Popular Nigerian clergyman and relationship coach, Kingsley Okonkwo has questioned why some men are still single at the age of 24.
Preaching in his local church recently, Pastor Kingsley asserted that he doesn’t understand why some men are above 24 and not married.
According to him, there is no justification for being single at 24 because by that age, animals have already become grandparents.
He added that in developed and civilized countries, children move out of their parents’ homes at the age of 18 and become independent and financially responsible.

His statement has sparked an outrage on social media, with many accusing him of putting young men and women under pressure.
