Some commentators also identify a culture of negative work ethic as an issue 19. Teboho Moja, Nigeria Education Sector Analysis: An Analytical Synthesis of Performance and Main issues (World Bank, 2000). Nigeria: The Story of an Ailing African Oil Giant Case Study | 2 33 facing the country with poor discipline rife and insufficient development of the behaviours and attitudes that are expected in the workplace. A study undertaken by Volker Treichel, Lead Economist at the World Bank, set out the challenges that faced Nigeria during the later part of the 2000s in relation to skills and workforce development.

With the government increasingly relying on oil revenues to fund their legislative programmes – and with corruption and deal-making an ongoing backdrop – the desire of the political class to promote Nigerian participation in the industry was tempered by a recognition that the sector needed to be run and operated by those with the right skills, experience and expertise. Having failed to invest in education and training, the country suffered a paucity of talent coming into the industry and therefore had no choice but to support the continued dominance of a largely expatriate workforce.

Something had to change. By 2000, the historic failures of successive policies had coalesced into the growth of a recognisable movement for change in relation to the promotion of local participation in Nigeria’s oil and gas sector. The continued reliance on the importing of goods and services to support economic activity coupled with ongoing systemic failures in the strategy and implementation of education and training policy had resulted in an unbalanced economy that struggled to create jobs and an oil industry that was creaking under the weight of its own economic responsibility for the country as a whole.
