Author: Edwin Obimma Ezike
Dr Ezike is a Senior Lecturer at the Department of Public and Private Law at the University of Nigeria, with more than twenty years of research and teaching experience in the field of contract law.
Drawing on that experience, this book captures the rapid evolution of contract law in Nigeria that has resulted from the country's return to democracy and the consequent increase in private sector activities resulting from privatisations and foreign direct investments. Topical issues that are addressed include the enforceability of pre-contractual agreements, the contractual capacity of government officials, agencies and organs, the sufficiency of consideration or forbearance, fundamental breach with reference to exclusion clauses and the assessment of damages.
Recent developments in English contract law and their likely influences in Nigeria are also considered and, as a result of the revolution in trade practices brought about by the internet, a whole chapter is devoted to online contracts. The book is suitable for both practitioners and students.
