Marry Two Or More Women To Reduce Prostitution Among Ladies – Imo Govt Appeals To Men

The Imo state Commissioner for Happiness, Mrs Oghechi Ololo, has appealed to men in her State to try to marry two or more women as a way of reducing prostitution and redundancy among Imo state Women.

Speaking in Owerri state capital this morning, Ololo said Imo state has more women than men forcing a lot of unmarried women to commit adultery with other people’s husbands.

The commissioner said according to statistics, out of approximately 3.9 million Imo state indigenes, 3 million are women and only 900, 000 are men.

“I am not forcing you, but just encouraging you to marry two or more wives to reduce on women staying without husbands”, Commissioner Ogechi told a conference of about 14,000 men who were receiving training in various life skills in the commercial capital.

“Our women are crying every day due to lack of men to marry and support them economically hence they engage in prostitution. So please try to work hard and be productive so that you can help our women by marrying two or more wives provided you are able to provide for their basic needs”.

“As government, we shall be giving some small incentives to such men provided you don’t abuse your wives”, said Commissioner Ogechi.

Imo state has the highest level of prostitution in South East among young girls and women who are not in school or formal employment.
