Dr. Adeh's work is a rich contribution to the discourse on oil resources and the twin problems of corruption and ecological degradation in Nigeria with lessons for other sub-Saharan African countries. It is indeed a purposeful scientific work on a theme of substantial contemporary interest, both practical and theoretical.
Prof. Dr. Tesfatsion Medhanie He presents a compelling case on how to dethrone both problems of corruption and environmental degradation and enthrone a lasting sustainable development in the Niger Delta. The analysis of the problems is very objective and unbiased. A must read book for all.
