Abstract: The steady growth of the law of consumer protection under the Nigerian jurisprudence has led to a much wider understanding and appreciation of the subject for what it stands for, that is, a subject which is all-encompassing and touches and concerns every person, naye very legal or juristic persona. Ralph Nader] who contended that the term “consumer” should be equated with the word “citizen” knew exactly what he was postulating and when viewed from that perspective , it would appear correct to suggest and rightly too that the alienee or transferee of a right of occupancy or other estate or interest in land comes within the contextof a consumer with respect to the applicable services expected to be rendered to him for the purpose of properly perfecting his title and achieving a secure and indefeasible title therein. And when reviewed from the point of view of the services professionally or officially rendered or renderable to him in the process of the acquisition of title there will be seen to be the need to examine the state of the law to see if he has any form of protection as a consumer of such services under the law. This piece sets out to probe the position of the alienee or transferee of an estate in land within the context of the requirement of consent to alienation of right of occupancy under the Land Use Act.
