A traditional African Religion practitioner, popularly known as Chi Marine Temple Ofiafuluagu, has taken to his Facebook handle to state reasons why men who have female children should be grateful to God.
He said when his father was ill, his two sisters left their job to stay with him. He went on to add that his other sister also left her business to work shifts with her sister in taking care of their father. But None of them, the boys left their business or work to take care of their father.
He stated that men who complain that they have only daughters are being foolish. According to Ofiafuluagu, each girl child is worth three sons!
He is of the opinion that having a daughter can prolong one's life. He also stated that daughters will not get into as much trouble as sons.
"She is less likely to be disobedient. When she leaves your house, she will remember you. If you are too old to leave alone, she will move you into her home, matrimonial or not. Go and thank God for having daughters!" he said.
Chi Marine Temple Ofiaafuluagu whose real name is Ikubor Chinedu Tony, is a herbalist, native doctor (Spiritual doctor) and a traditionalist.
He is the chief priest of chi marine temple in Asaba. Ofiafuluagu is adjudged by his fans as the most powerful dibia in Asaba.
His statement has generated mixed reactions among his followers. While some people support his statement, especially women, others were of the opinion that it was his personal opinion based on his experience.
