I was so foolish I quarrelled with my wife for giving me girls – Omisore
A former member of the Lagos State House of Assembly and advertising professional, Ipoola Omisore, has revealed how he once fought his wife for giving birth to only girls.
In an interview with Punchng, when asked if his first child’s gender was what he initially wanted, he said:
“I belonged to one of the foolish men who believed in the male children. .
That day, I was happy because I didn’t care what the gender was. Later, I got more girls and I became sad. I turned against my wife who was now late. I was angry that she gave me girls. .
But on reflection today, I have 15 children; 13 graduates, one undergraduate and a young boy. I want to say that in terms of care, answering to needs and having passion for one’s parents, none can beat the girls. .
All my boys like me but not five per cent near that of my girls. For men, who are still foolish like I was, I advise them to have a rethink. It’s proven that female children love their fathers more than their mothers, while the males are closer to their mothers.”
