Sept 19, 2014 – Pictures: Nigerian Women Working Hard To Provide For Husbands In Delta State

Some men may not like this but the fact remains that most women in the rural area of Delta State are the breadwinners for their families.

These hardworking women can be seen on the road riding their Okadas to the farm while their husbands are relaxing at home drinking palm wine and ogogoro.

These pictures were taken by Emmanuel Osodi, a Delta-based photojournalist

    It is a fact.The men are lazy.What you call ogogoro is actually called ‘sapele water’.The men sit down whereas the women do all the hard work.So shameful.

    In this jet age? This is an act of wickedness. These are women who will still get home to cook and at night such man will still want to have his way on bed. What kind of tradition is that.

    Those men who are just seated and waiting for their wives to serve them are fools who need deliverance. Honestly who can you turn your wife into a being that will be working for you, whereby you seat back and fold your long arms which you always use for stealing. idiots.
