Nigeria is an internationally recognized sovereign nation made up of 36 states and a Federal Capital Territory, Abuja. Each of those 36 states is empowered by Nigeria’s Constitution to establish and maintain a legal system that would assure justice within the assigned territory so as to enable every citizen and other persons resident in it carry on their legitimate everyday pursuits. Together, the Constitution, the individual legal system of Nigeria’s 36 States,- coupled with laws made by the Federal Legislature for the entire nation or for the Federal Capital Territory as well as Nigeria’s treaty obligations, make up the Nigerian legal complex. As a legal complex with varying legal standards, the Constitution provides the ultimate principles, rules and doctrines from which the legitimacy and hierarchy of all other legal norms in Nigeria are validated. MORE
