Youth Restiveness and Industrial Disruption in the Niger Delta

Abstract

We examine the incidence of youth restiveness in the Niger Delta and how this restiveness has affected industrial productivity. It is our opinion that the high rate of unemployment, environmental degradation, dislocation of the traditional economy and unfair revenue allocation are some of the factors that have given rise to youth restiveness in the Niger Delta. Government needs to pay special attention to the developmental needs of the Niger Delta through job creation and the enactment of environmentally friendly policies that will preserve its fragile ecology.
