Following President Muhammadu Buhari’s infamous speech that his wife Aisha “belongs to the kitchen…and the other room,” lots of people have criticized the Nigerian leader over the now viral statement.
The latest person to disagree with the motion is veteran Nollywood actor Zack Orji.
He said during an interview on the weekend:
“I did domestic chores and I still do. In fact, my son slept on my chest the day they returned from the hospital.
“For me, a man should be willing to do housework because it is his house.I wash the dishes sometimes. It is not about showing love for one’s wife or one’s family. I just believe that since it is my house, it is something I should do.
“Also, when the children see such a thing, they will endeavour to emulate it. It will become a habit.
“Sometimes, whenever my children are reading, I will pack my plates myself to the kitchen after eating rather than disturb their reading. We have no house maids. My children sweep, cook and do other house chores.
“There are no cut-out roles for my wife or anybody in my house. There is no rule that says my wife must cook or do other things.
“I wash the toilet sometimes since everything one needs to clean the toilet is there.”
