A lady denied her inheritance due to her disability

Miss Ngozi, a young lady who is blind was denied her right to inherit her late father property as result of her disability. This took place last Friday, September 27 2019 at Jabi Abuja. Her father's relatives claimed that she wasn't worth the inheritance as she is useless to herself and the family because of her blindness.

This issue goes contrary to the Article 12, point 5 of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the SDG goal 16 see and this requires urgent intervention. This would help to tackle the issue of discrimination against the girl child and those with disability. Girls with disabilities even suffer twice from such discrimination we can seen in the case of Ngozi.
