....... "Wonderful write up. No doubt women are treated less favourable in all RAMIFICATION especially when it comes to the death of a husband. I hope the ugly ideas will eradicated as a matter of urgency & legality.

brighter side. Let nothing worry u..... "
......" My dear sister how are you this morning, hope alright. You are right but please don't let these culture people pull your legs. Just keep being strong and keep
quiet untill we bid our final farewell toEme. You don't need all this nonsense right now. Please be calm, plan your beloved husband's funeral, everything will be fine. Just ignore the cultural people. What ever you do people must talk. At the end of the day
what matters is what you want to do and how you want to do it. God is with you in Jesus name Amen."
............" Cultures should be flexible and progressive. It's the 21st century and old tales should be recounted for literature
sake not for enforcement in modern times... "
Absolutely, any culture that violates the protected rights of any citizen including a woman, just because she is a woman is a breach
of the equal protection provisions of section 42 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended). It is also obnoxious, unfair, and an aberration to equity and good conscience and must be condemned in very strong terms. Thankfully,
the Nigerian Courts are proactive and very progressive in doing away with customs and traditions with chilling effects on the rights and respect for women. Time to move on! I urge ALL to join the train...... "... From Akwa Ibom State High Court Judge - Justice
