Reno Omokri, a well-known Nigerian activist, has recommended men take charge of their children’s upbringing rather than relying only on their spouses.
According to Reno Omokri, God has given man the task of “doing the work,” and the woman was created solely to assist him in this task.
Reno Omokri, who has a verified Twitter account, tweeted on the social microblogging platform. He backed his assertion with reference to the Holy Bible. He stated that women are helpers and not work horses and that cooking, cleaning, dishwashing among others are the man’s work.
“It was Adam, the man, that God ordered to do the work on Earth-Genesis 2:15. The woman, Eve, was created by God to help him-Genesis 2:20. God did NOT create Eve to do the work for Adam. Women are created to be HELPERS, not WORK HORSES. Therefore, every work, including cooking, cleaning, dish washing, shopping for groceries and most importantly, child raising, is the man’s work. The woman is to HELP the man, not replace him as the person commanded by God to do the work. It is not manly to leave your wife to do all that work. It is a disobedience to a direct command from God!”
Reno’s assertion about the work of men in a marriage has attracted several reactions from netizens. Some claim his assertion will lead many marriages astray.

Another Twitter user wrote; If that was the case men should have been responsible for carrying of pregnancy, breastfeeding and others. Abi Now, the woman will just play the role of housemate
