In Freedom of Religion and Its Regulation in Nigeria: Analysis of Preaching Board Laws in Some States of Northern Nigeria, Ahmed Salisu Garba provides an account of how states in Northern Nigeria have enacted laws to regulate religious preaching in the spheres of influence. The work examines the debates surrounding the laws and how the state in collaboration with dominant religious groups persecuted members of minority religious in the states. The author applied an argumentative approach to raise and analyse issues relating to the reasonability of the laws in Nigeria, reasons for their enactment, judicial review mechanisms employed in the determination of the reasonability of the laws in democracies, and how they accord with the freedom of religion clause in the Nigerian Constitution.

  • Preface
  • Introduction
  • The Nigerian legal system and the implementation of the Rome Statute complementarity principle
  • Complementarity under the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court
  • Inaction : adoption of implementing legislation as an aspect of complementarity
  • Unwillingness : shielding from criminal responsibility I
  • Unwillingness : shielding from criminal responsibility II
  • Unwillingness : independence and impartiality of the prosecuting authority and the judiciary
  • Inability : the need for witness protection, extradition arrangement and delegation of criminal jurisdiction to other states
  • Conclusion and recommendations.
If Nigeria fails to prosecute the crimes recognised under the Rome Statute, then the International Criminal Court (ICC) will intervene. The ICC is only expected to complement the criminal justice system in Nigeria and is not a court of first instance, but one of last resort. This is what is known as the principle of complementarity. Before the ICC can step in, it must make a finding of `unwillingness' or `inability' on the part of Nigeria. It is only after this finding is made that the ICC can take over the prosecution of the crimes recognised under the Statute from Nigeria. This book examines the criminal justice process in Nigeria and discovers that the justice system is latent with the requirements of `unwillingness' and `inability.' The requirements, which serve as tests for assessment, are as they are laid down by the Rome Statute and interpreted by the ICC. This book offers recommendations as to what Nigeria must do in order to avoid the ICC intervention by reversing those parameters that give rise to `unwillingness' and `inability.' The International Criminal Court and Nigeria: Implementing the Complementarity Principle of the Rome Statute offers a contribution to the advancement of international law and will be of practical use to African countries. It aims to sensitise policy makers in different African countries in respect of policy options open to them to close impunity gap in their respective countries. This volume addresses the topics with regard to international criminal law and comparative public law and will be of interest to researchers, academics, organizations, and students in the fields of international law, governance, and comparative criminal justice.

  • Introduction
  • A theoretical overview of democracy
  • A theoretical overview of globalization
  • Political activism in Nigeria : historical perspectives and current challenges
  • Federalism and national integration
  • Human rights law, civil society organizations and transnational law
  • The impacts of globalization on the Nigerian system
  • Judicial activism and democratic governance in Nigeria
  • Resistance and reformations in the Nigerian system
  • Conclusion and recommendations.
This book contributes to the discourse on post-colonial and globalization theories, focusing on Nigeria's transition to a federal system of government. The project analyzes 10 years of civil rule in Nigeria, between 1999 and 2009, and its constitutional arrangements while also engaging in comparative studies of other socio-political developments in Sub-Saharan Africa. The collective influences of the judiciary on the polity was improved and strengthened through globalization. In addition, organized pressure groups, non-governmental organizations, as well as the Civil Society Organization, have played significant roles as vehicles of socio-political change and transformation. They continue to act as buffers for the sustenance of democratic rule, well beyond the period in question.

This work analyzes the history of the application of Islamic law (Shari'ah) in Nigeria. It analyzes how Islamic law emerged in Nigeria toward the beginning of the 19th century and remained applicable until the arrival of the British Colonial regime in Northern Nigeria in 1903. It sheds light on how the law survived colonial rule and continues until today. Dr. Yushau Sodiq analyzes progressive elements in Islamic law over the past two centuries. He goes on to discuss many objections raised by the Nigerian Christians against the application of Islamic law, as well as how Muslims respond to such criticism. In a world that is often saturated with Islamophobia and ignorant misconceptions about Islam, this book aims to clarify and respond to many important concepts and ideas within Islamic religious tradition.

  • The regulatory landscape of Nigeria's communication sector
  • Introduction to competition law
  • Market definition in Nigeria's communications sector
  • The substantial lessening of competition test
  • Anti-competitive agreements and practices
  • Abuse of a dominant position
  • Mergers, acquisitions and takeovers
  • Enforcement and remedies
  • A review of a bill for an act to establish the Federal Competition Commission and for purposes connected therewith.
"This...book gives a comprehensive review of the work of the Nigerian Communications Commission in regulating anti-competitive practices in Nigeria's communications market. To that end, the book, among other things, discusses the concept of a substantial lessening of competition, which is the substantive standard used for evaluating anti-competitive conducts in Nigeria's communications sector, and the substantive application of this standard by the Commission in the areas of anti-competitive agreements and practices: abuse of a dominant position; and mergers, acquisitions, and takeovers. The book also discusses the various conducts deemed by the Commission to result in a substantial lessening of competition, and the approach adopted by the Commission in regulating communications Licensees with market power and/or in conducting a dominance determination for the purpose of imposing ex ante regulatory obligations. It is intended that this book will serve as a...research guide for competition and communications law practitioners in Nigeria, and especially officials of the Commission investigating anti-competitive practices. Academics, economists and law students with an interest in the competition regulation of communications services in Nigeria will also find this book useful."-- Back cover.

  • A revolution for Shar'iah
  • Hausaland's Islamic modernity
  • Origins of the stoning punishment
  • Colonialism : then and now
  • The trial of Amina lawal
  • Gender and the Western reaction to the case.
In November of 1999, Nigerians took to the streets demanding the re-implementation of shari'ah law in their country. Two years later, many Nigerians supported the death sentence by stoning of a peasant woman for alleged sexual misconduct. Public outcry in the West was met with assurances to the Western public: stoning is not a part of Islam; stoning happens "only in Africa"; reports of stoning are exaggerated by Western sensationalism. However, none of these statements are true. Shari'ah on Trial goes beyond journalistic headlines and liberal pieties to give a powerful account of how Northern Nigerians reached a point of such desperation that they demanded the return of the strictest possible shari'ah law. Sarah Eltantawi analyzes changing conceptions of Islamic theology and practice as well as Muslim and British interactions dating back to the colonial period to explain the resurgence of shari'ah, with implications for Muslim-majority countries around the world.
