education in Africa. It recommends that similar Television series and programmes should be produced, identified and sponsored regularly on African Television networks such that social orientation against all forms of child abuse could be spread through various broadcast media just as it is being propagated in Professor Johnbull TV drama episode titled ‘Street School’. Further, government in Africa should assist in giving scholarships to indigent and vulnerable street children and that those who participate in child abuse be prosecuted.</p> 2020-12-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Akintoye Festus Ayodimeji, Dr. Otunla Adekunle Olusola
