Unknown to many Nigerians, the Majority Leader of the House of Representatives, Hon. Ado Doguwa caused a stir in the Green Chamber on Wednesday. While his colleagues were angry over the insecurity in the country, Doguwa desecrated the hallowed chamber with his “powerfulness” in the other room. The emphasis with which he was overstretching his ability in bed revealed the “insensitivity” of the lawmaker to the security challenges at hand. His derision of women like chattels has also attracted odious comments from feminists.
Doguwa incurred the wrath of the public on Wednesday after he was inaugurated by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila.
He said: “Mr. Speaker, I will let you know that with me today are my four respected wives. Halima, Umma stand up, Binta … should stand up. Mr. Speaker, Honourable members, I have asked them to rise here to respect the House on behalf of my family and one other reason, to let you know that when members call me a powerful man, I am not only powerful on the floor of the House, I am also powerful at home.
These four wives, Mr. Speaker, what I meant by asking them to rise up is to demonstrate to members of the House that when you call me a powerful parliamentarian, I am not only powerful on the floor, I am also powerful at home because I deal with four wives.
These four wives you are seeing have produced 27 children for me; these four wives you are seeing have produced 27 kids for me and I am still counting.”
