This paper critically discussed the controversial avoidance of the equipment lease transactions from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Regulation of Secured Transactions Law.

It considers the utility of UNCITRAL’s Legislative Guide on Secured Transactions and the UNCITRAL Registry Guide as benchmarks for the reform of equipment leasing in sub-Saharan Africa using Nigeria as a focus country. a wholesale reform of equipment leasing in sub-Saharan Africa.
