Foreign investment protection is relatively new to the Nigerian legal regime, following a shift from military rule to democracy in the late nineties. There is yet to be a comprehensive study which explores National laws and Bilateral investment treaties (BIT’s) as they reflect the recent global trends in international Investment protection. The adequacy of the law to protect foreign investment is Paramount to the increase of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in any given country. This book provides an insight into the inconsistency in the Nigerian legal regime that undermines protection of FDI'S and proffers ways to bridge this gap. The analysis provided should be a guide for anyone planning to do business in Nigeria, legal scholars as well as the Nigerian Investment Protection Commission. It should also stimulate Lawmakers to address the issues facing the protection of FDI and close the lacuna in the law; bringing it to par with International standards and foster Investment.
