Abstract:The contributions to this collective volume on Nigerian property law, and in particular the Nigerian Land Use Act, demonstrate that, after almost four decades of being in operation, the Land Use Act remains the subject of controversy. The contributors have areas of concensus, but also varying opinions on the policy and principles of the Land Use Act. Titles of the chapters: Concept and conception of property in law: the link with shelter in Nigeria (Nwudego Nkemakonam Chinwuba); Compulsory acquisition without compensation under Nigerian law (R.A. Onuoha); Survey plan In land transactions: an overview (Kola Odeku and Olu Awolowo); The Land Use Act - a catholic legislation? (A. Umezulike); Administration of consent provision under the Land Use Act: a curse or blessing for development - case study of Lagos State (Muiz Banire); Repeal Land Use Act 1978 or amendment of its provisions governing compensation for compulsory acquisition? (Uche Jack-Osimire); Constitutionality of an unconstitutional act: the unconstitutional entrenchment of the Land Use Act in the Nigerian Constitution (Wole Olanipekun); The Land Use Act and effěcacy of the certificate of occupancy (Imran Oluwole Smith); Underbelly of the Land Use Act: activating the wealth of the people (Amos Agbe Utuama); Can the Land Use Act and the Nigerian Urban and Regional Planning Act contain or reverse the impact of climate change in Nigeria? (Theresa Ilegbunein). The volume is dedicated to Professor of property law, Jelili Adebisi Omotola (1941-2006). [ASC Leiden abstract]
