Uti Nwachukwu, the Nigerian media personality, says he thinks men should have no business getting married before 40.

The 40-year-old TV host gave his opinion about marriage in the latest episode of ‘Toke Moments’.

Nwachukwu also said marriage is a spiritual contract which requires a certain level of loyalty.

“I don’t think any man has any business marrying before 40. To me, and it doesn’t make me right. I’d say between 35 to 40,” he said.

“I don’t think any woman should be married before 30. You have to experience life as a single, you have to weigh your options and all of that. Apart from those that are afraid of their biological clock but then again, how many children do women want these days and please there’s technology.”

When asked if he believes a man and woman can be together forever, Nwachukwu said “that is why I am not married yet.”

“I might be Kamala Harris’ age when I decide to get married, I don’t know,” he said.

The former winner of Big Brother Africa (BBAfrica) housemate said people who are not ready to be loyal to their partners should not make their relationship official.

“If you don’t want to commit to somebody, don’t make it official whether in the presence of God, the government or your family,” he said.

“Leave contract, leave the agreement. Once you agree, integrity is integrity. There’s no excuse.”

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) branch in Lagos says it has begun an investigation of Oluwadarasimi Omoseyin, the actress, for allegedly tampering with the redesigned naira notes.

The actress was arrested on Wednesday by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) for selling the new naira notes on social media.

Azuka Ogugua, the ICPC spokesperson, said the serial entrepreneur colluded with “key elements” in the financial sector to divert the new notes and sell them in the black market.

The EFCC, in a statement on Friday, said it has taken over the case from the ICPC.

The commission said the 31-year-old was arrested after the video of her spraying and stepping on the newly redesigned naira notes at a party surfaced online.

The anti-graft agency said the offense is contrary to Section 21 (5) of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Act, 2007.

“In the viral video, she was also seen flaunting wads of the new Naira notes,” the statement reads.

“The suspect was subsequently handed over to the EFCC on Thursday, February 2, 2023, for further investigations.

“Items recovered from her at the point of arrest include a Range Rover and iPhone mobile devices.

“The suspect will be charged to court once investigations have been concluded.”
