Onyekachi Duru Esq.

October 4, 2012

Contemporarily, efforts to tackle Human Rights abuses which are prevalent in the African region, especially in Nigeria received a boost recently with the introduction of the new Fundamental Rights (Enforcement Procedure) Rules, 2009. Indeed, the current procedural rule for the commencement of an action for the enforcement of fundamental human rights is guided by the Fundamental Rights (Enforcement Procedure) Rules 2009 made pursuant to Section 46(3) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria by the Chief Justice of the Federation. The current fundamental rights enforcement procedure rules, which were signed on 11th November, 2009 by a past Chief Justice of Nigeria, (CJN) Justice Idris Legbo Kutigi, came into force with immediate effect. This brief work is an overview of the provisions of the 2009 Rules.
