“An Unsigned Agreement Is Valid and Binding On Parties.”

It is basic knowledge that an unsigned document is worthless. Well, the Supreme Court of Nigeria has also held that an unsigned agreement is valid and binding where such agreement and intention of parties to be bound by it are not in doubt. And, there is no contrary statutory provisions and the signing of the agreement itself was not a condition for the existence of the agreement.

My authorities are OGUDO V. THE STATE (2011) LPELR-860(SC) and AWOLAJA & Ors V. SEATRADE G.B.V (2002) LPELR-615(SC)
