Yoruba Nollywood actress Foluke Daramola, in an interview with New Telegraph has opined that men and women ought not to have equal rights in the society.
Voicing her opinion on the current clamour for gender equality in Nigeria, the light skinned actress said, “I’m sorry I don’t think men and women should have equal rights in this case. I think the male should have more than the female, but it should be with proportion, maybe on a ration of 60 to 40.”
A gender equality bill brought before the Senate was thrown out after it could not gather enough support.
Daramola who is likely to rile her fellow women with her comments continued, “The reason why I think so is because we women tend to be extremely domineering when it comes to issues and sometimes sentimental. Men can be detailed even though we are sometimes. So, there are proportions in all these things.”
“Even though I’m a woman rights activist, I still believe in the place of a woman and a man. The man is suppose to be a step ahead of the woman; you can never take that away,” she concluded.
