Regina Daniels’ husband and father of her son, Ned Nwoko , has explained how marrying more than one wife helps the society.
NEWS MAIL reports that the billionaire and politician told BBC Igbo that the average northern man marries at least two wives and that helps the society by making women not venture into prostitution.
In his words
“The average Northerner marrying two, three, four women, they are helping the society because it is the economic downturn that has affected so many women who you see doing prostitution and all that. But the fallacy of it all is that Christianity does not allow that in the South and yet, the average Southern man has 10 girlfriends.”
Ned Nwoko added that the culture of marrying many wives in the north has helped them increase their population and positioned the region as the majority in Nigeria. He also said he loves the original culture of the Igbos.
“I love my culture as I know it, not as they are trying to dilute it. Igbo culture is wonderful and should be promoted the way it has always been.
But even looking at that, look at your population in Nigeria and what I will call economy of marriage, as an Igbo man with one wife, four children, a Northerner has four wives with five children each, in the next 10 years, 20 years, imagine the population of the Northerners.”
