A Nigerian woman, Uduak Victor, has taken to Facebook to narrate how her father sent her mother packing for not conceiving a male child.
According to her, her mother was thrown out of the house because she had five female children and no male child. Interestingly, years down the line, the female children are the ones taking care of him.
Uduak made this disclosure on Facebook while responding to a mother of four girls who sought the advise of netizens after her husband threatened to marry a second wife if she fails to give birth to a male child.

Speaking from her experience, Uduak encouraged the embattled mother not to worry about her husband’s verdict and instead focus on raising her female children because they are her future.
“Madam leave that thing and take care of ur treasures very well, my father that had the same mentality, threw my mum out but to God be the glory we the girls are the one feeding him today we were (5) female and we are all married, that y I love my mum very much.” she wrote.
Regha, who gave this counsel in a Twitter post, told people not to be too trusting because we live in a wicked world.
