Igbo women are lazy and don’t want to work for their own money says Noble Igwe
A Nigerian blogger, Mr. Noble Igwe said that Igbo women are lazy, they don’t want to work but wait for their fathers and husbands to die so that they can inherit their properties.
According to him, no culture is holding Igbo women from achieving things and building houses anywhere they want instead of waiting for their men to die so that they can bear Ori Aku without working hard for their money.
Noble Igwe is also the founder and Chief Executive Officer of 360 Group. Read his post below:
“Igbo women are lazy, don’t want to work. They just want to sit back and enjoy their husbands hard earned money.
They want to inherit their husbands properties and then inherit from their fathers houses as well while they do nothing but answer ‘ori aku’.
See Yoruba women, they are hardworking and build houses. They are not really trying to fight for their fathers house in Ibadan. When they want to make changes, they do but Igbo women will make it seem like someone is holding them down.
The Yoruba woman is a go getter, breaking boundaries, doing new things everyday and she doesn’t even need a law to back her; just her belief and living life on her terms. Guess what, they don’t need anybody’s permission.
Everyday, you are seeking for permission from your village to thrive in Lagos. Build a house in Lagos and inherit it and nobody from your village will come to inherit it.
There’s no culture holding you back from achieving things. Why are you so in on inheriting something when you can build yours?
Why is the topic always on inheritance? Can’t you work on your own? You don’t need a husband to inherit. Have you seen Hausa women fighting for inheritance? No, they go out and build.
No wonder most people think that Igbo women are greedy. The argument can never be ‘how my Igbo culture stopped me from buying land in Lagos’, it is always about what to gain from patriarchy ridden people.
Kings, find you a woman that is ready to work hard with you, to leave things equally for your children, not the Igbo woman that is waiting for you to die first so that she can inherit and called the head of home just by being Ori Aku.
Tomorrow, you will see other women tweet about how their mothers willed things to them and how it helped them do better. These tweets don’t come from Igbo women. They and their mothers are waiting for their fathers to die first.
Ask yourself, what have you done to change the life of the girl child in your community, is it Igbo men that are stopping you too?
In conclusion, any gender can hold any gender. While some of our concerns are true, the real change comes from doing and not holding the sins of the fathers over all Igbo men.
Discuss issues as it relates to particular people, communities, villages and the Igbo land at large.
The Igbo man is flawed just like every other man but you can’t deny the work that the new generation Igbo man is doing towards changing some of these narratives.”
This guy should speak for himself and the women in his family. Is his wife a lazy leech who is waiting for him to die so that she can inherit his properties?
How many Igbo men are comfortable with their wives making money, creating wealth and buying houses?
How many Igbo men are comfortable with their wives becoming financially independent?
This guy should just go and rest.
