Lack of accountability, corporate-stakeholder conflict and engagement silos require more participatory leadership than ever. In Nigeria’s fragile state, issues of restricted discursive space have become more problematic as governmental functions are in retreat given failure of institutions to engender pluralistic and collegial form of leadership that will factor in views of the interests and voice of all stakeholders in the leadership process. As this developmental paper will argue, a pluralistic leadership mediated by new media’s democratic credential proposes common leadership reality for cordial-stakeholders relations in the oil and gas region. This study will adopt a semi-structured interview in which 15 stakeholders will be interviewed regarding the effect of new media on pluralistic leadership. Data collected will be analysed qualitatively by using Critical Discourse Analytical (CDA) method.
