One Alhaji Ahmed says women are the cause of most divorces because Satan “uses them easily”, Newsbreak reports.
Alhaji Ahmed said this in a recent interview on Ghanaian programme, Vibes in 5.
He also claimed that men don’t cheat, as it is natural for them to have multiple partners.
“Women are the cause of most divorces. The devil uses them easily. Men don’t cheat, God created them to sleep with more women. Don’t be deceived,” Alhaji Ahmed said.
