and
Chidinma eefeh artuh nm ( ifeatu m ),
there is really no point or value derived
if
people from the ibo / igbo ( eeboe / eegboe ) language speaking areas

go about
continue to go about
everywhere

as if
things are just fine
with their native customs and their native practices

whereas in actual fact
things are not fine at all

… really, from a view-point of fairness, honesty and objectivity …

in and/or with some aspects of their
native customs and native practices
regarding female folk i.e
regarding women and
regarding girls.

very self-evidently,
one of these still currently prevailing
wicked, oppressive and cruel
cultural practices / traditional practices / historically inherited practices
against
women folk and girl folk i.e female folks

in the igbo /ibo language speaking areas of Nigeria

is

THAT WICKED PRACTICE WHERE WHEN A MAN DIES
HIS MALE RELATIVES
KICK OUT THE WOMAN AND ALL HER CHILDREN FROM HIS HOUSE
AND
TAKE OVER THE HOUSE FOR THEMSELVES.

any which you look at it
this is an act of
PURE WICKEDNESS
against
the woman and her children.

another one of these still currently prevailing
wicked, oppressive and cruel
cultural practices / traditional practices / historically inherited practices
against
women folk and girl folk i.e female folks
in the igbo /ibo language speaking areas of Nigeria

is

THAT WICKED PRACTICE WHERE
WHEN A MAN WHO OWNS LAND(S) DIES
ONLY HIS MALE CHILDREN
ARE ALLOWED TO INHERIT FROM THE LAND(S)
NO MATTER HOW MANY FEMALE CHILDREN HE HAS
AND
WHERE HE HAPPENS TO HAVE NO MALE CHILD
HIS RELATIVES TAKE OVER ALL HIS LAND(S)
WITHOUT GIVING ANY PORTION TO HIS SURVIVING WIFE ( IF ANY )
AND
WITHOUT GIVING ANY PORTION TO ANY OF HIS FEMALE CHILDREN

any which you look at it
this is an act of
PURE MALEVOLENCE
against
female children.

and without mincing words,
Chidinma nnkeh nm ( nkeh m ) ( nkem )
it all smacks of

GENDER IN-EQUALITY

OPPRESSION OF WOMEN FOLK and GIRL FOLK

REPRESSION OF WOMEN FOLK and GIRL FOLK

SUPPRESSION OF WOMEN FOLK and GIRL FOLK

ACTS OF INHUMANITY AGAINST WOMEN FOLK and GIRL FOLK
