For the past 50 years, space exploration and development has significantly contributed to advancement in science and technology. Many of the world’s advanced countries have successfully harnessed the resources in space and continue to embark on projects geared towards the full utilization of such resources.
Recognising this position, Nigeria has in recent years turned its focus to developing a well-defined institutional and regulatory system that will effectively manage Nigeria’s Space Program. While there has been some measure of success in this regard, it is clear that substantial work still remains to be done, if Nigeria intends to join the growing list of countries that have successful space programmes.
Having engaged with various Nigerian space agencies, OAL’s space law practice is dedicated to the continued development of the regulatory framework surrounding Nigeria’s space programme. Our space law practice is designed to offer advisory and policy oriented services to both the public and private sector.
