Theophilus Miebi GBİGBİ [1]


This study examined multinational oil firms’ contributions to farming communities in their Delta State operating areas in Nigeria. The study sample size was 176 respondents. Questionnaire was administered to collect data for the study. The data were analyzed using multiple regression, descriptive statistics and 4-point likert scale. The null hypotheses were tested using t-test. The results showed that most farmers are females, 39% of respondents fell within 41-50 years of modal class age. The high proportion (84%) is literate and the oil prospective oil multinational firms’ extension services were in touch with about 73%. The aid programs of the oil multinational firms were adequate for the farmers. The t-test indicates that farmers had increased income, productivity and farm sizes after benefiting from the oil multinational firms assistance projects. Regression results showed a statistically significant effect of 1% and 5% likelihood of farmers output in the oil multinational firms region, on farming experience, chemical expenditure, farm size, value of oil multinational firms aid, age of farmers and educational level. The results implies that oil multinational firms has made significant contributions in the study area. However, payment of compensation was inadequate which could result to unquantifiable damage. It is recommended that oil multinational firms should pay compensation to affected communities to create a conductive environment for her business transaction.
