Program Title: African Perspectives August 1
Description: The world has been abuzz since April when a blow out from a well started gushing millions of barrels of crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico. However, since the inception of the oil industry in Nigeria, there has been no concern and effective effort on the part of the government, let alone the oil operators, to control environmental problems associated with the industry. We spoke with Asume Osuoka about the exploitation of oil corporations in Nigeria and we also spoke with Grace Adeniyi Ogunyankin about community resistance to these oil companies, focusing especially on the organizing of women.
Host(s): Omme-Salma Rahemtullah
