ABSTRACT

By the virtue of being human, all persons are entitled to human rights, which are fundamental to their existence. Therefore, irrespective of origin, sex, nationality and other social standards,
human rights are intrinsic, inherent and ontological to every person living or dead.

The rule of law is the foundation upon which human rights can strive. The constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria recognizes the significance of protecting the human rights of its citizens and as a result dedicated a chapter therein to provide for human rights which are fundamental and
guided not only from infringement but also likelihood of infringement.

Hence, this paper will assess the rule of law and human rights’ enforcement in Nigeria, critique the norm and at the same time address the Impediments.
