Nollywood actress, Georgina Onuoha, has berated Pastor Becky Enenche over a tweet that appeared to condemn divorce.
In the tweet, the Co-Senior Pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Centre (DIGC) advised single men and women to “shine their eyes” before walking down the aisle. According to her, it’s important to be sure of who one is getting married to because divorce is not an option after marriage.
She further stated that divorce is not an option at all as it has an adverse effect on the children and can affect them for the rest of their lives. She opined that the majority of wayward children in society today are products of divorced homes.

In a lengthy Instagram post, Georgina Onuoha, who had an entirely different option, tackled the clergywoman’s stance on divorce. Onuoha noted that views like this are the reason most men and women remain in abusive marriages and relationships.
“And to think this woman @drbeckyenenche and her husband are clinicians? Their medical license should be revoked. Sadly Nigeria is a failed state where people who should be protecting lives according to the hippocratic oath are the ones putting lives at risk because they hold megaphones.
Views like this are why many innocent women and men are dying in abusive relationships and marriages. This right here sickens my soul. The perversion of Christianity by the so-called women and men of God is scary. This woman right here should cover her face in shame. And you will still see people defending such rhetoric.
“My dear Ginafam, Leave to live if a woman or man subjects you to emotional, physical, or psychological abuse. There’s nothing Godly about dying in an abusive marriage or relationship. That is definitely not God’s plan for marriage. Nobody needs to die to receive any reward from heaven. It’s sickening how African culture has used religion to subjugate women since 1900”. She wrote.
