Nigerians have been reacting to the tweet encouraging men to pay their stay-at-home-wives on a monthly basis, for their domestic chores.
The tweet was from a Twitter user, Ozzy Etomi, who, on Wednesday, revealed her predicament at having to work from home while looking after her 10 month-old baby.
She went on to add that stay-at-home mothers don’t get enough credit for the work that they do. She urged men to pay their wives.
To buttress her point, Etomi tweeted more reasons men should pay women who man the homefront.
Since she shared her viewpoint, lots of reactions have been coming from other Twitter users sharing their own experiences and experiencing their views.
Husband is away, Nanny had an emergency, had to work from home today while handling an extremely precocious 10 month old. I'd pick going to work over staying in with a baby/toddler all day. Stay at home mom's dont get enough appreciation, admiration or respect. PAY YOUR WIVES.— Ozzy Etomi (@ozzyetomi) May 9, 2018
Why are people acting like this is so weird, I know atleast 5 women who get paid monthly by their husbands. One used to get paid as much as a million every month for staying home and taking care of 5 kids. https://t.co/SBGyxFDF7p— Daddy 'Code (@Cohannnnn) May 10, 2018
I don’t understand the people arguing here.— Sally (@is_salsu) May 10, 2018
So your wife, the mother of your kids..... does not deserve to be paid as a stay at home wife? And given the best treatment? This is your wife for Christsake. This shows how a lot of you are! Stingy lots.
Most people won't agree with this but I believe it is needed.. there are so many cases of women being thrown out of the husband house when he dies n she's left with nothing because her husband took care of her without setting aside certain amount of money for her just in case..— C A L I F O N A Y E (@jizziefiree) May 10, 2018
I also think that part of being financially empowered esp when married is to have complete knowledge of the home finances. Esp debts & money going out. Heard too many stories of wives saddled with debt/bills that they were unaware of after hubby gets sick or passes away.— Mukuka (@FixerMs) May 10, 2018
