Andrea Ekeng Inyang, the special assistant to Ben Ayade, Rivers state governor, on strategic communication, has advised men not to marry ladies who drink beer in public.
The governor’s aide gave his opinion on marriage in a post on his Facebook page on Monday.
“Don’t marry any woman that sits in public to drink Gulder beer. You won’t find peace in that marriage,” he wrote.
Public figures in Nigeria have had varying opinions about what kind of woman makes an ideal bride.
In 2016, Enoch Adeboye, general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), advised youths of the church against marrying ladies who are weak in prayers.
“Marry a prayer warrior! Any girl who cannot pray for one hour non-stop, don’t marry her,” he said.
“Don’t marry a girl who is lazy! You pay her family a surprise visit, and you see how she is doing… If she is lazy when she is single, what would happen if she is married?
“Don’t marry a girl who cannot cook, she needs to know how to do chores and cook because you cannot afford to be eating out all the time. Don’t marry a girl, who is worldly, if you do, you have carried what you will worship for the rest of your life.
“Don’t forget what I am telling you. It’s very important. There are those who I have advised before but ignored my advice. They later came back to me and said: ‘You warned us’. I am warning you now.”
