Abstract

The nature of production and distribution in post- colonial Nigeria have given rise to severe
inter and intra eth no-regional conflicts in Nigeria.Since the end of cold war, conflict between
the oil producing communities and petro-dollar businesses became intensive such that
Nigerian state is listed among the most unsafe environment for business in Africa as the
Niger Delta region metamorphosized into a deadly war zone. This paper examines how
President Yar’adua’s Amnesty programme in Niger Delta contributed in the peace making
process in the region. We employed intractable conflict theory as our framework of analysis.
We argued that the administration of President Umar Musa Yar’adua appears to appreciate
the huge lost to Nigeria arising from such black listing and consequently announced the
Amnesty Programme for militants in the region on 24th June 2009. We read meaning from
second hand information obtained from books, journals, newspapers, magazines and
conference paper dealing on national security and amnesty programme in the Niger Delta.
Keywords: National Security, Amnesty, Peacemaking, Peacekeeping and intractable
