Popular Nigerian politician and husband to actress Regina Daniels, Ned Nwoko has shared some insight on why he has more than one wife and prefers to marry young women.
In an interview with BBC Igbo, the billionaire 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.
In his words: “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 the polygamist nature of northerners has helped to increase their population in the country and made them the majority. Nwoko also complained about how enlightenment has encouraged monogamy even though it is not our culture.
Ned said: “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 Northerner.”
Just recently, Ned Nwoko was reported to have bought his Moroccan wife, Laila, a Range Rover for her 30th birthday.
The Moroccan beauty was thrown a beautiful birthday bash attended by family and well-wishers. She also left fans pleasantly stunned when she showed off the Range Rover car her husband got for her.
Laila’s 30th birthday is no doubt one she won’t be forgetting in the hurry as clips shared to her Instastories also shows that she received a Rolex watch as well.
