Once the union between a young Nigerian man and a older American or British lady goes viral online, the usually narrative is that the young man did it to secure British or American citizenship.
However, socio-political critic and former Special Adviser on New Media to former President, Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri believes it is not exactly the case.
Reno Omokri took to his Instagram handle to state the reason many Nigerian men get married to older white women who live abroad, theeditorng.com reports.
â€œNigerian women complain that too many young Nigerian men are marrying older White women. It is not always paper job. Have you seen the marriage list some Nigerian women give men? It is enough to make a man impotent!
Some Nigerian love is becoming too expensive. It is easier to get finance for romance in Nigeria than to get finance for business.
Our society needs an ethical revolution. If this prevailing trend of no romance without finance continues, more and more Nigerian men will prefer to marry foreign wives!â€
