    it is really a statement of fact that there is more to be done to protect indigenous contractors against bad bele syndrome by the Nigerians themselves working in the oil and gas multi national. currently, there is case of victimization of local contractor MACOBARB INTERNATIONAL LIMITED by some staffs of NLNG in breach of the contract duly executed by parties. the Local Content Act is really on trial come tomorrow at the House Committee on Local Content, National Assembly. i can see that the Act never really made specific provisions to take care of oppression of local contractors by Nigerians working in these oil and gas multi nationals. in fact, it is these set of Nigerians with inferiority complex and belief in supremacy of whites that constitute major challenges in the implementation of the Act. may God save Nigeria from tribalism and ethnicity as if you are not from a particular section of the country, you may not be treated well.
