General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Adeboye, drew the ire of a cross-section of twitter users after he made a post celebrating his wife on her birthday.

The cleric took to his twitter handle to appreciate his ‘powerful woman’ wife who in spite of her powers sees him as the head.

Pastor Adeboye also made more direct statements on the need for a wife to be submissive when he said that “No matter how educated or successful you are, your husband is your head and you must regard him as such at all times.

Speaking further on his wife’s roles, the Pastor noted that she still cooks his meals and serves him herself. He also disclosed that his wife  “still trims my nails for me.”

The cleric’s twitter post was apparently made to teach morals but it turned out to achieve an entirely negative effect on a section of users on the microblogging platform.

Nigerian twitter space is not alien to agitations by Feminists who attempt to correct the traditional role being assigned to women. Whether intentionally or not, Pastor Adeboye’s post appears to strongly go against feminist ideals.

Expectedly this led to scathing criticisms of the popular Pastor by those who hold a separate view from the pastor usually called ‘Twitter Feminists’ by many Twitter users.
