Georgina Onuoha, a US based Nollywood actress, who is now a certified medical practitioner has reacted to the feminist post by Pastor Mike Bamiloye, who is also an actor and filmmaker.
While advising women to withdraw their support for the feminism movement, the Mount Zion Ministry’s drama leader had said being a feminist can mislead women from the will of God.
“If you are a Single Sister, DONT JOIN THE FEMINIST MOVEMENT! The Feminist Movement May make you miss the Will of God for your Life. If you are MARRIED, don’t join them either, IF YOU WANT TO GET THE BEST OUT OF YOUR MARRIAGE. The Feminism want to CONTEST the Head of the Home,” he wrote.
However, for Onuoha she is feminist and sees nothing wrong with pastors wives and other women fighting for the right to be treated right.
In a lengthy post she wrote on Instagram, Georgina Onuoha noted that advising women otherwise has in one way or the other pushed them to go fetish (Kayamata) in order to be in control men in their respective relationships.
She wrote, “These are the kind of teachings and preaching from men of God that are suppose to be spiritual leaders are teaching Nigerians, yet we wonder why women in Nigeria are seen as commodities, properties and are constantly abused by the society. Yet this same pastor has enjoyed the dividends of feminism because we all watched his wife growing up as a part of his ministry.
I hope someone tells him that his wife being able to have a voice and be part of his production is the textbook definition of feminism.
I pray he understands that his daughters are as important as his sons and as such should be treated equally and accordingly.
It is teachings like this that has dimmed the light of so many women in Nigeria, because they cling to the words of their pastors while denying themselves the abilities to attain their full potential.
Demanding equal pay, same respect, right to lead and be heard is not a sin.. The Bible never taught any of us that. So many pastors continue to take advantage of the scriptures, perverting it to soothe their own fragile masculinity.
Women, demand what is due you, honor your father and husband but never let anyone tell you you are not enough not even your pastors.
Any woman wanting To claim head of the family is sick upstairs, hence the head can not stand without the neck.If you are a man or woman that wants his or her daughter to be treated differently because of her gender.. raise up your hand ..It is because of such teachings that our girls and women have been reduced to kayamata.”
