UGWU Angela Nkechi


This study examined the issues in corporate social responsibility practices in oil-producing communities through a descriptive survey of oil-producing communities in three Local Government Areas in Rivers State. Corporate social responsibilities of companies to their host communities were identified, the extent to which communities benefitted from the social responsibility were ascertained and the issues arising in the implementation of the social responsibility examined. The findings showed that community’s representatives mismanaged funds meant for community projects, the youths vandalized oil pipelines and indulged in crimes among others. Based on the findings, the author recommended community education as a viable tool to address the issues raised.
