Nigerian Oil Crisis

Where Does Our Fuel Come From??? By: Justin

The Main Problem of the Nigerian Oil Crisis.

We use oil all the time, heating our houses, fuel for cars etc. But where does that come from? A lot of it comes from Nigeria, Nigeria is the United States fifth largest supplier of oil. So we pay money to Nigeria for our oil. Now where is that money going? Now, we have found ourselves a problem. The entire country is going crazy because these people are exporting oil but not getting the money, its going to the government. This problem has caused 6,000 oil spills and counting. There is a group called ¨Mends¨ who is trying to protect the oil, but they are not that effective. Nigeria is slowly losing their oil which means no source of income, so more families hungry and more people living in poverty. This is a crisis.
