Nigerian Constitution Section 13: Fundamental obligations of the Government [Nigerian Law]

Nigerian Constitution Chapter II: Fundamental objectives and directive principles of State policy

Section 13: Fundamental obligations of the Government

13. It shall be the duty and responsibility of all organs of government, and of all authorities and persons, exercising legislative, executive or judicial powers, to conform to, observe and apply the provisions of this Chapter of this Constitution.


Unfortunately, under Nigerian law, these so-called fundamental obligations of the Nigerian government are non-justiciable (they cannot be the subject of litigation to compel the government to enforce them for the benefit of the citizens).
