Nigeria - Niger Delta

Nigeria’s President Umaru Yar’Adua has promised to address the conflict that has shut in a fifth of Nigeria’s oil production. Yar’Adua has said he will convene the summit, originally due to take place late last year

Tensions have increased in the Niger Delta following a series of attacks on pipelines belonging largely to Royal Dutch Shell. The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta raids have renewed fears about oil supplies from Nigeria, one of the world’s top 10 crude exporters.
