  • RO Ezeuko

Communication is one thing. Effective communication is another. Specifically, for one to express an idea in speech or writing is one thing and expressing it as it is in one’s mind is another thing. Furthermore, receiving the idea through listening or reading is one thing while understanding it, as it is intended, to be able to make an adequate and appropriate response is another thing. This paper, by a simple study instrument, argues that the political, religious, economic, medical and educational problems in the country are a function of ineffective communication. It however makes recommendations for how to reduce it.
