Nigerian Oil and Gas: A Mixed Blessing? is an insider’s chronicle of landmark policy events in the many incarnations of the Nigerian oil and gas industry under the administrations that we have had since before independence. Chief Michael Olorunfemi, Engineer Akin Adetunji and Mr. Ade Olaiya, strenuously committed to verifiable facts and national interests, have written a book devoid of religious, ethnic, regional, or individual biases. The book is a voluntary contribution of the authors to national discourse on the Nigerian government’s participation in the petroleum industry through the instrument of the national oil company, the NNPC.
