In this session, Feb Idahosa was able to examine the #RealLifeIssue in the context of a marital relationship.

Join me as with great joy, I invite on board @BIUpresident Feb Idahosa to the 1st session on #ListenUpNG in the 2nd half of 2016!

1. @KemiOdutayo Thank you for that wonderful introduction; I must say I’m glad to be hosted by you on such a pertinent topic. #ListenUpNG

2. Being a man is tough & carries its own pressures & responsibilities. Being a Nigerian man is even tougher. #ListenUpNG

3. I’m blessed to be both a man and Nigerian. Double pressure but double blessing as well. #ListenUpNG

4. The biggest issue I’ve had to deal with as a Nigerian man is that there is no template to follow on “How to be a man.” #ListenUpNG

5. Young Nigerian boys also do not often have examples to follow in the intricacies of manhood. Who is our model?
#ListenUpNG

6. The truth is, no one teaches us, as young Nigerian boys, how to be a man.
#ListenUpNG

Q: ???????????? Have our fathers failed us? Probably cos NOBODY taught them too. Being a MAN has been equated to being a MALE! https://t.co/OaXjx9DbmV

A: Our fathers didn’t fail us completely. They brought us up to be good men. They just didn’t teach the “how.” #ListenUpNG

7. When our fathers were present, they were often busy “providing” for the home. So no playtime & modeling time for their sons.
#ListenUpNG

8. Our fathers didn’t teach us to be men b/c their fathers didn’t teach them. Let’s not make the same mistake with our sons.
#ListenUpNG

9. In most Nigerian households the husband behaves the way he does because that’s what he saw his father do.
#ListenUpNG

10. If the Nigerian man does not learn new habits & ways to behave in his home, his son will be doomed to repeat his mistakes.
#ListenUpNG

11. The 21st century man saw his father make some mistakes, but unfortunately, he was not told they were mistakes.
#ListenUpNG

12. The mistakes we saw our fathers make, when not corrected, turn into our mistakes.
#ListenUpNG

13. The mistakes we saw our fathers make also unfortunately become the unrealistic expectations of the 21st century Nigerian man #ListenUpNG

14. Some unrealistic expectations: Your wife is your property. You can treat her anyway you want. She doesn’t matter or mind.
#ListenUpNG

15. #DearNigerianMan your wife is not your property. She is an equal partner created by God to WORK WITH, not FOR you.
#ListenUpNG

16. The Bible refers to a wife as a help meet for a man. In context (Gen. 2:18) it means a help suitable. God has you in mind
#ListenUpNG

17. My wife [email protected] presented some great insight on the roles of men & women in marriage. See #familyLifeSimplified #ListenUpNG

18. #DearHubbyNG
#DearNigerianMan
Treat your wife as your partner & she will make your life sweeter than you can imagine. #ListenUpNG

19. Some more unrealistic male expectations: Your word is law in your house. After all you are the MAN of the house (roar!).
#ListenUpNG

20. Yes you’re the man of the house & we expect YOU to lead. But remember yr wife is ALSO blessed with wisdom. Ask her thoughts #ListenUpNG

21. Your wife also wants the best for you & the family. She will bring her best to the table and not steer you wrong.
#ListenUpNG

22. #DearNigerianMan listen to your wife. She wants the best for you & will bring out the best in you if you give her a chance. #ListenUpNG

23. #DearNigerianMan remember that your relationship with yr wife should follow that which Christ has with the church. Love her #ListenUpNG

24. The Nigerian man expects his wife to submit to him. Fine. Ask yourself why you submit to Christ. Remember He’s the example
#ListenUpNG

25. We submit to Christ not because He demands it, but because He loves us so much that we CHOOSE and WANT TO submit.
#ListenUpNG

26. #DearNigerianMan submission from your wife will be easy when the love from you is abundant. Love her & watch what happens.
#ListenUpNG

27. I got some advice from Dr. [email protected] Sr some year ago. He said your wife is like a mirror. What you show, she reflects.
#ListenUpNG

28. Show your wife love & she will give you love like you’ve never seen. Show your wife hell & well, you get the picture.
#ListenUpNG

29. I’m praying that the Lord will bless you & strengthen your marriages and relationships. Remember, He has your best in mind
#ListenUpNG

Remember the following, from [email protected]: love and sacrifice are reciprocal.

30. That’s about all we have time for today. Thank you @KemiOdutayo and #ListenUpNG for the chance to speak into the lives of my fellow men

Till I come your way next week Friday on #ListenUpNG Wk28, #DearBooNG #DearHubbyNG Know for a fact that being MALE doesn’t equate being a MAN! Being a man involves deliberate effort and development from boyhood to manhood…and getting rid of all disempowering beliefs, culture and traditions that have been passed down from generations to generations.
