Nigerian politician, Prince Ned Nwoko, the husband of Nollywood actress Regina Daniels, has given his opinion on how to stop young women from venturing into prostitution as well as increase the population of the south.
The billionaire disclosed that if men decide to be marrying more than one wife, it will greatly help the society by saving mature girls from societal vices like prostitution.
Nwoko, while in an interview with BBC Igbo, made an example with the average northern man, who marries at least two wives, and suggested that men should emulate it because that is the formula that can help the society as well as
preventing young women from going into prostitution.
“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 mentioned that the trend among northerners has increased their population greatly, far more than the southerners and also made them the majority in the country.
“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,”he added.
