DAILY LAW TIPS by Onyekachi Umah,Esq.(Tip 232)
“A CHILD IN NIGERIA CAN SUE THE PARENTS FOR NOT PROVIDING ENOUGH WEALTH FOR HIM”.
Yes, a child in Nigeria has a right to maintenance and can sue his parents or guardians for not providing for him in accordance with the extent of their means. He can sue in a family court. Hence, parents that dump their children and run away to enjoy themselves alone should be careful.
My authorities are sections 14(2) of Child’s Rights Act, 2003 and other similar laws enacted by States in Nigeria.
