    ANTI-DUMPING REGULATIONS AND PRACTICE IN NIGERIA (2022) by Violet Omon Aigbokhaevbo

    4,000.00

    This book is an attempt to examine the WTO/GATT anti-dumping regulations within the ambit of the peculiar developmental circumstances of developing countries with Nigeria in perspective. A combination of descriptive analysis and deductions are utilised with reference to the Nigerian experience, as a developing country seeking relevance in the global trading system where non-conforming states are regarded as pariahs. The non-availability of industries to cater for the needs of their populaces has rendered these countries viable global dumping grounds for fake, substandard and adulterated products. The conclusion here is that as far as developing countries are concerned, anti-dumping regulations as provided by GATT in Nigeria are akin to providing shoes for a man with no feet. Their salvation lies in a concerted effort to provide a panacea for their various economic woes which have defied autochthonous remedies.

    ANTI-MONEY LAUNDERING AND COUNTER-TERRORISM FINANCING LAW AND PRACTICE IN NIGERIA (2015) by Ibrahim Abdul Abubakar

    2,500.00

    The international community has witnessed the use of increasingly sophisticated methods to move illicit funds through the financial systems across the globe, some of which are used to finance terrorism. The continued abuse of some off-shore financial centres and the proliferation of internet banking have further increased the need for more effective detection and checks on money laundering and terrorist-financing schemes. Left unchecked, some perpetrators expand their criminal pursuits, fostering such illegal activities as corruption, drug trafficking, human trafficking, arms trafficking, smuggling and terrorism.

    The book focuses on, among other related matters, the relative effectiveness of Nigerian laws in curbing money laundering and terrorist financing, as well as the extent of compliance with international legal standards for combating money laundering and terrorist financing, including creating a legislative and enforcement framework for the implementation of international instruments for combating both menaces. The general conclusion is, in spite of the efforts, much is still left to be done.

    CIVIL LITIGATION IN NIGERIA: A Quick Reference Guide to Practice and Procedure (2018) by Ibrahim Abdullahi

    2,500.00

    A Quick Reference Guide to Practice and Procedure

    by Ibrahim Abdullahi

    This book highlights in a most condensed form judicial pronouncements by the superior courts of records as they relate to practice and procedures in civil litigation in Nigeria. Judicial pronouncements on civil aspects of the law in Nigeria are on the increase, rendering brief-writing more challenging, if not herculean, in the absence of a resource guide for the citation of authorities and knowing which changes have taken place in the law. For lawyers not to be taken by surprise in courts when issues relating to practice and procedures are raised without notice, makes the need to have a resource book that should serve as a quick guide the more compelling. This book is thus intended to be a reference guide.
