In 1980, an Agreement was concluded by the Asian African Legal Consultative Committee (AALCO) with the Federal Government of Nigeria for the creation of an arbitration center in Lagos. The Centre was formally inaugurated in March 1989. In 1999, the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, on behalf of Nigeria and the Secretary-General of the AALCO, signed an Agreement which formalized the continued functioning of the Center.
