    There is element of truth to what he is saying but he did not explain it well.

      Nigerians hate the truth – one of the reasons we’ll never move forward. Although, poorly worded, this man has made some good points.

    Abayomi Shogunle you’re a certified moron. What’s the big deal if a woman smoke cigarettes, drink beer above all, she’s the bread winner of her family? Officer you need to travel outside Nigeria to experience life on another level. A word is enough for the wise. I’m just saying.

      Having a different opinion thats not the norm does not make anyone backward or less intelligent. Traveling outside of Nigeria Shouldn’t be the yardstick for everything. You sound like a bigger certified moron.
      If you disagree and don’t mind marrying a man or woman who does these things, that’s your prerogative. Keep it moving.
      He’s just stating his opinion.

      Smoking and drinking heavily does alter one’s emotions and judgement. And For health purposes, wouldn’t even advice it at all. People always use the “oh this person does this or that and looks normal”. That’s what you think.
      Ain’t nothing cute about smoking and drinking. I’m a girl, and I get turned off when I see men and women who do it.

    Another less than smart person in a position of power. What does smoking cigarettes have to do with violence? Or a mum being the decision maker.

    I am tired

    this is what he should have said. women and men who have substance abuse problems, i.e weed alcohol drugs. People in high risk , high stress, and illegal jobs( you could argue they use substances as coping mechanism to function or de-stress.The only way job thingy can be translated to people in situations without financial security/ people in situations where they are financially abused, The flip side to the argument is for a woman been the sole provider, but is economically oppressed because she has no financial control over the money she earns , to gain the control sometimes the man has to resort to violence to control her so he can control her finances. he is seeing just seeing it from the surface because he he has no knowledge on how to articulate himself. “dad is irresponsible part” can be assumed that a child witnessed abuse or reckless behavior of a parent and tends to continue the cycle as an adult There are numerous studies that state that children exposed to high stress/ violent environments are more prone to depression, abuse , and self harm behaviors as adults.

    It’s just an opinion, and the last time I checked, everyone is entitled to one. If u choose to marry an alcoholic, a junkie, a criminal or someone who has shitty upbringing, it’s really nobody’s business. But, if ur spouse starts bulldozing u, don’t come crying on social media cos u made ur choice.

    He is 100% correct…do we even need a police man to spell it out…It is just basic common sense which Is lacking in fish brains…just take a look at the black community in USA and see the damage it had done to them..single and baby mamas and their bastard emotional childrens causing havocs up and down..goto prisons in america..90 % of inmates their are bastard emotional children of baby mamas and single mama…but funny enough they love mentioning the(10%) anomalies like ben carson etc who is just what they are by the grace of God and in -born dedication…anyway, as the police man said TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT

      What of the “men” part? You’ve conveniently deleted that part from your own Titus fish brain….

    I think he is speaking from experience.
    How many DV crime scenes have you been to?
    Will you go if you are called?

    Speak from your own experience and contribute instead of blaming him for the long standing issues of the police force.

    I get where he is coming from but he can’t articulate himself properly. @hhhhh sumed it up pretty well.
    Where I have a problem with him is – “don’t marry…..” blah blah. It is not your place to tell people who to marry or not. Rather, I’ll expect someone in your position to recommend policies that’ll help reduce this societal problem. Therapy, Social Security etc, are measures that can be used to deal with the root of these symptoms. Use your office for something significant Mister.

    There’s nothing wrong with what he said. We just need to take a chill pill and understand him. He means no harm

    Without a doubt, the “truth is always bitter”.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with what the ACP has said, it’s just an honest word of advice, and what @john said is equally the truth.
    Now, whether we choose to accept the words of the ACP based on his experience or not is another matter entirely, but to get abusive and insultive is totally uncalled for.

    Please every individual is entitled to their views and opinion and must be allowed to express such freely.
    Another truth is, whenever we choose to get all abusive and insultive because other people don’t agree with us or vice-versa, is a direct reflection of who we are and never about them.

    Learn to agree to disagree with a lot of decorum.

    But I smoke shisha and drink alcohol socially. I am married, happily married and have a lovely home.

    Goes to show that all generalizations are false.
