ABSTRACT

This study analyzed the Law on Company Meeting in Modern Day Corporate Governance in Nigeria. It principally discussed the concept of Company meeting, its various kinds and practical relevance as a key instrument for the protection of members of the company and a means by which they tame the activities of the overzealous or corrupt directors of the company. This study was motivated by the fact that, in spite of the critical role of company meetings, corporate mismanagement and expropriation of members of the company by the directors and the progressive decline of the practical objectives of company meetings has continued to be a challenge. These issues raised the questions as to how well does the law on company meetings protect the members of the company from corporate mismanagement and expropriation by the directors of the company? In all of these, the major aim of the study is to ensure that more protection is accorded to the members of the company.

The provision or requirement by Section 211(1) of the CAMA which mandated every public company only to hold statutory meeting within six months of its incorporation still suffer from big ambiguity especially on whether the section binds or includes companies changed or converted from private to public company. Furthermore, the study also found that the law on company meetings has hitherto not keep pace with developments in information technology on electronics meetings and application of electronics means in serving of notice of meeting and conducting the affairs of the meeting. In view of the above findings, it was recommended that the legislature should recognise the technological advancement by legalizing participation in company meeting through E-voting, E-ballot, video conferencing or by other audio-visual means. Moreover, electronic notice through e-mails, text messages to mobile phones, and other electronic means of communication should also be legalized in the CA
