The case for a new direction in Delta State by Joachim MacEbong

The 2015 election cycle in Nigeria takes place within the context of reduced oil revenues, due to the drop in global oil prices. Since the middle of 2010, crude oil has sold for an average of over $100 a barrel, leading to a boom in revenues for countries dependent on oil for much of their spending. But by June last year, the price of oil has been cut in half, and countries are feeling the pinch. 
Nigeria is no different. The allocations from FAAC for December 2014 was the lowest for that day, and is set to go even lower in the coming months, as oil prices remain low. This poses serious challenges for states who have to provide infrastructure for development, and also pay those employed in the state civil service, while being very dependent on federal allocations.
