Overview of Nigeria
Nigeria has a population of about 154 million, with the largest country in Africa and accounts for 47 percent of West Africa’s population. It is also the biggest oil exporter in Africa, with the largest natural gas reserves in the continent. With these large reserves of human and natural resources, Nigeria is poised to build a prosperous economy, reduce poverty significantly, and provide the health, education and infrastructure services to its population needs.
Nigeria was among the first countries to adopt and implement the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) to improve governance and oil sector. A multi-donor trust fund supported the commissioning and publication of in-depth financial, process and physical audits of the Nigeria petroleum sector revenues from 1999 to 2005 which placed comprehensive financial information about the petroleum sector revenues in the public domain for the first time. By integrating civil society and media in NEITI, public awareness and engagement in Oil and Gas (O&G) sector governance and management was enhanced. The Bank and the multi-donor trust fund also supported the legal framework for the extractive revenues transparency (one of only two globally) with the signing of the NEITI Act in 2008.
