6/9, Friday roundup

(I'm overloading the blog, so I'm going to start roundups to keep things more streamlined. There's a lot to cover on Nigeria. I'll post "long" when it's necessary.)
  • The credit ratings agency Fitch now says that the oil majors could indeed suffer from continued violence in the Niger Delta. Royal Dutch Shell was singled out.
  • A critical Canadian look at the truly high cost paid by Nigerians (and many other Africans) for our still-cheap oil.
  • The upcoming presidential election puts Nigeria on the edge of civil war, according to ISN's Security Watch.
  • For those of you who live in DC, WETA plans to air a documentary on six gay people in Nigeria called "The Nigerian Closet." It airs June 25 at 6:30 pm.
