NIGERIAN CONSTITUTIONAL LAW: SELECTED ISSUES (2024) by Aboaba O. Omotesho

After nearly 30 long and disastrous years of military rule in Nigeria from 1966 to 1999 (less only four wobbly years of civilian interregnum from 1979 to 1983), the culture of constitutionalism in the country has become brutally defaced, degraded and obscured. The return of constitutional government in May 1999 marked a new beginning for virtually everybody – the politicians, the legislators, the students, the academia and all. No wonder that all levels of government – Federal, State and Local – the nation has been experiencing a rattling bustle of intergovernmental disputation as to the limits of power and the dos and don’ts of governmental action… The essays are written primarily for university law students and students in other tertiary institutions studying constitutional law…The book thus serves an important need to make academic materials available to such students in these days of harrowing book scarcity in the country. But the essays will also reward reading by politicians and others, including lawyers, who may want or need to read up elements of constitutional law or to brighten their dimming knowledge of rudiments of the subject. – Professor Charles Ilegbune OON, SAN, University of Abuja, Nigeria
