High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! ShorttitleaThe genesis of the NDDC is largely a response to the demands of the population of the Niger Delta, a populous area inhabited by a diversity of minority ethnic groups. During the 1990s these ethnic groups, most notably the Ijaw and the Ogoni established organisations to confront the Nigerian government and multinational oil companies like Shell. The minorities of the Niger Delta have continued to agitate and articulate demands for greater autonomy and control of the area's petroleum resources. Their grievances are justified by the extensive environmental degradation and pollution from oil activities that have operated in the region since the late 1950s. However, the minority communities of oil producing areas have received little or no currency from the multi-billion dollar a year industry which lines of the pockets of foreign multinationals and corrupt government officials; environmental remediation measures are limited and negligible. The region is highly underdeveloped and is one poor even by Nigeria's low standards for quality of life.
