Nigerian filmmaker, Austin Faani, has stated that having only female children and being unable to have male children can be quite depressing for a woman.
Faani, who’s married to actress Chacha Eke, opined that looking for a male child can cause severe mental illness in women, so there is a serious need for sensitization.
He urged Nigeria’s Ministry of Women Affairs to develop ways to educate women on the necessity of staying positive even if they are unable to conceive a male child.
Which is; “Female children have more emotional transaction with their parents than the male children and when you grow old, what you need most is emotional transaction not financial transaction. You can take care of yourself at old age if you make the right decision in your youth. Nigerian women need to be taught a lot just as they are taught to always pray.” He added.
