Ned Nwoko, a politician and billionaire from Nigeria, has claimed that polygamy-rejecting men are to blame for society’s high prostitution rate.
In a conversation with The Guardian, Ned Nwoko, who has four wives—among them the well-known actress Regina Daniels—said that by getting many wives, he and the Ooni of Ife are serving Nigeria.
In contrast to a monogamous man who lavishes his time and money on girlfriends, he asserts that a man with multiple wives focuses more on them.
“Many women are out there on their own without husbands, especially in the southern part of the country, and there is a high level of prostitution.
“What some of our girls do to make ends meet is regrettable and if our men emulate their northern counterparts by having more than one wife, that could probably change the situation.
“The man, who has three wives, for instance, concentrates on them and his children; every money he makes is spent on the family and he is more likely not to have any girlfriends or concubines. The money those with several girlfriends spend on them is a gift, not an investment in the family.”
“My grandfather and the Ooni’s grandfather and the then Olowo of Owo took many photographs together. So, the Ooni and I have that kind of common background, because our grandfathers were kings and served Nigeria in that capacity. And we are now also serving Nigeria by having many wives,” he said.
