Overview

The Economics of Youth Restiveness in the Niger Delta outlines the important issue of restiveness, which has led to kidnapping, hostage taking, and other crimes perpetuated in the region that have resulted in a monumental loss of revenue for Nigeria.

This economics text book is certainly not boring! The Niger Delta Region of Nigeria has recently come under intense and careful scrutiny and discussion internationally. The region's rich natural resource endowments, including oil and gas, have played a large part of the discussions about the region and its sustainable environment. The text explores the general background of Nigeria's oil and gas resource infrastructure as well as the effects these are having on the Nigerian economy.

The book discusses in detail the resources of the region, including renewable and non-renewable ones. The root causes of youth restiveness are also discussed. Judging from a practical view of events that led to restiveness in the region, the book's analyses submits that there were some benefits deriving from restiveness: The closing of income inequality gap in the region and improvements in socio-economic statistics are of significant importance to note.

Christopher N. Ekong, Ph.D., Ettah B. Essien, Ph.D., & 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.
