IDS Policy Briefing 203

Protests and Accountability in Nigeria’s Energy Sector

Published on 17 August 2022

Since 2016, Nigerians have experienced a stable fuel supply even if prices have continued to rise.

This supply stability came to a sudden halt in January 2022, bringing back memories of long queues and harsh living conditions witnessed since 2007. To explore the implications of this change we revisit our study on demanding power and accountability in the Nigerian energy sector. The study conducted from 2019–21 as part of the Action for Empowerment and Accountability (A4EA) research programme found a significant lack of accountability in fuel subsidy management in Nigeria.
