The wife of the Rivers State Governor, Justice Eberechi Suzzette Nyesom-Wike has reacted to the recent comment by President Muhammadu Buhari that his wife belongs in his kitchen, Living room and the other room.
She backed the President, by saying that she belongs to the kitchen, the living room and every room created by God.
She was speaking at the 10th Biennial Diocesan Women’s Guild Conference Thanksgiving Service of the Anglican Diocese of the Niger Delta North in Saint Thomas Anglican Church, Diobu, Port Harcourt on Sunday.
Justice Suzzette Nyesom-Wike said:
All women have been through a lot as they strive to build the society. Our contributions to societal development cannot be underestimated. I belong to the kitchen, I belong to the living room and I belong to every room created by God. So also other women.
We are created by God to do more. In my own case as a judicial officer, I also belong to the courtroom. Other women belong to different rooms, depending on their professional calling. Women are very important to the development of any community. They form a larger percentage of the workforce that keeps the society,” she added.
Recall that the President reactions was in response to an ‘explosive’ interview his wife granted the BBC, where she stated that she may not back her husband at the next election .
In his response, the president, who was in Germany on a three-day visit laughed and replied, “she belongs to my kitchen and living room.”
