Treaties 

Is your country party to any bilateral or multilateral treaties for the reciprocal recognition and  enforcement of foreign judgments? What is the country’s approach to entering into these treaties,  and what, if any, amendments or reservations has your country made to such treaties?

the Reciprocal Enforcement of Judgments Act 1922, Chapter 175, Laws of the Federation and Lagos 1958 (the 1958 Act).
