Any company or individual can be an owner of a business name. Even underage people can own a business name, however this requires special permission.
If the owner is a minor, the CAC asks for an attestation from a magistrate, legal practitioner, or a police officer of a certain rank.
Registering a business name in Nigeria requires having a valid and nationally recognized form of identification such as;
2. Driver’s license
3. Permanent voter’s card
4. National ID card.
These can sometimes take months to obtain. So if you’re in a hurry, they may accept a declaration of age.
