Incoming member of the House of Representatives, Akin Alabi says he would train his daughter to see marriage as the most important thing.

The CEO of Nairabet said this in a series of tweets on Sunday afternoon – Where he stressed that “patriarchy” has been fueled with the attitude and behaviour that marriage is the most important thing.

He decried how people have trivialised great academic and career achievement and placed marriage at the top of the hierarchy of life achievements.

He tweeted:

For you, all the progress she made all these years are “normal”. This is the ultimate. She has found a husband. You now like every post. You comment congratulations and go girl on every picture. To you, that is the only thing that matters. She has a man and must hold him tight.

This is the kind of behavior and attitude that fuels patriarchy. Nigerian men know that for most women, their ultimate life ambition is getting married so they see themselves as gold. They see themselves as the vessel of happiness for women.

Many males do not know that because you have a penis, you don’t automatically become a man. Unfortunately, most women don’t agree. Any man is a man. Dirty, irresponsible, vile, violent… doesn’t matter. They say, at least I have a man.

I am not going to train my daughter to see marriage as the most important thing. I will let her value, health, education, career, finances and other things over marriage. Finding a good man as a partner forever will be icing for her and not the cake itself. She is the cake.
