My thesis examines the impact of Nigeria's policy shift towards a private-sector driven economy on the development of one of its natural resources (bitumen). It examines how the country's post-1999 neo-liberal economic reforms currently impact the state of non-exploration of the resource and how it continues to play a vital role in the non-exploration of the resource.
