Pastor Enoch Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God is trending on Twitter Nigeria after a simple birthday post in honour of his wife went viral.
Yesterday was Pastor Folu Adeboye’s birthday, and her General Overseer husband took to social media to celebrate his virtous wife.
In a manner of celebration, Pastor Enoch Adeboye had written:
“She is a powerful woman, I know that. She has many people who take instructions from her but as powerful as she is and even though she has seen me in my weakest moments, I have no doubt that I am her head.
“It does not matter what is on her itinerary if I say I would like you to go with me to so and so place the best she can do is try to convince me otherwise.”
Adeboye, who stressed on women being submissive to their husbands, asserted: “No matter how educated or successful you are, your husband is your head and you must regard him as such at all times.
“It is a terrible thing for a husband to feel his wife is his head. Many men are misbehaving in their marriages simply because they want to establish that they are the head of their wives.”
He further disclosed that despite his wife’s busy schedules, she handles the cooking and serving of the food.
“As busy as she is, she still cooks my meals and serves me herself. Many young ladies these days leave everything to the house help.
“My wife still trims my nails for me. There was a time when I was a teacher and was staying far from town.
“She had to cut my hair during that period. She is the only partner of the Adeboye Corporation; she doesn’t delegate her primary duties to anyone else. Just like the virtuous woman described in Proverbs 31:1-31, I safely rest on my wife.”
Some Twitter users have, however, expressed mixed reactions over Adeboye’s post, with some calling him out for making the post about himself instead of his wife.
