Former presidential aide and author Reno Omokri has taken to Twitter to explain why some Nigerian men go for older white women instead of younger ladies from their country.
Omokri said securing a green card is not always the motive behind the men's decision to marry older white women.
According to him, the marriage list some Nigerian women give their suitors is one of the factors chasing men away from them.
"Nigerian women complain that too many young Nigerian men marry older White women. It is not always paper job. Have you seen the marriage list some Nigerian women give men? It is enough to make a man impotent! Some Nigerian love is becoming too expensive."
Nigerians took to the comment section to share their thoughts.
