“HOW TO DETECT AUTHENTIC DOCUMENTS MADE BY A COMPANY”

Documents including receipts, contracts and appointments from a company are often falsified, there by throwing third parties into doubts when transacting with companies. A document from a company which requires authentication must be signed by director, Secretary or any other officer of such company with or without seal of the company.

My authorities are sections 77 and 696 of the Companies and Allied Matters Act, 1990.

“A Business Name Is Not A Company But Can Sue or Be Sued To Any Court”

A business name is just a trade name for business and not a company. Well, like a company, a business name can now sue/charge any person to any court or be sued/charged to any court by any person for any reason whatsoever.
This is a departure from the old tradition of suing Business Names through their owners and partners.

My authority is Order 13 Rules 25 and 29 of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja (Civil Procedure) Rules 2018 and other similar rules of courts across Nigeria.

“A Minor Can Be A Shareholder But Not A Director In A Nigerian Company.”

A minor is one who is less than 18 years old. Such a person can be a shareholder in any company so far as they are at least 2 other shareholders who are adults. A minor can never be a director in any company in Nigeria. Directors see to the day to day running of a company and a minor obviously can’t handle such tasks.

My authorities are sections 20, 80 and 257 of the Companies and Allied Matters Act.
