Sharing via his Facebook page, he stated reasons why a woman shouldn’t be permitted to name her son. A man shouldn’t let his emotions sway him to allowing his wife to suggest a name for their male child.

According to him, a woman is capable of naming her male child to honour her ex-boyfriend, whom she had planned the future with. He wrote in honour and remembrance of the man, she will suggest the name of the man for her son.

He advised his fellow men to take the lead and not be carried away with emotions. A woman is born to follow her husband’s lead.
