Nollywood actress Regina Daniel’s husband, Ned Nwoko has revealed that marrying more than one wife is helping save society.
During an interview dating back to December 2020 with BBC Igbo, the businessman explained the economical reason behind his choice of polygamy.
According to him, the average northerner has at least two wives and they are helping society by preventing these women from being promiscuous.
“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.”
The politician and former member of the house of representatives also said the polygamist nature of northerners has helped to increase their population in the country and made them the majority. He also complained about how enlightenment has encouraged monogamy even though it is not our culture.
“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.
