A list of registered companies and key data about each company. Open data from company registers may be used for many ends: e.g. enabling customers and businesses to see with whom they deal, or to see where a company has registered offices. This definition draws on the work of OpenCorporates.

|Up-to-date||No||It is unclear as you cannot search companies based on when they were registered. While I did my queries I did not find recently registered companies. Since we do not give the benefit of doubt, I question that data is updated.|
|In an open and machine-readable format|
|Collected by government||Yes|
|characteristics||Name of company, Physical company location, Unique identifier per company, Date of registration (and dissolution)||It is unclear to know how many companies are actually available on the website and each company entry must be retrieved individually. Company location however allows to extrapolate that data is provided for several regions in Nigeria.|
