Actress, writer and producer, Iretiola Doyle has advised people on the most important thing to take into account when deciding on who to make their next of kin.
According to the grandma, next of kin shouldn’t be chosen based on who you want to inherit your belongings, instead it should be based on who you trust to make life and death decisions on your behalf.
“When filling the blank space for “NEXT OF KIN”, let yr first thought not be “who will inherit my stuff”.
‘Let it be “who is the one person I would want making life & death decisions on my behalf should I be unable to do so for myself.” E get why,”
She tweeted. Reacting to her tweet, a lady explained further:
“Yes ma’am, next of kin just means the person to be called in case of an emergency. Not for the purpose of inheritance. People need to know the difference and tidy their affairs before the inevitable happens.”
