The Hidden Secret Of The Benue Woman
I was highly disappointed reading a debate recently about Benue women being given to visitors as “kola”. Well, thank God for the person who vindicated Benue women! She was not even from Benue State but has lived in Benue all her life. According to the English Dictionary and Thesaurus, a woman is “an adult female person”, however, I refer to all females, youths and adults alike, as women.
A woman is supposed to complement the man in all ramifications, though most women are unmarried today either for religious or social reasons. Regardless, they have always been known as agents of change in society.
Women in most societies today are known to be dependent on their husbands or families for livelihood. This is not the case with the Benue woman, who on the contrary, is industrious and very hardworking. Women in Benue State handle hoes to till the soil by themselves, dominate the business environment and are breadwinners in most of their families. It is only in Benue State that the woman pounds the food in addition to running other chores for the family.
All these do not get into her head as she is still very loyal and respectful to her husband. Benue women make landslide marks in areas where they have served and surprisingly they tend not to take the glory to themselves but allow their husbands to take the glory. Whereas ladies from other states are known to study art courses in schools of higher learning, you see Benue ladies battling with men in the sciences and professional courses. Today, two women of Benue extraction are vice-chancellors of recognised universities in Benue State namely Benue State University and the University of Mkar, what a landmark.
Thinking of getting a wife? Then visit Benue State or get hooked to a Benue lady and I bet you, you would have made the best choice!
