Volume 4, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 1998-2054


With the declaration of Amnesty programme in Niger Delta in 2009, political discourse has been ongoing on the way forward toward sustainable peace in the region. Discourse has centred on the re-integration of militants and equipping them with various skills and training programmes. Nonetheless, it has been observed that the discourse (text or talk) has not been particularly inclusive. For instance, women's involvement hardly features in the post conflict discourse. Thus, this paper seeks to examine the nature of the present political discourse in post conflict Niger Delta, by attempting to answer the following questions: is political discourse degendering the problem in the present peace process? What then are the implications of degendering the problem of Niger Delta in post conflict discourse?
