|Women Not Subordinate To Men - Osinbajo by etcsines: 2:57pm On Jun 16|
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Sunday urged men to love and honor women, reminding them that women are not subordinate to them.
According to him, women are created equal to men.
The Vice President made the declaration while speaking to State House correspondents after celebrating this year’s Fathers’ Day at the Aso Villa Chapel, Abuja.
He was joined at the service by his mother, Mrs. Olubisi Osinbajo, Deputy President of the Senate, Ovie Omo-Agege, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr. Boss Mustapha, and others.
He said, “I think the responsibility of the father is incredible indeed and I think what is most important is to teach our men, young men growing up, that they must honor women, not just their wives.
“Of course, you must honor and love your wives, but I think that it is very important that we honor women.
“We don’t treat them as subordinate to us; they are created equal to men.
“But most importantly, we must honor them and recognize their role as partners, not just in families, but in society as well.”
Streaming that men have important roles to play in the society, he said that it is not the ability to have a child that makes a man father.
“It is not the ability to father a child, the ability to have a child that makes you a father; it is the courage to bring up one, ability to raise one.
“That’s what really makes you a father and I think the responsibilities of fatherhood are so many, whether one is a biological father or whether you are one who wants to take care of other children.
“I think that all of us, as men, have a role to play in the life of so many, not just our biological children but so many of them who have no fathers, even to some who have fathers to who we have responsibility to set example to lead exemplary life, to bring them up as scripture says in the way of the Lord.”
Also speaking, the Deputy President of the Senate, Ovie Omo-Agege, who earlier took the 1st Reading of the service taken from Malachi 1:3-6, said “it is not what we tell our children, but the lives we lead and they see us lead” that is important in the life of fathers.
He said this would help a lot in the formative years of children and makes them responsible members of society.
On his part, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr. Boss Mustapha, said the Fathers’ Day was not about the celebration but a reminder of the role men have to play in their families as the physical and spiritual head.
“It’s not about the celebration; I think it’s a constant reminder about our responsibilities as fathers.
“We are reminded of the fact that, first, we are the priests of our homes; so we ought to pray for our families.
“And when you have children that are aware that as a father, you are praying for them, the chances of their drifting will not be there because they know that the eyes of their father are constantly on them.
“Constantly, you are reminding God that he has entrusted you with this responsibility and you ought to live up to the responsibility.
“The second thing is that, as fathers, we are supposed to exemplify the life of Christ in the lives of our children because we are just like letters that our children read on a daily basis.
“It is not about how much we say, or what say; it is about our lifestyle.
“The other reminder is that we are breadwinners in our families and we ought to provide for our families.”
Mr. Mustapha had earlier taken the 2nd Reading of the Service taken from Exodus 17:8-16
Delivering the sermon, the Chaplain of the Aso Villa Chapel, Reverend Seyi Malomo, advised fathers to be sensitive to discern any aggression that could harm their families.
Malomo also said fathers should lead their children in spiritual exercises like fasting and prayer, reminding them that their actions have direct implications for their children.
Prayers were said for President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President Osinbajo, the legislature and the judiciary in Nigeria.
The congregation also prayed for unity, peace, and progress of Nigeria.
The highlight of the service was the presentation of gifts to President Buhari, Vice President Osinbajo, President of the Senate, Speaker of the House of Representatives and others.

Women have never been subordinate to men. Gender differences don't mean inequality, just as equality (in this case) doesn't mean absence of difference.
Inequity exist/has been in existence in some places or a times though, and it's usually perpetrated by the domineering (not dominant) and/or greedy entity(ies) of both genders, so let equity be the bond that will always hold the difference(s).

A Mace thief is in the Church??

|Re: Women Not Subordinate To Men - Osinbajo by SageMK: 4:10pm On Jun 16|
Even though I hate to admit it, you are right.
Nigeria is patriachial in nature.
Our country is a mirror image of our traditional society.
That's why his oga at the top relegated women (his wife) to the kitchen & oza room. The same reason is also why Nigerian men tag successful women — Ashawo .
Unless we do away with our traditional mentality like our VP, the women in our lives will continue to be treated as misfit and second class citizens. This calls for a change.

Not to mention how these same politicians are the same ones sponsoring Abuja big girls. Who in the country sees women as subordinates more than Abuja politicians that pay for them like commodities?
This is too funny.

Mr. Vice President sir, honour is given to whom honour is due.
No more, no less.
That's all I can

This is where I cannot agree with Mr Vice President, Women are not and will never be equals with the Men, Biblically it is stated clearly, please I want to ask a question, can a lioness be compared to a lion, a wise man once said"until a woman can stand up to piss and at the same time ,write their name on the wall, they can be considered equals" In the family women expect the man to lead, even during sex the man is naturally on top, if there is an house invasion by robbers, who runs out first to protect the family, who chops the most beating for doing superman (The Man), yet women want to be equals, They expect us to open the door for them, they expect us to carry them romantically, they expect us to do better in Bed, many of us are term Maga and Mugu and yet they want to be equals, kuku kill us nigbayen. Until Women can do the things men do and do it well, we the men of the world refuse to grant them any sort of equality. Smh vigorously.
Note: This is a note of warning to those confused feminist on Nairaland, Quote me and be thunderfied. Be eating banana and be claiming feminist, I pity your condition.

Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands.

Stupid Nigerians! Can't remember us celebrating Fathers Day when we were kids. The Americans came up with all these nonsense days for commercial capitalist gains, so their people can go out to spend money on gift in order to enhance commerce. Now I see every tom, dick and Harry sending Fathers and Mothers day wish ... kuku turn your country to America's colony.
For us Africans, everyday is mother and fathers day.
