Pastor Enoch Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, has come under attack over his statement on Monday advising young women to learn from his wife.

The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christain Church of God, RCCG, highlighted various lessons young brides should learn from his wife, who clocks seven-two on Monday, July 13.

In a post on his Instagram page, Pastor Adeboye, who described his wife as a powerful woman, noted that she remains submissive despite how powerful she is.

He added that it is a terrible thing for a husband to see his wife as the head, adding that the man is the head of the home.

Pastor Adeboye, who described his wife as his number one fan referred to the book titled Mathematics of Marriage, which they coauthored and how his wife said she could not help him without his instructions.

He continued by saying that his wife still cooks foods and serves him by herself no matter her busy schedule.

The Cleric pointed to how some young ladies these days leave everything to the house help. 

"My wife still trims my nails for me; there was a time when I was a teacher and was staying far from town. She had to cut my hair during that period. She is the only partner of the Adeboye Corporation; she doesn't delegate her primary duties to anyone else.

His comment has stirred reactions from feminists on social media who saw his statement as a way of diminishing the female gender and airing his masculinity.

See reactions below:

"May God put every man that wants to keep women in bondage to their selfish desires in bigger cages alone IJN! May God cause anybody that wants us to serve him and not God alone to rot IJN!"

"I'm literally disappointed, instead of eulogising the woman. You make it about you and how submissive she is. I literally cringed reading this."

"The husband is the head of the family while the wife is the neck. Step on her neck! That's it that's the thread."

"This thread is a summary of Patriarchy 101.

"When I see feminist getting angry on tweets pike this I begin to question their motives, I've noticed they promote Lesbianism and every other thing the Bible speaks against, this is Bible's standard of marriage, wives be submissive to our husband and husband should love his Wife."

He capped his birthday wishes by referring to how the book of Proverbs 31: 1-31 described a virtuous woman adding that he safely rest on his wife. 

The cleric stated that his wife upholds anything he said as he also advised young brides to make up for their husband’s weaknesses, celebrate their successes and be his number one cheerleader.
