He said:

“One of the most striking foolish things a single lady must never do is to target to marry a rich man. They do fall into all terrible things in the process. Most of the times, they encounter ritual killers, a lot of sexually transmitted diseases, unwanted pregnancies.
“Some live in depression and consequently commit suicide. We attend to them daily in my office. Somebody gave birth to two children to two different men and she could not even pinpoint the father of the children because it was at a pool party that two or three people slept with her.
“They paid her and they slept with her because she wanted money. Then, she gave birth to miserable children with no father.”

Adewale further stated:

“I want all our young ladies to strive to become rich women. The brain of women is not different from the brain of men. It is the same thing. But, I know that there are a lot of hurdles they face in the process. Look at Okonjo-Iweala today.
“Every Nigerian lady should know that being a female is just in biology but not in money-making. There is something they call money magnet; So, anybody can magnetize money and money would not say are you a woman or a man.”
