“I married my wife a virgin….” Governor Ben Ayade Revealed On World Aids Day  

Cross River State Governor, Ben Ayade, revealed yesterday, that he married his wife, Dr. Linda Ayade, a virgin, which is the pride of Africans, who value the virtues of chastity.

The governor, who described his wife as one of such rare women who lived a virtuous lifestyle before she got married to him as a virgin,  made the disclosure in Calabar, while delivering a lecture on the HIV/AIDS scourge to mark the 2016 World Aids Day.

Ayade said the greatest gift any woman could possibly hand to her husband was to present her body as a virgin to him. He then advised youths to stop engaging in sex before marriage as it is the best way to avoid contracting HIV/AIDS virus, Vanguard reports.


“I should say to the teenagers here today that when somebody leads you to the altar, at the end of that day he should be glad to say I married my wife a virgin.”

The governor stated that young people easily gave in to sex due to financial inducement, peer pressure and influence of international movies and believed that with the use of condom they were secure from HIV, which in most cases was not full-proof protection against the pandemic.

The father of three continues:

”When people use condom, they think they are safe which is the major cause of infection because evidence abound that the use of condom does not provide total protection against HIV/AIDS since the condom itself has small holes that are 0.05 wider than microbes, which makes HIV virus to pass successfully.”

Ayade appealed to youths to see the dreaded HIV/ AIDS as real because it has destroyed many families, rendered many children orphans, many men and women widows and widowers respectively.

He noted that although poverty and some social pressure may have pushed many young girls into early exposure, there is need to teach our upcoming youths the true values of Africa which frowns at immorality which is now the order of the day.

Dr Rose Nyambi, the Director General of the State Action Committee Against AIDS, SACA, said the state had 164,267 persons (108,000 females; 61,827 males) living positively with the virus.
