Abstract:The laws regulating company operations in Nigeria and the United Kingdom from their incorporation to dissolution are the Companies and Allied Matters Act Cap C20 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria 2004 (CAMA) and the United Kingdom Companies Act 2006, together with the UK Model Articles for Public and Private Companies 2008. All internal and external transactions of the company in question must be in line with the provisions of the law. Any act carried out without recourse to CAMA will be null and void. This paper discusses in a comparative manner the legal implications of the appointment, vacation, duties and removal of directors under CAMA and the Companies Act of the United Kingdom (UK), considering the fact that Nigeria is a former colony of the UK and both operate the common law system.
