Abstract


The Niger Delta area is plagued with the lack of peace and security, ranging from the environment to lives and properties. This is associated with bad governance in the area. This in turn has led to various conflicts and insecurity in the area and the attendant response of government and concerned stakeholders by the establishment of institutional measures at various times that aggravated situations based on the unattended good governance requirements for peace and security. This paper is done with the use of secondary source of data and anchored on qualitative analysis in the examination of issues involved in good governance as a panacea for peace and security in the Niger Delta. The paper reveals that there are issues of resource control, participation in the oil and gas economy, transparency and accountability of oil revenue utilization, infrastructures, poverty eradication, unemployment, and Security. We recommend that the government at all levels and stakeholders should turn over a new leaf for good governance in addressing issues in the Niger Delta so that peace and security can be enthroned in the area.

Keywords: Good governance, Peace, Security, Niger Delta, Nigeria.
