An inheritance can be wasted, squandered, damaged, diminished or destroyed. In the ideal situation, an inheritance should be held with a sense of stewardship, with the knowledge that it would be inherited by subsequent generations. This sense of stewardship includes the responsibility to bring about improvements on the inherited artefacts. Overall, the future of what is inherited depends mostly on the disposition of the inheritor. This is the person that decides whether to preserve and handover to the next generation or to squander and waste what was inherited... In our cultural worldview, when we say uwem edi imo (life is wealth), monetary consideration is not part of the equation. True wealth includes a sense of health, wellbeing, solidarity and happiness.
