Meanwhile, previously reported that a viral Nigerian lecturer, Mohammed Sulaimon, who had flaunted his polygamous family of three wives and eighteen kids during Eid-El-Kabir has revealed that he didn't fancy having a large family while growing up.

The lecturer at Umar Bn Khattab College of Education, Kaduna told The Punch that the reason for that is because he constantly heard about the difficulty of training a wife and children.

Sulaimon said his philosophy of life and mentality however changed as he grew up. The academic stated that he realised that all that was needed was for him to work hard and cater for his family. He added that marriage is also an avenue to cater for women as many of them do not have husbands.
