“It is actually the man that should be in the kitchen as provided for in the Holy Quran” – Former Niger Gov. Muazu Aliyu

According to Vanguard, former governor of Niger State, Dr. Muazu Aliyu made the statement while giving a speech at the annual lecture series organised by Newgate College of Technology, Minna.

“Looking at the issue critically, and in Islamic terms, it is actually the man that should be in the kitchen as provided for in the Holy Quran. The woman should only be in the ‘inner room’ while the men should provide all the needs of the woman, including making purchases from the market for the use of the family.

Islam does not permit women to go out indiscriminately, as they are supposed to be in the house taking care of the children,” Aliyu said.

The former governor however, said that spouses are supposed to work together for the good of their homes and the society.

Aliyu also lashed out at those who use religion to take many wives.

“The era of men taking many wives has gone. Those that have married more than one wife and claimed that the scriptures allow it are doing so ignorantly and out of the tenets of Islam. What the law says is that if you can be faithful and fair to two wives, you are allowed to take more than one wife. But I don’t see how a man can be faithful and fair to more than one wife at a time,” Aliyu noted.

    Jesus Christ, the woman won’t go out at all. Babangida Aliyu, hypocrite trying to sound politically and religiously correct. How many wives do you Have, polygamy has always been in Africa before the 2 religions came. You can outrightly condemn polygamy, though I accept you can love 2 women equally tankless of 4 women. Monogamy unfortunately is not the answer itself. There are more divorces, domestic violence in monogamy than in polygamy. The proponents of monogamy I.e the western world suffers more from divorce than societies that allows polygamy. Can polygamy curb adultery which has always been the bane of monogamous relationships, a study needed to be done in that direction

      @Paul Adeyemo. Is that your plan. I pity your wife, fiancee or girlfriend. I see that the solution to marital problems is Polygamy. Stop quoting the west as if you can’t find good, long standing monogamous marriages in Nigeria. There are people who get married out of lust and there are people who ask God.

    I thought we are done with this issue of who should be in the kitchen or who should not?What Nigerians need right now is good policies that will transform lives in Nigeria.The economy is in a mess how long will it takes Mr president to fix it?I think People should be delivering talk on her to move Nigeria forward, advising and motivating the president through their speeches and lectures on her to move the country to the promise land instead of talking about irrelevant things.Nigeria is in a total mess right now we need lectures on economic and social development,lectures of hope and solutions,safety and security and not talk on irrelevant things.When i mean when are we going to get it right in this country?Young and vibrant leader that will move this country forward that will address security,education,economic,infrastructures,good roads etc is what i pray and desire for this country in the coming years.I don’t think all this papas will deliver any good to this country all of them seems to be on a mission of vendetta.

      @tunmi, “”because you IDENTIFY as a woman””? God help us. This is how the devil has corrupted the thinking of people, and then the language, to the culture, beliefs and practices and laws; do you have gender identity crisis? Are you transgender, or lesbian, or whatever else in the confused, satanic lgbtq spectrum? Or, none, but just evidence of how confused the times and the world and the people in it have become.
