Hello Boss, My second article with Pulse.ng has been published and I thought to share with you. So this is Verbatim:
Model: Somto Mbelu
Life is supposed to be lived in a balance. That is why too much of anything even common drinking water drunk in excess can lead to death.
Same way, society must cater for everyone and for everything. We cannot want to empower children by protecting their rights and not empower women and men, vice versa; everyone matter.
I updated my MTN Caller feel with “Men matter, they are first human before they are male!” and just like people react whenever I mention that I advocate for Men empowerment, the questions have been pouring in.
You see, people have told me that men are already empowered by birth; and I ask, really? Some are of the opinion that women are the ones who have been marginalised, and thus the parity drive and equity and inequality campaigns, and I agree as well as disagree. Well, the matter is that I feel, we must focus on everyone and that is the way, we can all choose which part of the ‘elephant that is our responsibility to eat’ in our drive for development in Nigeria and across Africa. It is a communal effort.
I happen to believe that Men are the fulcrum upon which women and children’s lives rotate, and if that is not far from the truth, then we must ensure they are ‘fixed’ and are ‘whole’ for women and children to be preserved.
