History of Niger Delta Development Commission

The Niger Delta Development Commission was established by then Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo in 2000 with its sole mandate being the development of the oil-rich by hitherto impoverished Niger Delta region of Nigeria. Many Niger Delta Ethnic groups most notably the Ijaw and Ogoni had during the late 1990s increased awareness to their agitation for a better lot in revenue allocation as well as a specific government policy for the development of their lands, which had for decades served as the goldmine financing the Nigerian economy. They had complained of among other things, the low standard of living and environmental degradation being experienced as a result of carelessness in the operation of various oil multinationals.
