A Nigerian writer, Chuka Phillip-Jonson, has stated that Nigerian men have nothing to offer independent women in an egalitarian society.
He said most Nigerian men hate women who don’t depend on them for financial support.
Taking to his Twitter page, Chuka Phillip-Jonson shared the experience of his female friend in Nigeria, according to him, she visited the country for the first time to meet men who kept trying to impress her with money.
She also went on to discover that apart from the money, the men had nothing else to offer her, and were quick to demand marriage from her, despite her not having any interest in it.
The Dutchreviewing writer ended his post by stating that Nigerian men hate when a woman is financially independent, as it makes them lose their power.
See what he wrote below;
“LOL. I have this Dutch friend who’s mixed race (half Nigerian), and visited Nigeria 4 years ago, for the 1st time. She told me how the Nigerian men who asked her out, all kept trying to get her attention by giving her money. She thought it was weird, so she always gave it back.
But that wasn’t what made me laugh. What made me laugh was her finding out that apart from money, Nigerian men have nothing else to offer. And she was super serious when she said that! She deduced that they weren’t intelligent, so most couldn’t hold intellectual conversations.
“Apart from taking girls to restaurants, beer/ice cream parlours, and nightclubs, what else are Nigerian men good for?” She asked. Cos those were the places they all wanted to take her to. And during discussions, their opinions always came from a sexist and misogynistic angle.
Another thing she found super weird was how they kept inviting her to their churches, and offering her marriage. One of them offered to marry her, if she’d agree to become a housewife. They were all perplexed to find that she was neither interested in marriage nor having kids
I’ve said this before, and I’d say it again. In an egalitarian society, where men can’t flex on women with their wealth because women have their own money, cars, houses, etc., there’s really nothing Nigerian men would have that these empowered and independent women would want.
And I’ve seen it with my two eyes. Nigerian men hate it when a woman is empowered, and isn’t impressed by their wealth. It’s why they can’t stand independent women who don’t need their money. In a relationship with such women, they wouldn’t know what to do with themselves.
Also, Nigerian men hate it when a woman doesn’t depend on them for (financial) support. Being a woman’s provider gives them power over said woman. So when a woman becomes independent, they lose that power. Plus, they also love to boast about how they take care of their women.”
