Implications Of Agreement

A party who is considering whether to invoke force majeure or the inability to excuse the benefit should check whether a court believes that an amended or deferred benefit is appropriate rather than terminating the agreement. While some force majeure provisions provide clear guidance, many contracts pose a dilemma – the position of terminating the contract because of the impossibility, or trying to do so to a lesser extent or at a later date. The reintroduction (first) of Treaties 462 stipulates that a temporary impossibility « exposes the manufacturer`s obligation to make the promised benefit as long as the impossibility exists. » The redefinition (first) of Treaties 463 states that a partial impossibility concerns « the existence of the obligation » . . . . only with respect to this part; and if the execution of the entire contract is only possible with a significant change, the project is required to provide results with this change. The legality and applicability of « pre-agreements » (LOI/MOU/TS/HOA) depend on the intent (supported by negotiations and provisions) of the prior agreement signed by the parties. In order to determine whether the parties wish to be held, the Court of Justice must take an objective approach that can be inferred from the circumstances of this case. To avoid uncertainty, caution and clarity are required when developing the language, titles and terms of these documents.

For example, jurisdiction clauses, legal clauses, dispute resolution, confidentiality, exclusivity (deferred) and compensation (« pause fees ») may be mandatory and considered survivors for these documents. Incorporated Trustees of Nigerian Baptist Convention – Ors v. Governor of Ogun State – Ors [2016] LPELR 41134 (CA), the court had (as extract) at 25 D-E: « The government seemed denied by the [MoU], which he claimed in the letters of October 15, 2010 as the consolidation (sic) of the schools to them was not a return of the same. I do not see any illegality in the agreement reached by the parties to the [MoU] and I think it is also binding.┬áTsammani, JCA, which issued the judgment (unanimously ordered) in case 27 E-F, said, « So I think it would be certain to conclude that the [MoUs] crystallized the agreement between the complainants and the Ogun state government. » On page 59, the qualified JCA stated: « Second, given that it has been established that the agreements signed by the parties (MoUs) are still valid, subsisting and binding; THE INJUNCTION is granted to deter the respondents themselves, their agents and/or their agents from revoking or revoking the above agreement, except in accordance with the provisions of the [MoU].┬áSome types of contracts must comply with the law of fraud before a court imposes them.
