Constitutional Analysis Assignment
Your FINAL Constitutional Analysis
At this point in our AP Government journey, you should understand that a constitution is a formal, legal document that reflects a nation’s history and outlines the fundamental principles and/or established precedents in which a state is to be governed. In this FINAL constitutional exploration, you will be comparing the Nigerian Constitution to the United States Constitution.
Go to http://www.nigeria-law.org/ConstitutionOfTheFederalRepublicOfNigeria.htm. Read through the chapter/section headings. Do a little research and reading of the sections you are interested in. The Nigeria Constitution is modeled off of the United States Constitution, but there are distinct differences. On a separate sheet of paper (to be turned in) please identify FIVE differences between our constitution and Nigeria’s. In a brief statement explain why each difference occurs (five differences- five explanations). HINT: Think about the Boko Haram reading you are doing for HW as you are doing your analysis.
