Eberechi Wike, the wife of the Rivers State governor, has weighed in on controversial comments from Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari in which he mocked his wife, Aisha by saying that she “belongs in my kitchen, my living room, and the other room”.
Justice Wike has declared that she belongs to the kitchen, the living room and every room created by God.
The first lady of Port Harcourt made this remark at the 10th Biennial Diocesan Women’s Guild Conference Thanksgiving Service of the Anglican Diocese of the Niger Delta North at Saint Thomas Anglican Church in Diobu, Port Harcourt.
“All women have been through a lot as they strive to build the society . Our contributions to societal development cannot be underestimated,” Mrs. Nyesom-Wike said.
“I belong to the kitchen, I belong to the living room and I belong to every room created by God. So also other women. We are created by God to do more. In my own case as a judicial officer, I also belong to the courtroom. Other women belong to different rooms, depending on their professional calling,” she continued.
“Women are very important to the development of any community. They form a larger percentage of the workforce that keeps the society.”
