Daddy Freeze’s partner, Benedicta Elechi has questioned why Nigeria joined the rest of the world to celebrate International Women’s Day.
The chef whose ex-husband was awarded N5M against Daddy Freeze for adultery noted that it should be a day of sober reflection given the reality of women in Nigeria.
Benedicta shared medical report which she claimed was proof that she suffered domestic violence in her marriage to Mr Odekina.
She opined that it was hypocritical of Nigerian women to celebrate IWD but insisted that it should be a call to action to right the wrongs against women.
“Swipe for medical report on battery.
Why should we join the rest of the world in celebrating ‘International women’s day’?
We live in a country where the fundamental rights of women are nonexistent.
Today is a day, were women all over the world, come together to celebrate the social, economic,cultural and political achievements of women.
We should be observing a moment of silence for the fearless women, who fought to the death for the rights of women and children and raising our glasses to a toast,to all the
strong women that have fought and continue to fight for the abolishment of archaic practices and the reformation of laws that have enslaved women for decades in unison.
But no, as women, living in this part of the world, it will be hypocritical for us to to partake in this celebration.
This day should mark a call to action for accelerating gender parity, gender equality and reforms that will protect our fundamental rights as women.
We owe it to the girl child.
Benedicta Elechi”, she wrote.
