  • This article examines the impact of British colonial rule on land tenure in Esan (Anglicized Ishan), the second major ethnic group in Edo State of Nigeria. Land was very important to the social, political and economic wellbeing of Esan, just like other societies the world over. It was regarded as collective property which everyone could utilize for agriculture and building of houses. Although land was regarded as collective property, individuals owned the plots which they either inherited or acquired. The laid down methods of acquisition and utilization eliminated land disputes throughout the pre-colonial period of Esan history. By the first decade of the twentieth century, Esan and elsewhere in what is today Nigeria, found themselves under British colonial domination. The British colon...

  • This paper aims at assessing the weakness of Nigeria in efficaciously dealing with the menace of climate change within the country. The researchers examined how the campaigns against climate change has been embraced in the Real Estate Development Practices in Nigeria. Various surveys were conducted on deforestation, gas flaring, planning adaptations to climate change in selected housing estates, preservation of forests and the use of badly smoking vehicles on city roads. Campaigns and policy statements to reduce the adverse effects of climate change are made but not implemented. The TPAs and CDAs were blamed for inefficiency in monitoring and supervision of real estate developments at the various housing Estates surveyed. Deforestation in the Northern Nigeria was attributed to Poverty a...

  • The effect of climate change is felt everywhere and of concern to all around the world, even as solution is not in sight to it. The consequences have been felt more in some parts of the globe than others. Incidentally, this has weighed more on the under-developed nations of the world than the developed. Climate change is prevalent everywhere in Nigeria from the north where it has aggravated desert encroachment on the savannah belt, to the south where it has engendered ocean surge in the coastal areas, erosion in many other parts. These have resulted in colossal loss of lives and damage to properties. The government has been virtually helpless, or comatose, with an array of legislations which are best described as beautiful charters on the country's law books. This paper will examine som...

  • Since no country is isolated in international politics and bearing in mind the symbolic nature of most terrorist acts, what are the possibilities of such attacks on Nigeria's food supply and what are the emergency response capabilities of the country in such occurrences. The geopolitics of Nigeria and her status as the most populous black nation in the world as well as the inherent religious intolerance in her domestic politics in particular the Maitasina riot, Bokoharam disturbances and Talakuta riot are all pointers to the precarious position of the country on the terrorist drawing board. This work analyzes the possibilities of food terrorism in Nigeria. It examines the factors that heighten the susceptibility of the country to such attacks and evaluates the country's emergency respon...

  • It is common for parents/families in traditional settings, whether in Africa or China, to pair their children/members in marriage often without their consent. This specific mate selection practice, arrangement, is used to designate marriages in these settings: the so-called arranged marriages. Observations about this mate selection practice are then posited as conclusive evidence of change in these marriages. This paper attempts an exploratory clarification of marriages in traditional Africa in two ways. First, it uses the marriage system of the Okrikans to reveal that arranged and non-arranged marriages coexist, each administered by and organized around distinct institutions, with differing consequences for family membership, inheritance and other important issues. Second, it breaks do...

  • The focus of this paper is to highlight the irregularities inherent in the Nigerian Federalism right from the time of its formation that have made it extremely difficult to function properly. Nigeria's Federalism is a classical case of federalism from above. It was a direct British imposition. Unfortunately, some of the most outstanding political leaders involved in the independence struggle, representing their ethnic groups, were against it. Also, the various ethnic groups in Nigeria represent different stages of culture and possess some deep rooted cultural differences as well as sentiments which make it an uphill task to perceive things from the same angle. In fact, there seems to be some kind of stiff competition among them. Resultantly, it will be natural to allow them or even enco...

  • The idea of immunity from legal process is, as a general rule, abhorrent to modem legal civilization. The origin of this class of immunity traces back to the era of absolute monarchs, when it was believed that a king could do no wrong, thus the term sovereign immunity, of which the expression 'executive immunity' is a derivative. This paper examines, albeit briefly, the constitutional immunity from prosecution conferred on certain political office holders in Nigeria. The order of progression of this paper shall be an examination of the concept of immunity followed by its uses and abuses in Nigeria, some arguments for and against its retention in the Constitution, comparative analysis of the position in a few other countries, a brief consideration of the rule of law and finally some reco...

  • Administrative justice is generally seen as a component of good governance. While the former has developed in Nigeria largely through the Common Law, the latter is a relatively emerging ideal that has eluded public administration in Nigeria. For decades, corruption and maladministration have become the central problems facing the country. The people have suffered and are still suffering from the consequences of poor governance. This article examines administrative justice as an element of good governance in Nigeria. It demonstrates that the problems are the results of misuse of administrative discretion at all levels of government and the lack of sufficient accountability mechanisms. Although efforts have been made to address these problems through legal and intitutional reforms, howeve...
