This is exactly what I’m talking about! When I saw these pictures of UBA chairman, Tony Elumelu, with his new born set of twin boys, I was happy O, but I still shook my head… So him too?!
I heard he already has 5 daughters, so that means his wife would have still continued on a ‘suicide’ mission, if she hadn’t birthed these male kids?!
It just infuriates me when I think about how poorly the girl-child is thought of by our society. She has no major place in the ‘heart’ of this same society up till now. The quest for a male child is on a high… Mscheew!
You think your daughters are blind or deaf? You think they don’t see how a male child is preferred to them? You think that their self-esteem or self-worth will not be tampered with? And you think that these same daughters will not do same in their marriages?!
After all these, why won’t we have all sorts of violence against women and nothing done about it! It’s in this same society that disregards the worth of the girl-child, that you will see girls of all ages been raped or sex-slaved, even physically abused, and nothing will be done.
The men are not only to be blamed, even the women are guilty, the women who in actual sense should uphold the honour of a woman, no matter the circumstances.
If not, can someone explain to me why Tony Elumelu and his Dr wife should be having more babies at this their old age?! When his wife had all his baby girls, it wasn’t news (except maybe the last girl because of their expectations of a male child then) but they have boys, and it’s compulsory that the world knows! *Continnuu!
