Former Niger State Governor, Babangida Aliyu has contradicted President Muhammadu Buhari’s comment that his wife belong in the kitchen.

Speaking at the annual NDEDI lecture series organized by the Newgate College of Technology in Minna over the weekend, Aliyu cited the Qu’ran, insisting that it is the men that belong to the kitchen.

“It is actually the man that should be in the kitchen as provided in the Holy Quran,” adding that the woman should only be in the “inner room” while the men should provide all the needs of the woman, including making purchases from the market for the use of the family.

“Islam does not permit women to go out indiscriminately; they are to be in the house taking care of the children,” he said.

However, Aliyu said in a recession, the husband and the wife should support each other for the good of the family and the society.

He was silent, however, on if women should be allowed to take an active part in politics or make political statements like those made by Mrs. Buhari.

Aliyu also said at the occasion that the era of men taking many wives was gone, noting that those that had married more than one wife and claimed that the scriptures allowed them to do so were ignorant of the tenets.

“What the Book says is that if you can be faithful and fair to two wives, you are allowed to take more than one wife. I don’t see how a man can be faithful and fair to more than one wife.

“We cannot afford to continue with this type of life unless we want to continue like our grandfathers, as marriage is not compulsory. Plan your lives so that you don’t get frustrated along the line,” he said.
