Nigerian Oil: Blending Indigenous Roots and International Ambitions

What makes a firm essentially Nigerian? Certainly not where it operates, but rather its people. Who founded it, who directs its day-to-day management and longer-term strategic direction.

In Nigeria ‘corruption' has so many forms, so many connotations and occurs in so many settings that it has become a loaded and vague term. At its most benign, it greases the wheels of a transaction, gets you in the room, bumps you to the front of the line. At its most malign, it undermines the fab ...
