The Act concerns claims enforceable by or against the Government and related civil proceedings. Subject to this Act and any other Act, all debts, damages, duties, sums of money, land, or goods, due, payable or belonging to the Government, is to be sued for and recovered by proceedings taken for that purpose in accordance with the provisions of this Act. In any proceedings against the Government for the recovery of land or other property, the Court shall not make an order for the recovery of the land or the delivery of the property, but may instead make an order declaring that a person is entitled as against the Government to the land or property or to the possession thereof. The Act excludes liability of the Government for the compensation in respect of an interest in customary land.
