Multi millionaire and husband to actress Regina Daniels, Ned Nwoko has revealed why he decided to go into polygamy, the business man also disclosed why he prefers getting married to young women.
Ned revealed all this during an interview with BBC Igbo.
According to him, the law permitting the average northerners to marry more than one wife helps the society in preventing young women from going into prostitution.
“The average Northerner marrying two, three, four women, they are helping the society because it is the economic downturn that has affected so many women who you see doing prostitution and all that. But the fallacy of it all is that Christianity does not allow that in the South and yet, the average Southern man has 10 girlfriends.”
He also credited the large population of the Northerners to their polygamous nature which makes them majority in the country.
“I love my culture as I know it, not as they are trying to dilute it. Igbo culture is wonderful and should be promoted the way it has always been. But even looking at that, look at your population in Nigeria and what I will call economy of marriage, as an Igbo man with one wife, four children, a Northerner has four wives with five children each, in the next 10 years, 20 years, imagine the population of the Northerner.”
