A recent study suggested that Nigerian women are the most unfaithful in the world. But the result of a random survey carried out by PEMBI STEPHEN-DAVID reveals that Nigerian women are actually faithful..
According to a survey involving 29,000 people from 36 countries, conducted by condom manufacturer, Durex, Nigerian women are the most unfaithful in the world.
The survey show that Thailand men are the most unfaithful in the world, with 54 per cent of them admitting to cheating on their spouses. South Korea came in second with 34 per cent, while Malaysia ranked number three with 33 per cent.
The survey revealed that the top two countries with cheating women are Nigeria, with 62 per cent, and Thailand, 59 per cent.
39 per cent of Malaysian women also confessed to having betrayed their partners. Russian women came fourth at 33 per cent while Singaporeans are fifth at 19 per cent.
An independent survey also conducted in Africa by AE affirms the fact that Nigeria with a population of over 160 million tops the chart for cheating women. Corruption and a general distrust amongst citizens are largely responsible for this.
The result of an independent survey carried out by LEADERSHIP across the six geo-political zones; show that the results of the two surveys are not to be taken seriously.
A survey conducted in Kano State, involving ten women and men shows that women are committed to their spouses. Eight out of the total number interviewed said that the criteria used in judging Nigerian in the survey is questionable as they believe there are more nations with unfaithful women than Nigeria. The remaining two however agree that the result is accurate.
In another survey carried out in Kaduna State, involving about twelve people indicates that religious believe and fear of sexually transmitted deceases are factors that make Nigerian women refrain from unfaithful acts. While seven people vehemently disagree with the result of the research tagging Nigerian women the most unfaithful in the world. Five were indifferent.
The study in Lagos, involving twelve people, shows that though morality and trust have become elusive in people's life, Nigerian women are still committed to their spouses. Ten people, making up 80 per cent of the population argued that Durex cannot determine that Nigerian women are unfaithful as the parameter they used is not acceptable. While four people, making up 20 per cent agreed that Nigerian women may be unfaithful but they are not the most unfaithful in the world.
The result of Ibadan, the Oyo State capital is not different from what the Lagos State result shows as out of the six people interviewed, eight, making 80 per cent argued that Nigerian women, though facing many challenges, are still faithful compared to their counterparts in other countries. However two people, completing the population, agreed with the research.
Seventy per cent of women interviewed South- South states of Edo and Rivers, involving six women shows that infidelity among married women is not common in Nigeria alone. Ten per cent of the population said that Nigerian women can actually betray their spouse because of money.
The survey carried out in North East states of Adamawa and Bauchi, involving eighteen married women shows that Nigerian women are guided by religious believe so they are likely to be faithful to their spouses. Fourteen of them, representing about 90 per cent said Nigerian women are not unfaithful.
The result of the North Central states of Benue, Nassarawa and Plateau revealed that Nigerian women though committed to their marriage, may find reasons to be unfaithful as poverty, love for money, among other things, can push them to the world. The research population of thirty men and women, involving both married and unmarried people show that fifteen people, making up 50 per cent agree that Nigeria women can be promiscuous but not the most unfaithful in the world while the remaining 50 per cent believe that most Nigerian women are not promiscuous.
The result from the South East states of Abia and Imo, involving ten people shows that unfaithfulness among Nigerian women is not as common as it is in most European states. While four of them believe that Nigerian women are faithful, one of them was indifferent.
The survey in the nation's capital, involving ten women and five men shows that Nigerian women though not as unfaithful as women in most countries, can actually be lured by money. Eight people believe that Nigerian women are unfaithful while seven people said the result is not true.
