The purpose of the study is to review the mechanisms of land administration and registration in three states of Nigeria. It also investigated how accessible and efficient the land registries were in providing services to customers, especially the poor and disadvantaged. The study collected tangible evidence which underline the need for reforms, identified options and recommended measures for enhanced service delivery, focusing on existing delivery of land administration services, especially land registration, and the potential for improvement. The findings of the study reveal that the accessibility, transparency, accountability, equity, security and effectiveness of the registries in the provision of land administration services to customers, especially for the poor and disadvantaged are in doubt. Accordingly, recommendations for improvements in the policy and legal environment, institutional and structural frameworks, human capital development, commitment of political will, adequacy of funding and other capital improvements, sustained mass sensitization and enlightenment were made.
