Nollywood actor, Uti Nwachukwu got himself in a messy twitter row when he joined in talking about men being stronger than the female. It was Maureen Chukwujekwu, the new wife of Nollywood actor, Blossom Chukwujekwu, who started it all.
She had posted a picture of three men sitting in a train, while a woman sat on the floor by the train door. The picture was captioned, “Not all males are men.” Uti had said about the picture “If women can agree and accept that they are thee weaker sex, then I am sure more men will stand for them. But as long as you all keep saying you and men are the same…if I don’t stand for my fellow man…why should i stand for you? Are you pregnant? Old or feeble? No . Those are the only reasons why a man should have mercy on the woman (or man!-anybody) sitting on the floor. Women should decide what they want! This is tiring and confusing.
A lady who was angry had said “ignorance is really a disease. Gender equality isn’t about who is stronger or weaker. it is about giving both genders same opportunities rights and privileges in aspects like education, politics etc
