According to @Ebuka Eclat, a Twitter user bemoaned the prevalent practice of a women completing a slew of chores on Saturdays and Sundays despite working from Monday to Friday, while their husbands get to relax on the weekend.
“Husband is relaxing in the house, wife is washing a mountain of clothes outside under this sun. After this, she’ll go and cook. They do this every f*cking Saturday and they both go to work from Monday-Friday. You see this kind of marriage? I reject it for all my female friends,” He wrote.

Efe wrote; Marriages were more successful in the past when women saw these duties as core marital responsibilities. Washing machine & other kitchen utensils have eliminated a lot of stress in the kitchen but no, home chores must be shared but house rent and other heavy bills are masculine
