Reverend Azubuike Mgbikeh of the Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, Akwa, Anambra State, has frowned at
women who abandon their responsibilities to their house-helps.
According to TheNation, the cleric made his position known yesterday while delivering a message marking this
year’s mothering Sunday, themed, “The Virtuous Woman and The Home”, taking from Proverb 31:10-31.
He said one of the qualities of the virtuous woman was her ability to cater for the welfare of the family, including
preparing food for the husband and children.
Rev. Azubuike said, “It’s unfortunate that many women don’t know how to cook. That’s why they will start campaigning
for house-maid as soon as they get married. Don’t allow house-maid to cook for your husbands.
A virtuous woman will not do that. If the house help must prepare any meals, not soup and stew.”
He also enumerated other qualities of the virtuous woman to include caring for the poor and needy, modest in
character, speech and dressing, supportive and hard-working.
