Multinational oil companies operating in the Niger Delta region are not left out in the troubles of the region. They are clearly part of the conspiracy in the marginalization of the region. Most of the companies are operating under the cover of the Nigerian Military, which has further exacerbated the relationship between Multinationals and their host communities.
They must do their business in a most friendly atmosphere, and not set neighbouring host communities against one another. They must perform their statutory obligations to the people of the region by promptly delivering cooperate social responsibilities to the people.”
