Men belongs to the kitchen too says Babangida

15 November 2016, 11:02

Minna - Former Niger state governor Dr Muazu Babangida Aliyu says men should also be in the kitchen according to the Holy Quaran, Naij reports.

Speaking in Minna over the weekend at the annual NDEDI Lecture Series organized by the Newgate College of Technology in Niger state, Aliyu said that though the place of the woman could be in the kitchen but the “men also belong to the kitchen.”

Aliyu was reacting to President Muhammadu Buhari’s comment on his wife in October which triggered a lot of reactions.

The former governor said that by Islamic tenets men are to go to market and shop for women.

He posited by citing some sections of the Islamic injunctions saying: “It is actually the man that should be in the kitchen as provided for in the Holy Quran.

“The women should only be in the inner room.”

He explained that the men should provide all the needs of the women like making purchases from the market for the use of the family because ‘‘Islam does not permit women to go out indiscriminately they are to be in the house taking care of the children.”

President Buhari while reacting to his wife's explosive interview on BBC Hausa service, said " I don't know the party my wife belongs to but I know she belongs to the kitchen, living room and other room"
