Event Overview

Background and Rationale
Niger Delta Region has continued to be the resource base of the Nigeria contributing a lot to the development. However, the oil resources being extracted from the region has not been effectively harnessed for the development of the region and the country as a whole. Elsewhere like Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Russia, Singapore, Indonesia and UAE amongst others, income from the sector has been optimally used to achieve economic diversification and all-inclusive development. Unfortunately, in our country instead of using income from oil and other sources to develop the infrastructural facilities, Industrialize and diversify the economy and promote shared prosperity, critics says over the years, the proceeds have been misused and squandered. Hence we are yet to achieve the requisite level of development.

Successive governments came up with different programmes and projects to raise the fortune of Niger Delta and Nigerians, so as to ensure the oil wealth is working and impacting on the lives of average citizens. Despites the efforts no optimal results have been attained. This was among the key reasons for resource nationalism and activism in the region, which were at some point in time hijacked and led to more problems than solutions. Hence this led to disruption of economic activities including oil extraction business thereby affecting the capacity of Nigeria to meet its production quota.

But since the creation of Amnesty Programme along with its empowerment and human development packages by President Yar’Adua, the level of stability has improved. Though periodically crises do happen, hence the stability tends to be relative. Despite the challenges some milestones have been attained but there are lot to be achieved. It is based on this amongst other reasons that President Buhari’s Administration pays a high premium to the development of the region, in line with his campaign promises. Examples of his passion towards development of the region include the Oogoni Clean-up programme, overhaul of NNDC, massive infrastructural development, consolidation of amnesty programme and diversification amongst others.
