“IT IS A CRIME TO FAIL IN CHILD IMMUNISATION.”

Every parent/guardian with custody of a child in Nigeria, irrespective of tribe, religion and wealth must provide full immunisation for such child under the age of 2 years.
Failure to do so, is an offence punishable with a fine not exceeding #5, 000 Naira for first time offenders but imprisonment for not more than 1 month for second time or more offenders and also an order that such child be immunised.

My authorities are sections 4, 5, and 278 of Child’s Rights Act, 2003.

“Government Cannot Pay Compensation For An Empty Land After A Compulsory Acquistion”.

When Government compulsorily acquires your land, Government will not pay compensation for the land, of the land is a mere empty land. Rather Government can compensate you for a paid ground rent of the present year, improvements, installation and developments you made on such land like economic trees, buildings, dams and other immovable attachments.

My authorities are sections 29 of the land Use Act 1978.

It is a Land Use and Allocation Committee and not any court, that has jurisdiction to entertain any dispute as to amount of compensation calculated.

See section 30 of Land Use Act.

No matter the size, location and long ownership of your land, no government will compensate you for your land if it compulsorily acquires it. Rather government shall compensate for unexhausted improvements/developments on such land, like buildings, crops, fence, well and installations, etc.

Can government demolish my house and take my land without compensation? Yes, government can demolish your house and take your land! Albeit, government will compensate you for all your expenditure on the land in certain circumstances.  The circumstances and steps therein will be theme of this piece.  I advise you to get a copy of the Land Use Act of 1978 from any bookshop to understand and appreciate land contracts and transactions in Nigeria, as a whole. A copy of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended) will also help.
