A signboard campaigning for All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate Magnus Ngei Abe is seen along a road in Ogoni in Nigeria's delta region February 25, 2015. Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan's flagship reform policies -- power and farming -- have not hugely benefited the delta. Power privatisation has yet to translate to more kilowatts on the grid anywhere, while reforms to farming, especially cutting corrupt middle men out of a state fertiliser scheme, has disproportionately benefited the north, where the vast majority of agriculture happens. Even so, the mere fact the president is from the delta is enough for many to feel historic injustices are being righted. Picture taken February 25, 2015.

Suanu Baridam, secretary of the Ogoni Council of Traditional Rulers, speaks to Reuters outside his palace at Ogoniland, Nigeria's delta region August 20, 2011. An U.N. report released this month told inhabitants of Ogoniland, a region within the vast, oil-rich Niger Delta, that their environment is dangerously polluted and Royal Dutch Shell and the government are not doing enough to clean it up. The U.N. report said Ogoniland required the biggest oil clean-up in history, which could take 30 years and cost an initial $1 billion. Baridam hopes the U.N. report will build momentum that will force Shell, Nigeria's state-owned oil firm NNPC and the government into long-term action. Picture taken August 20.

Activists chant slogans against the Anglo-Dutch oil firm Royal/Dutch Shell in New Delhi November 10 during a protest march to commemorate the second anniversary of the death of Nigerian environmental campaigner Ken Saro-wiwa. The activist, who was leading a protest against Shell, was hanged along with eight of his Ogoni tribe activists by Nigeria's military police on November 10, 1995. The activists accuse Shell of not helping villagers near its oilfields and say it should have put pressure on the governnment to stop their execution.
