Nigerians on social media are challenging a popular pastor who suggested men should not marry women who cannot cook.
The leader of Nigeria’s biggest church, Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, made the statement on Twitter on Monday:
My sons, don’t marry a girl who is worldly. If you do, you have carried what you’ll worship for the rest of your life.

After the tweet his name became the top trending topic on Twitter in Nigeria.
Nigerian social influencer Toke Makinwa said it is in men’s best interests to learn to cook:
This is not the first time the pastor’s comments have caused heated debate.
He recently advised one of his followers to sack his female secretary who he lusted after in order to save his marriage.
