In conducting this survey research, 220 questionnaires were administered to respondent and 132 were correctly filled, returned and used for analysis. The Pearson’s product moment correlation coefficient(r) was used to analysed data and the test of significance at 0.05 level of freedom was used to test the proposed hypotheses. It was revealed that project abandonment has negative effect on the standard of life of living of people of Niger Delta. It leads to the commitment of more funds. It was also revealed that project abandonment discourages investment activities in Niger delta. It was therefore recommended that there should be a conscious planning of vital capital projects to avoid a situation whereby contracts are awarded because of political ambition to avoid abandonment, amongst others.
