Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II has reacted to the issue of domestic violence and his words will touch you. Read below…
“Truth be told, a man wouldn’t want someone hitting his daughter, so he shouldn’t hit someone else’s daughter. When a man hits a woman, it gives him a measurement of his control. He is not treating her with respect.
Instead of her being his equal, she allows him to place himself above her while she becomes the peasant. And the only reason why this happens is because those women allow it.
The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother. There are many excuses men use to justify hitting women, but none of them are legitimate.
Some would even go as far as saying, “That’s how I was brought up. So this is normal.” This is NOT normal. It’s a mental sickness that needs to be rectified & We need to act on #GenderEquality against #DomesticViolence,” he wrote on his Instagram page.
