Property Rights of Women in Nigeria as Impediment to Full Realisation of Economic and Social Rights
The paper examines the legal effect of economic and social rights in Nigeria and relates this to the property rights of women in the capacity of a daughter, a wife and a widow. It argues that the property rights of women in its practical manifestation does not actualise economic and social rights in Nigeria. The discourse makes recommendations towards the reform of Nigerian property law in this area.
