DAILY LAW TIPS by Onyekachi Umah,Esq.(Tip 173)
“An Unsigned Agreement Is Valid and Binding On Parties.”
It is basic knowledge that an unsigned document is worthless.

And, there is no contrary statutory provisions and the signing of the agreement itself was not a condition for the existence of the agreement.
My authorities are OGUDO V. THE STATE (2011) LPELR-860(SC) and AWOLAJA & Ors V. SEATRADE G.B.V (2002) LPELR-615(SC)
