Nigeria: Why Nigerian Women Are No Longer Submissive to Men – Pete Edochie


The actor says when he was younger, women would never insult their men as is commonly practised today.

Veteran Nollywood actor, Pete Edochie, has said Nigerian men of today are weak and that’s why women can afford to talk to them as they please.

In a video circulated on social media on Monday, the 73-year-old actor could be heard saying that married women are no longer submissive to their husbands.

He said, “If you drop your father’s name to answer the name of your husband, you are bound to be submissive to him. How can a woman go out of the house in the morning, come back in the night reeking of alcohol and the husband demands to know why she is late in coming home and what does she say? “If you know what is good for you, just get out of my way let me go, and sleep.”

“They can afford to say that today because the men of today are very weak. If she said it in our own time, she will never be in one piece again and I mean every word of what I am saying.”

The revered actor added that when he was younger and newly wedded, women were lovable and would never insult their men as is commonly practiced today

He said, “We got married when men were men and our women didn’t insult us that way. The way women insult men these days, I begin to imagine, is not our character. Our women used to be beautiful things we loved, that we loved to hold close that we loved to cuddle. Today they are turning into vixens, what is really going on?”
