AbstractSince the discovery of oil in 1956 at Oloibiri Rivers State Nigeria till date, Nigeria has been characterized by unending conflicts in the Niger Delta disrupting public peace which stands to put the country as a failing state. This research work was conducted to determine strategies in arresting this upsurge of conflict in the Niger Delta. There were five research questions and four hypotheses in the work. Related literatures were reviewed in the area of the meaning and nature of good governance, causes and strategies of insurgency in Nigeria and the survey tool of questionnaire was used in obtaining information from the respondents. Simple percentage was used to analyze data and same was used to test hypothesis. Among the major findings that corruption, government's double-stands, arms proliferation and regional courses, illiteracy and poverty were the major causes of insurgency in Nigeria. The researcher recommended that a clearer system of inclusive, accountable and transparent system which are tenets of Good Governance be adopted, as a better option for a lasting solution to the Niger Delta Crisis.
