Resource Control Agitations and Political Stability in Nigeria
This treatise is borne out of the desire to make a modest contribution to the quest for political stability in Nigeria. It analyses the role of resource control agitations and its implication on Nigerian federalism, while the south-south serves as a case study.
It provides a background with an introduction in chapter one and an account of the evolution of revenue allocation of the country in chapter two and subsequently takes a critical look at the contending perspectives on resource control agitation particularly as a framework in chapter three. Chapter four is an analysis of the broad areas for harmonization within federalism while chapter five focuses on summary and recommendations.
