How to remove a Trustee of a Non-Profit Organisation In Nigeria

July 13, 2022

Section 834 of the Companies and Allied Matters Act 2020 stipulates the requirement and procedure for the removal of a trustee of a non-profit organisation in Nigeria.

To remove a trustee of a non-profit organisation, a resolution for removal of the trustee must be passed at a general meeting of the organisation, after which a 28 days notice of removal will be displayed at the premises of the foundation for everyone to see. Any one who has an objection can write to the commission within the 28 days period objecting to the removal the trustee.

An application for the removal of a trustee must also include a 28 days newspaper publication in two daily newspapers, minutes of meeting, completed trustee’s declaration form(s) and such other documents that may be required to be submitted upon application on the CAC post incorporation site.

It is important to note that the minimum requirement or composition of trustees of a non-profit organisation is two(2), so where there are just two trustees, for removal to be effective there must be an appointment of another trustee.
