Status, Problems and Prospects of Rural Land Tenure in Kaduna State and Some Reflections on Land Tenure Policies in Nigeria



Status, Problems and Prospects of Rural Land Tenure in Kaduna State and Some Reflections on Land Tenure Policies in Nigeria



Dissertation Abstracts International, A 41(3): 1220



The study describes how rural land is acquired, held and transferred in the Zaria area of Kaduna State, Nigeria. The individual farmer's relationship to land, specifically his access to land and the security of that access is explored. Access to land is still predominantly gained through inheritance and gift, the traditional forms of tenure. However, there is a breakdown in the spirit of communal ownership inherent in the tenure system in response to changes in the mode of production.
