Don‘t trust your life with someone you can’t trust your money with – Pastor Kingsley Okonkwo weighs in on footballer Hakimi’s divorce saga

Nigerian pastor, relationship coach and counselor, Pastor Kingsley Okonkwo has shared his two cent on the divorce scandal of Moroccan footballer, Achraf Hakimi.

Hakimi, said to be one of the highest-earning players in Ligue 1, has been trending on all social media platforms following the drama that unfolded after his wife, Hiba Abouk, filed for a divorce.

Hiba, with whom he shares two children, had demanded half of his fortune but received a rude shock when she discovered that he didn’t have any property to his name.

Apparently, Hakimi had put all his assets and fortune under his mother’s name, so he technically doesn’t own any assets and is not obligated to give his wife anything.

The news caused a huge stir online with many praising Hakimi for securing his property against his wife, Hiba.

Reacting to this, Pastor Kingsley Okonkwo expressed disappointment in those celebrating Hakimi’s ‘win’ and stated that it is unwise to trust one’s life with someone who can’t be trusted with money..

He added that the institution called marriage designed by God is a covenant where two become one. The 47-year-old Pastor wrote on his Facebook page,

Came down from the plane (back to lagos ) to see this story trending

I’m seeing a lot of men praising the footballer for hiding his money……the LESSON here is not “hiding money from your spouse ” ,the real lesson is don’t trust someone with your life that you can’t trust with your money

If you marry carelessly then you will have to divorce carefully , Marriage as designed by God is a Covenant, TWO becoming ONE (Gen 2:24-25)

WE don’t have the full gist of all that went down in their marriage but I don’t think we are learning the right thing from the story
