Overview

This book - Redefining Stewardship of Land and Oil Mineral Resources in Nigeria: A theological-Ethical Response to Land Occupancy and Oil Minerals Management in a Developing Economy approaches the issues concerning the management of oil resources derived from land and mineral resources in two inter-related ways. First, by tracing theological- ethical roots of postcolonial land laws and land occupancy in Nigeria, and second,by examining its African traditional components using anecdotal tales from Niger Delta. It draws attention to the predicaments which inhabitants of the oil producing communities suffer at the hands of multinational oil prospecting, oil producing, and oil marketing companies. With both empirical and scientific data the book illustrates a principle of "Girrafe" used in most African countries for sharing communal assets and liabilities. It redefines the concept of stewardship based on an analysis of a "giraffe enecdote" encountered among the Ogba of Nigeria. The book is recommended for University professors, research students and undergraduates as well as for policy makers,estate valuers and general readers.
