Abstract

Pioneer efforts and early scientific and popular writings on the environment support genuine ecological concerns on the need for a clean and healthy environment. A clean environment supports good health, and good health is very important for vibrant workforce, which is necessary for a productive economy. This logical connection, in the final analysis, seems to encourage a healthy and vibrant political atmosphere. In Nigeria, the oil boom in the early 1970s led to a major boost in industrialization and the subsequent environmental pollution and the attendant undercurrent political implications. In the light of the above, the chapter investigates the environmental problems in Nigeria and the inherent political dynamics that propel and shape the calls for a cleaner environment. The authors rely on archival materials and other secondary sources of data including the library documentations and internet to query and theoretically explain the extant issues. The relevant recommendations are made on the urgent need to ameliorate the unpalatable condition and for cleaner environment.
