DOCTRINE OF PRIVITY OF CONTRACT
The terms of a contract are binding only on the contracting parties and they cannot bind third parties nor can third parties take or accept liabilities under it or benefit there under. This is what is known as privity of contract and it is about the sanctity of contract. See, the case of Cyprian v. Uzo (2016) ALL FWLR (pt. 849) p. 859 @ page 891, paras. E – F.
