Nigerian extremely rich person, Ned Nwoko and spouse of mainstream Nollywood entertainer, Regina Daniels has expressed that getting married to more than one wife helps society.
He spread the word about this during a meeting with BBC Igbo, expressing that the normal northerner has at any rate two spouses, and this aids the general public by keeping ladies from wandering 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.”
Talking further, Nwoko said the polygamist idea of northerners has assisted with expanding their populace and made them the larger part of 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.”
