A Nigerian Twitter user, simply identified as Bamidele, has asserted that it is a man’s responsibility to care for a child, even if he finds out that the child is not his biological offspring.
She expressed this opinion via her Twitter handle while advocating for husbands to overlook cases of paternity fraud committed by their wives.
Bamidele argued that if a man conducts a DNA test on his child and the results show that the baby belongs to someone else, as long as he is in a relationship with the woman, he should still take custody of the child.
According to her, women endure a lot during childbirth, and it is only right for men to treat them better regardless of the situation.
She wrote,“Men, if you conduct a DNA test on your baby and find out the child is not biologically yours, as long as you are still with the woman, it is your responsibility to take custody of the baby. It doesn’t change anything. Women go through a lot in childbirth, and women deserve better.”
Men, if you check your baby’ DNA and the child is not yours, so far you are with the woman it is your responsibility to take custody of the baby. It doesn’t change anything.
Women go through a lot in Childbirth and women deserve better.
