  1. I disagree,uneducated women are even more cultured and more creative than the pompous educated ones.
    I’m a medical doctor happily married to an illiterate for over 30years.
    If I marry your educated fools, I would have filed for divorce

    • You are probably a control freak. You want an illiterate woman because you can’t handle an educated one and someone who worship the ground you walk one. I guess your kids aren’t going to be educated.

  2. Well as a professor, i think u should have done your check and balance before making this statement. If men refuse to marry an illiterate women,Then who will marry them ?.I think you are speaking for yourself and not for the general public. All the illiterate women out there should go and commit suicide right ? I think you have over read an unnecessary book it is getting to your brain, with due respect.

  3. How can you call educated women fools because you are married to an uneducated one, everyone is entitled to their choice, stop making generalising comment oga dokita.

  4. I GUESS this professor has been drawn into the web of that cliché which goes something like this: “Educate a man, educate an individual. Educate a woman, educate a nation.” This is yet another of the many erroneous assumptions I can’t just tell where else they emerged from if not the mendacious mills of a feministic philosophy. This man is heavily wrong like a ten-tonne dead weight. I dare even say that educating a woman tends to make her less submissive to her husband. Doesn’t this condition now predispose a family to violence? What is this professor trying to draw from where it doesn’t exist?

  5. To some men the beauty of a woman is only noticed in those they can easily cheat and the women would not protest so it is no surprise such comment is made. But it is true that the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world, and acknowledged or not, the quality of the mothers’ outlook impact upon and often influence their children. The prof has a good point!

  6. Dr. Duada shows limitations in his thinking. Just because you prefer a ‘yes’ woman who cannot challenge you on any level does not mean you should call educated women fools! I am sure your doctorate degree was from a back village university, as anybody who is educated to that level must be able to comport themselves to show decorum in public forums.

  7. This woman na pure social studies teacher! I don’t expect a professor to sound too elementary, any research to ascertain the fact(s)? Prof. Bilikisu should listen to Fela’s song ( LADY) and get the main idea. Education is important,but it does not liberate everyone from bad behavior.

  8. Typical Nigerian. A doctor calling educated fellows fools. We are all self centered. Simply because he is married to an illiterate he believes that educated women are fools. Either of the women is not a fool. What the prof was saying is that the educated woman knows the value of education and will try as much as possible to guide her children. Those of us who are offsprings of illiterate mothers are not doing bad either. But there is a clear difference in terms of understanding the requirements of educational pursuits.

  9. @ Dr Dauda Ibrahim, i totally agree with your views and opinion, just to crown it all Educated women have the worse of children in our country, cause the un-opportune d instead of the word illiterate, the un-opportune woman will never want her child to follow her part.

  10. @ Dr Dauda Ibrahim, are you sure you are a doctor? Are you an academic Doctor or medical doctor? I am not sure that in this age or era that we are in that somebody with a status of either medical or academic Doctor will boast of marrying or staying with an illiterate wife. You are not sincere with yourself.

  11. She is full of herself with her so-called Education. This is an advice she should give to her children and siblings and not to the public. Marriage is a private issue. Whom to marry is a personal choice. Her choice is based on education and another mans choice probably is based on Beauty, character, sex or even Family Background. Some men dont even want to marry educated women because they are more difficult to handle than uneducated ones.Supposing she is educated and she is like an ice fish in bed or she is very full of herself, arrogant and difficult to handle.

  12. In my view there are various ways of understanding what this Dr. is saying, said or trying to say. Firstly every single reply tends to focus of the word “educated” without going further to see or read what the Dr. was actually saying in using education as an adjective. I do not personally agree that there is such thing as an educated woman. All women are educated though may not be academic qualification but being a woman alone carries with it a degree of natural education. However, if it is academic education then going to school alone could provide a woman with academic qualifications but does not necessarily provide her the education she requires to effectively manage her home and children, her husband and so forth. Furthermore, education does not equals ability to clean the house and ensuring that germs are kept away. It follows not thereof, that being an illiterate means your children will not go to school or be academically educated. Going back to this argument, it could be said that being educated means being able to take certain informed decisions which would and could be different to the same decision being taken by uneducated person, in all, a decision is taken and it depends on the outcome of such decision. It would have been helpful if the Doctor had addressed her mind to “being educated” rather than “been a woman and being educated makes that woman a better wife” I think she had opened a can of worm which could be difficult to close.

  13. I do not think men marrying educated women is the solution to ending violent,poverty,thuggery and hunger in our society. Actually the professor may have based his counsel on fact or statistic on ground in Zamfara state. However,I do found a number of problem with this advice. If educated or non-educated men continue to marry only educated women,the question now is, who are those going to marry the many uneducated women that are in our society at large? Marrying educated women has not spell the end of violence ,poverty,thuggery and hunger across Nigeria either. Though it has it advantage but rejecting uneducated women entirely as a marriage partner is not the solution to those things the professor mentioned. This is why I consider that advice to be deeply flawed. I think the professor need to stress the need for girl-child education not just in Zamfara state but in Nigeria as a whole. He should use His office to give better advice to Nigerian Government to help in providing our young ones both boys and girls with free or affordable education regardless of their religion so that by the time they grow up into adulthood they will become better educated citizens of Nigeria contributing to peace,progress and development of our nation. Such transformation no doubt will go a long way in ending the high level of illiteracy among women in our society. I think this is what should be the advice of the professor and not the other way he put it.

  15. I have worked with over 200 women both educated and uneducated , rich or poor who experienced domestic violence…one of the main reason is power stRuggles. When one person want to control and dominate the othe. ..men or women

  16. You don’t know what you are saying..my question goes like this are you telling us all the alliterate women will no be married? And after that who is going to marriage them?always control your mouth and before you outer a thinks before you talks next time

  17. what every home need is love peace and hardworking, i don’t believe in that of marring graduate that is not homely, a graduate without work,a lazy graduate,can’t farm,no fear of God, can’t respect my parents, full of nagging.i rather go for uneducated and open a business for her provided she can give me all i want in marriage.
