Actor Akah Nnani has said men should also take part in chores in the home and not leaving every activity in the home for their wives to carry out.
Taking to his Instagram page, the actor wrote that it is time for gender equality in the home as well as it is an all-round responsibility of the man to take care of his household and protect them from invaders of any sort.
I believe a man’s responsibility is to protect the woman, his wife, from stress. In these times, fathers are to protect their kids from germs. Help your kids wash their hands. Protect your family from the social damage of having an absent father.
We always talk about ‘wife material’ well, there should be #HusbandMaterial too then.
We live in a world where women are unfairly burdened with the responsibility of caring for the home alone. They cook, clean, take care of the kids and all sorts… Then still have to do work.
I’ve been married for over a year now and before marriage, I always knew I didn’t want domestic help. In my home, when she cooks I wash the bathroom, she sweeps, I mop. She is tired, I make the indomie. I wash the dishes. I also keep MY home. Because it is mine too.
I know men can do better when we know better. This is why I am joining the #HeForShe campaign to remind my brothers that #GenderEquality should also be at home. Oh, the world would be so much better and we would be so much happier if we worked together to make every human feel valued.
