Oil is a non-renewable energy resource. Oloibiri (Bayelsa State), where the first oil well was discovered in 1965, challenges Nigeria to attend to the matter of diversifying the economy quickly. All that remains of Oloibiri today is the capped, emptied well, a reminder of the worse future that awaits everyone. Oloibiri is abandoned to its fate – Nigeria will be too, when it is finally over. It is a matter of time, but the warnings are clear enough. Nigeria is replete with many different natural resources, so that there should be no problems exploiting them for the growth of the economy.
