Nollywood actress Regina Daniels‘ billionaire partner, Ned Nwoko, has clarified why he has more than one wife.
In an interview with BBC Igbo, the billionaire politician clarified why he chose polygamy for economic reasons. He claims that the average northerner has at least two wives, which he claims benefits society by preventing promiscuity among women.
“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.”
He also said that northerners’ polygamist nature has aided in their population growth and made them the majority.
Nwoko also bemoaned how the Enlightenment promoted monogamy, despite the fact that it is not our custom.
“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.”
Do You Think Ned Nwoko Is Making Sense Or Not??
