Abstract

One of the problems that confronts Africans and their rulers, leaders, is the issue of injustice. Basically in Africa, the reality is that, we are still groping for and wrestling with the problem of fashioning an appropriate social system. The difficulty perhaps lies in the fact that the failed systems are products of disharmonized and crisis ridden individuals who lack justice in their internal systems. The Niger Delta problem is a fall out of this injustice, the presence of an overriding power philosophy, and the lack of an existential justice. This paper submits that this wrong philosophy can be overcome by introducing existential justice, Jean Paul Sartre existentialism, provides a framework for explaining the Niger Delta puzzle and more significantly provides a medium through which the issue can be resolved amicably and justifiably too, is the thrust of this paper
