Abstract

Oil is the highest contributor to the growth and development of the Nigerian economy. However the attendant pollution of the environment and the subsequent erosion of the means of livelihood of oil producing communities are anti sustainable development. This paper examines the problems of oil spillage, its implication for ecosystem, and calls for the design of appropriate policies to sustain environmental protection and the economic growth and development of oil producing communities.
