Osinbajo said this while speaking on a father celebration church ceremony.
He said, “I think the responsibility of the father is incredible indeed and I think what is most important is to teach our men, young men growing up, that they must honour women, not just their wives.
“Of course, you must honour and love your wives, but I think that it is very important that we honour women.
“We don’t treat them as subordinates to us; they are created equal to men.
“But, most importantly, we must honour them and recognise their role as partners, not just in families, but in the society as well.”
“It is not the ability to father a child, the ability to have a child that makes you a father; it is the courage to bring up one, ability to raise one.
“That’s what really makes you a father and I think the responsibilities of fatherhood are so many, whether one is a biological father or whether you are one who wants to take care of other children.
“I think that all of us, as men, have a role to play in the lives of so many, not just our biological children but so many of them who have no fathers; even to some who have fathers to who we have responsibility to set example to lead exemplary life, to bring them up as scripture says in the way of the Lord.”
