this is not discrimination if is in igbo tradition the male children will inherit those properties except if the the man will some to the female children that is not the birth right of the first son. tradition is like a law it has being there b4 both are married.

what you need is a little education to set you free from this bondage of traditionally inherited illiteracy!

Supposing There Were No Male Children In A Family, Only Female Children; Does It Mean That A Family's Inheritance Should Be Transferred To A Family With Male Children? Of Course "NOT"

                                     
                                                         
                    The Very First Question We Need To Ask Ourselves Is:

Are Female Children Human Beings Just Like Male Children? If Yes, Then Female Children Definitely Must Share In Family Inheritance….

                                                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                                 CJ, 2012.

In case where d man has not much property is even worse...........u are talking 4rm wat u were told but I have witnessed and experienced it.........the last case I experienced was 4rm my own family........the man (deceased)  has two children.., a male and a female......he left two plots of land but his elder brother sold 1 long ago when the children were still very young..........and the land was far 4rm where they lived.........but the wife fought vehemently 2 make sure dat d oda plot was not sold...........she was a devoted christian and even refused to remarry but remain with her two children until they grow............still the kindred did not give up.......... when the matter arose again not long ago b4 I left home.......den I volunteered my self to see d bottom of it..........datz hw I got 2 knw more about d useless tradition not only in my village cuz I made research abt it........but at last the remaining land was sold by the boy and his mother.........then he gave small part of the moni to her sister who has married..........anoda small part 2 the mother who fought 4 d land until he grew up.............then some part to the kindred in oda 2 maintain peace..................and find his way wit larger amount.................But dat does not mean it is done dat way according 2 Igbo tradition my brother.................like wise killing of twins was a tradition in some places in the olden dayz but somebody fought 4 it and stopped it............I rest my case
Woo, he is a good guy, not a lot of igbo men will do what he did. That is love, he loves his people and did not want land to come between them. Yeah I have heard about the killing of twins crap but I do not know much at the law or history.

as an igboman the 2nd wife is right....but not good the husband could have done little to her first wife notice about the will even oral speaking alone....as family all they need is understanding....if the man at house agree and those girls have not gotten husband then they will enjoy there fathers wealth but long as they get married finish   they don't have any thing left over at fathers compound....what am saying is give the ladies/woman because maybe they senior the boys abi?Huh? given 20% of the wealth while they are still not married after they get married nothing more.....

What I am saying is give them something, It doesn't have to be one of the houses, maybe a portion of the land or something. That is one crazy law, but you know, people go to court these days instead of going by tradition

from experience , the first wife and children would live in the house with no problems,untill they got married, their mother too has every right to live in the house and other properties(not selling them ooo) untill she dies, the gul has no right to share land, house or any other `porperty if their father do not give it to them while alive

We learn new thing here everyday. I for one did not know that in
some cultures in Nigeria, female children are not allowed to inherit
properties from their family. My village does not discriminate.

Infact properties left by the parents belong to the surviving children.
They are not even shared. They become properties jointly owned and
used. If they are rented out, the child get shares from the income
regardless of gender.
However, the younger kids tends to benefit most since the older
children may have already acquired their own properties.

I ve always stand against hypocrisy in Africa and Nigeria in particular.  Why shouldn't a female child be entitled to an inheritance of her late father? Would it be a taboo if she uses it to support her husband and her own children? What about in a case where a woman got married to a man who has nothing while single, and both of them eventually struggle together and become successful, now would their female children be left empty handed when their father died simply b/cos they re women? Does it sound right in any way?

How would u feel if u were to be in their shoes?

Look, let me tell you something bitch, you better back off, I do not know you and have never communicated with you. Next time around, I am going to be nasty to you. Maybe you think that you can come in here and write craps to people's comments. Try it again and I will show you what I do with jump offs like you.

Females are people too. Unless the owner of the property explicitly said they should not take part then they should be allowed to enjoy it
