Mrs Njoku, who has been married for 11 years, condemned women who are pressuring others to get settle down with a man.

She wrote; “Dear married women, Enough! Marriage is not an achievement. Finding the RIGHT partner is. Give the singles space to make the biggest decisions of their lives and find GOOD partners in peace. Over 60% of couples claim happiness often because of societal expectations.

That was how Ifeoma was pushed to marry nonsense. Every weekend na hospital appointment for black eye, and spiritual warfare against physical side chicks. Yet she is among those trolling single girls for the same marriage. Rest Biko. Focus on the Economy! And Let the singles BREATHE.”
