It Is Not Your Responsibility To Take Care Of Your Parents – Bisi Alimi

Nigerian gay activist, Bisi Alimi, has written an epistle telling Nigerians that it is not their responsibility to take care of their parents, neither is it the right of their parents. According to him, a child owes his/her parent nothing, as he/she never begged them to have sex.

He went further to disclose that a child, is not an old age pension scheme. He went further to tell Nigerians not to succumb to emotional blackmail from their parents, or they will milk them dry.

Here’s what he wrote;


“Nigerians, doomed financial vicious circle is when your parents brought you up so you can be their cow to milk, while you look forward to doing same to your children.
I understand that the system is bleeped, pension money is being embezzled by stupid greedy politicians, the same ones you worship and bow to, and there is no guarantee for old age, but Bleep, the system won’t fix itself. If you don’t resist, you will be consumed.

The idea that it is the responsibility of the struggling young to take care of the struggling old is a myth sold to you by the corrupt politicians who have stolen the resources of your commonwealth.

Remember, one rich man among 100 poor men will eventually end up being poor.
You only have two commitments in life; yourself and your children and that’s until they are old enough to be kicked out of the house.

You do not, I repeat, you do not owe your parents any pay back unless you are still living with them, which means get the Bleep out or start paying rent and bills.

Remember, you didn’t beg them to have sex, they wanted to have children, it’s their choice, you should not be their old age pension scheme.
Only do it if you can and have the resources to, but even with that, know the limit or they will emotionally blackmail you and milk you dry.”

  1. Bisi you are wrong and you know it , your parents taught you better the word of God teaches you also Ephesians 6:1-2 AND even athetists in the west do it look after their parents . i think you are speaking out of bitterness and i pray that the Lord heals your relationship with your parents IJN Amen. Jesus even rebukes the people not to buy a gift for the temple if they are going to use the money that they should use for their parents.Mathew 15:5..( take note tithers who tithe and dont take care of their parents/family you should take care of parents first then tithe) @ the same time A parent must not over burden the child tho the child should only pay what is within their means to pay for it is written it is accepted according to what one has . If the child can only afford to give N500 a month then take it – its your lot a child who can afford to make payment s SHOULD make payments and not say its too small etc or when i get more money its a requirement to avoid a curse which God can allow…if a child cant make payments then whatever they can make ie prayers for the parent , go and clean their house do their errands etc if you dont have money give what you do have ..
