Former Chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Abuja Branch, Desmond Yamah has observed that being a widow is an extremely challenging experience that no widow should go through but for the ephemeral nature of life.
Yamah stated that the Nigerian Bar Association, like FIDA must champion
the fight against widows’ abuses and disempowerment, which is common in our society on the demise of their husbands.
Denying widows the right of inheritance and in some occasions treating widows as properties to be shared amongst the relatives of their deceased husbands must be abolished within the parameters of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
I join all widows in praying for the repose of the Souls of their deceased husbands.
