The research study is designed to analyze social responsibility performance of organizations in Nigeria, especially Elf Petroleum Nigeria Limited. Businesses do not operate in a vacuum rather it operates on land inhabited by people. Therefore, for the business to survive it must liaise with its host communities. We took a holistic view of social responsibility programmes; exposed problems encountered and made suggestion the way to improve. To achieve our objective, seventy (70) copies of the research questionnaire were contributed to the staff of Elf Petroleum Nigeria Limited and members of the host communities. This was supplemented with an oral interview to enrich our work. Data were presented in tables' frequencies and simple percentages. We established in this work that the ever sought cordial relationship and peace will come if the company lives up to its expectations with regards to the issue of social responsibility as advanced in their corporate policies.
