Oil of Poverty in the Niger Delta Report
This book is as a result of the debate on the lack of transparency and accountability in the management of oil revenue on the part of government and multinational oil firms which are the root causes of conflicts, poverty and environmental degradation in the Niger Delta. The book is the result of a study on the management of oil revenue in the Niger Delta, which was carried out by the African Network for Environment and Economic Justice (ANEEJ), with support from the Heinrich Boell foundation in Berlin through the Nigeria country office.
The book contributes significantly to the on-going debates on whether oil is a curse or blessing in the Niger Delta Region of Nigeria. Hence, its publication is a welcome development.
