ABSTRACT

The word land means different things to different people and in different context. These different meanings notwithstanding, land, since prehistoric time, has been of elemental significance to the affairs of man.

In this thesis the various interests compulsory acquired were looked into. The compensation paid for these interests were adequately examined to determine the adequacy of the compensation. In the payment of compensation, time factor was also considered  

This study examined the evolution and formation of acquisition laws in Nigeria with a detailed examination of the Land Use Act of 1978 as its objective. Another objection of this study is to see whether the acquisition and compensation of Akure Airport actually conformed with the provision of the law. The necessary data required for this study were collected through interview and administration of questionnaires.

Finally, it was discovered that serving acquisition notice through a specified and generalized means is adequately efficient and cost effective as against the provision of the Land Use Act. There was delay in payment of compensation. Also, no interest was paid for the delay in payment of compensation as provided for by the law.
