Be angry with your poverty instead of complaining about your wife’s poor cooking abilities — Pastor Ibiyeomie
General Overseer of Salvation Ministry, Bishop David Ibiyeomie has lambasted Nigerian men who constantly complain about their wives’ poor cooking abilities.
The renowned gospel preacher, during a sermon on Sunday, asked men who cannot afford to hire a chef to blame their poverty rather than laying complaints against their wives.
According to David Ibiyeomie, he stopped his wife from kitchen activities when he became rich and could afford to hire a chef.
“When you hear a man say that my wife does not know how to cook, he is yet to understand love. Let me be very raw with you. Hire somebody to teach her and it is not even compulsory that she cooks for you, can’t you get a chef? It is your poverty that is disturbing you.
I told my wife to stop cooking. I told her that God has blessed me to a point that you will never enter the kitchen. Where did you hear that a woman must cook till she d*es? Just be angry with your poverty. You employ a chef.
If you can’t afford that yet, work around teaching her and stop spreading her weakness all around. No one is perfect. The scripture calls the women weaker vessels, it means men are the weak ones. There can’t be weaker if there is no weak,” he said.
Nigerian men are reacting to the pastor’s message. Many of them are angry that the pastor is making excuses for women who cannot cook.
“Women knowing how to cook is part of Africa’s tradition and should be sustained. It’s a disgrace in Africa for a woman not to know how to cook.
I know she can’t be perfect in all things but knowing how to cook is essential as a wife.
A woman who loves her husband and wants her husband to love and cherish her the more will always want to cook for her husband even if they have house maids.
I know sometimes, she might be busy or so, but she would always want to cook for her husband or even supervise her maids cooking for her husband. So it’s not about being poor or rich.”
