This Act provides for the re-sealing of probates and letters of administration granted in Commonwealth countries and a State of Nigeria. The Act defines conditions to be fulfilled before re-sealing and effects of re-sealing. The High Court of a State may, if it thinks fit, on the application of any creditor, require, before re-sealing, that adequate security be given for the payment of debts due from the estate to creditors residing in that State. The Chief Judge of the High Court of any State may make rules of court for regulating the procedure and practice, including fees and costs, in that Court, of and incidental to an application for the re-sealing of a probate or letters of administration under this Act.

British influence and control over what would become Nigeria and Africa's most populous country grew through the 19th century. A series of constitutions after World War II granted Nigeria greater autonomy. After independence in 1960, politics were marked by coups and mostly military rule, until the death of a military head of state in 1998 allowed for a political transition. In 1999, a new constitution was adopted and a peaceful transition to civilian government was completed.
