The pervasive influence of technology has revolutionised numerous sectors across the globe, underscoring the need for a comprehensive evaluation of the tools that technology has engendered. Artificial Intelligence (AI), as a prominent technological tool, has exceeded expectations and proven immensely beneficial to humanity. Consequently, it is imperative to scrutinise the ethical and regulatory frameworks governing its application. This paper employs a doctrinal methodology to analyse the regulatory landscape and ethical guidelines surrounding AI technology in Nigeria and some selected jurisdictions. The findings highlight the necessity of establishing a robust governance system to govern the utilisation of this transformative technology. In light of the analysis, this study proposes several recommendations, including the imposition of stringent requirements for the provision and utilisation of AI tools, as well as the intensification of collaborations with relevant stakeholders.
