Major Forms Of Land Tenure Systems In Nigeria

In Nigeria, the various land tenure systems vary from state to state and from village to village. An ideal land tenure system acts as a cornerstone for economic growth and an incentive for investment. It makes room for secure land rights and ownership, the inclusion of vulnerable groups like women and low-income earners and reduces conflict. When land rights are unsecured, it leads to conflict, instability, tribal wars and discrimination against women – denying women the right to own or inherit the land.

The following are the major forms of land tenure systems in Nigeria:

  • The communal land tenure system
  • Open Access Land Tenure System
  • Inheritance tenure system
  • Leasehold tenure system
  • Gift tenure system
  • Rent tenure system
  • Freehold tenure system
  • Tenants at the government will
