7 Reasons Why Nigerian Women Love Pockets

September 16, 2021

Have you ever wondered why Nigerian women get so excited when they find out one of their dresses have pockets? Or why they get so sad when their jeans have no pockets? Well, our team of “experts” have come up with seven reasons why Nigerian women love pockets.

1) To store their secrets, lies, and evidence

Nigerian women need space for all their secrets and lies. Once they run out of space in their heads and bags, pockets are the next alternative. Where else do you think they store all the damning evidence against you and your loved ones?

2) They carry a lot of stuff around

If you open a Nigerian woman’s bag, you might probably find the bottle she used to trap you. They constantly walk around with a bunch of stuff they think they MIGHT need. They carry things like at any moment, an apocalypse can happen. Of course, it is perfectly normal to have a hammer in your bag. You can never tell when you might have to nail someone on the cross. Anyways, give pockets to Nigerian women so they have space to store all of their nonsense.

3) They don’t have any

For some reason, cloth makers have decided that women do not need pockets. Could it be that if women’s clothes had bigger pockets, nobody would buy purses? Either way, this grave injustice done to women has only increased their love for pockets. Nigerian women don’t want much out of life. It will do the fashion industry a lot of good to include deep, big, and wide pockets in their clothes.

4) They’re convenient

Nobody wants to be carrying a bag up and down. Especially if you just want to run a quick errand. Pockets prevent looking like you’re too dressed up for a casual event.

5) Thief proof

Purses are easy to snatch, but how will someone want to dip their hand inside your pocket without collecting a slap hot enough to reset their future? Women walking alone seem like easy targets for thieves, but those without purses don’t look like they have anything of value. The thief might even pity you and give you money.

6) Their hands need a break

Not only are their hands carrying a lot of things at once, but their hands need a place to rest from all the activities of the day. Normalise letting women’s hands rest. Normalise pockets in women’s clothes.

7) False pockets

Another reason women love pockets so much is because they have been taunted by the idea of false pockets. Jeans that will have an illusion of a pocket but will actually be sewn shut are demonic and as a society, we need to take a stand against them. So, it’s no wonder why women love pockets. They have been teased and want a taste of the pocket life.
