Woman files for divorce from semi-literate husband who sponsored her to PhD level



A woman is reportedly set to formally divorce her husband after he sponsored her education up till PhD programme.

The man’s cousin identified as @Abdullahiabba_ on Twitter took to the social networking service to share the ordeal faced by his cousin.

He said the man dropped out of school after he got married so that he could support his wife’s education because her parents were not financially buoyant enough to train her.

He was able to sponsor her to PhD level, however, now that she has attained the highest academic level, she wants to divorce him.

According to Abdullahi, the woman said she could not see herself being controlled by someone who is not educated like herself.

The post reads;

“My Cousin Sameer had to drop out of school after marriage just to support his wife education due to her parents were not strong enough for that just for her to attain Phd and seek for divorce from him telling him she can’t be controlled by a man who’s not educated like her. She can’t be controlled by a man who’s not up to her standards in terms of Education.”
