Abuja Men's Club Where Cheaters Pay 100K Fine

Posted in: , ,

I lived in Abuja for several years as a single, working class lady, and I can tell you categorically [no oga at the top can say otherwise, hehehe..] that up to 7 out of 10 men that asked me out were married. There is also the other side of the coin that some single ladies in Abuja, knowing that the married men may be living separate lives from their wives, went all out to hook the men and make second homes with them in Abuja. Well, a men's club has risen to the task to help these philandering men keep to one woman. If you are reported and proved to have cheated on your wife, you pay a N100K fine to the club. The Sun Nigeria reports...

The Aso Country Club is out to re-invent stronger and more peaceful family ties among the members, therefore it has defined punishment for adulterers. But you may ask how they arrive at conviction for any accused before the one should be found guilty as to pay the fine?

They agree that adultery is a big menace to marriages, therefore, a way to take away the threat to family is by clamping down on guilty members with the N100,000 fine. It might surprise you that majority of the members of the club are middle-aged men and even men with very young families.

But they are resolute on waging a fierce war against the biggest threat to marriages, launching in a commando fashion, an operation to restore sanity and family ideals.


The pioneer chairman of the club, Chidiebere Ogbaji Ferguson told Abuja Metro that the campaign to checkmate adultery, the greatest attack on families, from spreading like wild fire, wrecking havoc and crumbling many marriages, is the motive behind forming the club and its resolution of N100,000 fine.

The club after its maiden investiture vowed to wrestle the menace of adultery to submission. He said: “We have read about so many divorce cases in FCT. Many close-knit families in the past are today operated by single parents.

We discovered that the social factor of this city is influencing not only marriages but also families. We decided to use the club to sustain marriages, deep relationship among people that found themselves under the same roof as spouses.

“We formed the club to advance deep interpersonal relationship among us, promote good and healthy lifestyle, realize our roles as husbands and heads of our families. Ferguson, the CEO of Home Mall noted that: “We have stood stoutly, with our rules and regulations, against any member going the wrong way, abandoning his family and allowing adultery to tear his marriage apart.

As I speak to you, two to three persons have paid N100,000 fine each while others have decided not to throw away such amount of money by involving themselves in any proven case of adultery that threatens their marriages.

Some members have complained that our fight against the menace on marriage is infringing on their personal freedom, but since the only language we understand very well here is force, we decided to tell ourselves that we either join or leave the club.

So, since the members know that adultery would kill their marriages and decided to continue to commit it, they should be ready to continue paying the club the fine of N100, 000 or stay out and enjoy their marriages and family lives.

What do you think of this stand by the Aso Country Club, something for other men's clubs to emulate? Or are they focusing on the superficial rather than the core problem? Let's discuss.

  4. Me thinks 100k is too small... Most of these men (@the mention of just a pet name, stroking of their hair, rubbing of their beer belly or one ridiculous lie) cough out 100k and more to their mistresses/gfriends. Why nau should 100k be fined for adultery?
    PLEASE RAISE THE BAR WAY HIGHER!

  11. The only question I have to ask this; What do they do with the fines paid? DO they use it to do parties or they use it to help broken homes or some other charity thing like that. If yes, all well and good. If no, then wahala dey. And if they catch someone cheating, do they inform the wife? Or is the 100k to buy the silence?
