The central theoretical argument of this book is that women have the right to inherit property from their spouses and parents in the light of Scripture and on ethical grounds. The women as God’s creation in His image with unlimited covenantal relationship with God have rights to inheritance. God’s Natural law and grace upon all humans and the fact that God reigns and rules over all things give women the rights to inherit property. Recommendations on the best way forward to eliminate the harmful cultural practices that are against women’s property ownership in Nigeria (especially in the South-East) are duly proffered.
