A Nigerian prophetess, Patience Obi, has stirred reactions online with her sermon that said wives must give all their money to their husbands.
The cleric stated that the wife must give every dime to him even before she spends anything out of it. She added that the man of the house has every right on the resources of the woman.
He will tell you how to spend it
She argued that as the head of the home, the man will be the one to instruct the woman on what to spend the money on.

The pastor said:
“You must submit everything… He has the control over the money.”
Don't worry about what he will do with the money
According to Pastor Patience, the fear of what the man would do with the money should not be an issue, adding that courtship is a time for partners to know each other.
The pastor cited Ephesians 5 verse 24 to buttress her point. She said:
“If you don’t submit your money, especially your money, to your husband, you are disobeying God. It is sin, it can hinder your prayer… you become a liar before God.”
