Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999

The Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is the grundnorm of the country, to which every state action and law is subject. Section 1 of the Constitution expressly provides for the Supremacy of the constitution, over and above any other law in the country.

Section 1(3) states, “If any other law is inconsistent with the provisions of this Constitution, this Constitution shall prevail, and that other law shall, to the extent of the inconsistency, be void.”

In the Supreme Court case of Nwaigwe and ors v Nze Edwin Okere (2008) LPELR – 2095 (SC), per ONNOGHEN, JSC held on the effect of any law or act that is inconsistent with the constitution, thus; “…the constitution is the Supreme law of the land and it is settled law that any law or Act or Section thereof that is inconsistent with any provision of the constitution is null and void to the extent of the inconsistency.”
