Poverty persists in oil-rich Niger Delta

Locals from President Jonathan's home region hoped his election would help their situation, but little has changed.

    The Niger Delta is where almost all of Nigeria’s oil comes from, but the region remains one of the poorest in the country.

    President Goodluck Jonathan hails from the region, and when he was elected, many people hoped their lives would improve. However, little has changed.
