Abstract:

In recent years, rising oil prices have boosted state and local government revenues in Rivers State, the heart of Nigeria's Niger Delta oil industry, to unprecedented levels. However, the residents of Rivers State have seen appalingly little benefit from this windfall. In large part, this is because officials in many of the state's 23 local governments have squandered their share of rising revenues on discretionary funds spent to no obvious purpose and on white elephant or even non-existent projects. At the same time, the fundamental needs of their constituents, symbolized by clinics without basic medicines and crumbling schoolhouses without textbooks, go ignored.

Recommendations -- Methodology -- Background and context: Oil, poverty and governance in Nigeria -- Local government corruption and mismanagement in River State: an overview -- Impact of local government corruption and mismanagement on primary education and primary health care in Rivers State -- Roots of local-level corruption in Rivers State -- Nigeria's obligation under international law -- Nigerian government efforts to fight corruption -- International efforts to promote transparency and fight corruption.
