From online banking and mobile payments to cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology, the landscape of electronic transactions is constantly evolving. As we navigate the digital economic landscape, it is essential to understand the legal framework that governs electronic transactions.”

Kazeem said, any country including Nigeria wishing to prosper and benefit from the wealth of the global village must continue to create an enabling environment and enact laws for Electronic transitions to thrive.

Nigeria appears to be moving in the right direction with the various levels of activity occurring in its digital space, but there is room for improvement and this work aims to further catalyse that process.”

Mr. Lateef Fagbemi, Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, SAN, will chair the public presentation of the book. At the same time, former Federal Commissioner of Works, Alhaji Femi Okunnu, SAN, will be the Special Guest of Honour.
