Nigerian Agribusiness entrepreneur and Humanist, Mazi Uju Nwokorobia, has opined that the major role of women in society is to bear and raise children.
According to him, women who do not obey this principle but rather chose to pursue a career or struggle for money to be wealthy end up unhappy in life.
“The major role of women in the society is to bear and raise children. It is not to pursue career or struggle to be wealthy. A woman who neglects this natural role may turn out unhappy.”.
His comments have sparked a conversation on social media. Some netizens side with him whiles other think his opinion is not valid.
One commenter who disputed Mazi’s opinion wrote:
‘Mazi, I strongly disagree with you here. My wife is a career woman, and she hasn’t been any less of a caring mother for our kids. Raising children should be a joint responsibility. The womenfolk should have unrestrained right to pursue career dreams of their choices and fulfill their potentials as long as it doesn’t interfere with their roles as a wife and a mother.”
