Husbands will be scarce by 2023 – women raise alarm

The women’s group feels that a vacuum is being created, and very soon, we shall be faced with a situation where our educated girl-child will not find a corresponding suitable boy-child to marry.

The National Council of Catholic Women Organisation (NCCWO) has stated that in the in the year 2023, there would be scarcity of good husbands in Nigeria.

The NCCWO National President, Chief Felicia Onyeabo, said this while inaugurating Cor Mariae College, Abuja.

She said, “The future of this country is going to be very bleak for the male-child. How many girls do you see hawking clothes? Go to Onitsha, they are all men. We have looked round and have come to see that there is a neglect of boy’s education. Who are the armed robbers on the streets? They are mostly the boys. Let us concentrate on training our boys.

“The NCCWO feels that a vacuum is being created, and very soon, we shall be faced with a situation where our educated girl-child will not find a corresponding suitable boy-child to marry.

According to Onyeabo, this is partly because more boys drop out of school, apparently because the high rate of unemployment discourages our young boys from appreciating the need to be educated.

“The NCCWO also considers the fact that in the near future, quality husbands will become extremely scarce, with too many highly educated women looking for husbands, and settling for anyhow husbands, just to get married. The result of this type of situation is better imagined and will not augur well for Nigeria.” She said.
