Abstract

The researcher examined the effects of oil exploration in the Niger Delta. The study relied
on desk survey of relevant journals, official gazette of government agencies and reports of
committees of inquiries on the Niger Delta. The findings of the study revealed that the
activities of oil companies operating in the region have devastating effects on the people
and their sources of livelihood. They, therefore, resort to what the study described as
“aggressive survival strategies. Based on the foregoing, it was recommended that the
government, interventionist agencies and the oil companies should make concerted efforts
to fulfil the expectations of the people.
