This article examines the relevance of corporate citizenship by multinational oil corporations in the Niger Della region, the third largest wetlands in the world. It underlines the common problem faced by many multi-ethnic, middle income developing countries, whose successful resolution could provide the basis for the attainment of good governance, conflict prevention, human rights and sustainable management of natural resources. It argues that beyond playing their part in meeting their commitment to government, these multinationals also owe an even greater obligation to society, an obligation of responsibility.
