Nigerian novelist Chimamanda Adichie is misleading girls as her stance on feminism would “turn around and bite them,” a presidential aspirant Eunice Atuejide has said.

Adichie is known for her hard line on feminism and only recently advocated for the abolition of bride price.

However, Atuejide, an aspirant under the National Interest Party claimed that the award-winning wordsmith is an extremist who is only misleading a lot of girls.

“I think she is an extremist, sometimes I do think she’s misleading a lot of our girls,” she told Cool FM when asked about her opinion on Adichie.

“There are sometimes very few times when I agree with her, but most of the times I’m like ‘Oh my God’, I hope our women do not necessarily take home to what she says because some of them could turn around and bite them in the bum.”
