Three Experts Expose How Restiveness Has Affected the Region

Christopher N. Ekong, Ph.D, Ettah B. Essien, Ph.D. & Kenneth U. Onye's "The Economics of Youth Restiveness in the Niger Delta"

The book is so insightful, no doubt in part because the authors were born and raised in the region. They know of these experiences first hand.

This economics text is certainly not boring! Youth Restiveness in the Niger Delta has led to kidnapping, hostage taking, and other crimes committed in the region that have resulted in terrible world press and a monumental loss of revenue for Nigeria.

The Niger Delta Region of Nigeria has been thrust into international prominence because of its rich natural resources, including oil and gas, which have played a large part in discussions about the region and its sustainable environment. The book explores the general background of Nigeria’s oil and gas resource infrastructure, as well as their effects on the Nigerian economy.

The book discusses in detail the resources of the region, including its renewable and non-renewable ones. The root causes of youth restiveness are also discussed, and the authors believe there are some benefits deriving from restiveness. These include closing the income inequality gap in the region and improvements in Nigeria’s socio-economics.

About the Authors: Christopher N. Ekong, Ph.D., Ettah B. Essien, Ph.D. and Kenneth U. Onye were born in the Niger Delta Region, gained part of their higher education in the region, and currently teach at the University of Uyo there. The Niger Delta Region is the most petroleum resource-rich part of Nigeria.
