ABSTRACT
Due to the failings of the regulatory framework in the oil and gas sector in Nigeria, Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) tend to act as watchdogs over the activities of government. This article focuses on the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), which has been localized in the oil and gas sector and domesticated as a law in Nigeria. The article highlights the roles of CSOs in the initiative.
