Nigeria, is a sovereign member of the international community with full competence to enter into legally binding multilateral and bilateral obligations having been admitted as the 99th member of the United Nations on the 7th of October, 1960.      

As a nation, Nigeria has signed on to several multilateral agreements at the global and regional levels. Nigeria has also, over the years, entered into several bilateral agreements or reciprocal covenants with individual nations, select nations as well as internationa or regional bodies.

This corner of LawNigeria.Com is an attempt to provide access to the legal instruments which outline Nigeria's international obligations. Here, for convenience sake, they have been divided into global multilateral treaties, African/regional mulitlateral treaties - including those entered with fellow West African Countries - and bilateral treaties entered into with single national or international/regional entities.

Some national legislations of Nigeria also affect Nigeria's treaty making powers or the recognition or enforcement of specific or select treaties or international custom or conventions in Nigeria. Some of those legislations include:

1. Treaties (Making Procedure, Etc.) Act;

2. International Financial Organisations Act;

3. Consular Conventions Act; and

4. International Center for Settlement of Investment Disputes Act.

Some other legislations also exist which guide international relations between the government of Nigeria and local or international legal persons seeking to transact with the country or enforce certain rights. While these may not be treaty provisions, they also form part of the rules which define Nigeria's standing as a member of the international comity of nations. These rules are found in a broad range of legislations including those regulating commercial, family, and criminal law proceedings.
