“DNA test should be a prerequisite immediately a child is born” – Do2dtun advocates

Media personality Do2dtun has advocated for DNA test to be done on children immediately they are born.

Taking to the micro-blogging platform, the OAP stated that the same way test is been carried out when a child is born, it should be the same with DNA. He noted how people see DNA as scared because it is been seen as a borderline mishap for trust, but for him, it’s best to know in the beginning and now.

He added that conducting DNA helps produce one’s genetic information, health history and things one needs to look out for.

“I believe DNA shld be a prerequisite immediately a child is born. The same way they carry out test on a child when they are born. It shld be seamless. It is seen as sacred cos people see it as a borderline mishap for trust but It’s best to know in the beginning & now.

The moment it’s seen as a mechanism for trust then it defeats the purpose. It was not invented to test trust. Also it produces your genetic info, your health history & things you need to look out for for example if you have a family history of hypertension, it will tell you”.

Similarly, Yoruba actor, Rotimi Salami made a strong case for paternity fraud, advocating that it should be criminalized like rape. He likened the pain and trauma a woman experiences when raped to that of a man when he finds out the child he has been raising another man’s child.

In another post, Rotimi Salami stated that someday we would all realize that not everyone whose DNA didn’t match cheated. He pointed out how the big business of exchanging kids at birth from hospitals is one angle many haven’t talked about. He also called for DNA to be done on mother’s as well as he stated that it is very important.

Meanwhile, veteran actor and filmmaker, Ugezu J Ugezu had kicked against the need for DNA. The actor had taken to his Instagram page to chastise men who have formed the habit of undergoing paternity tests before claiming a child.

He opined that DNA stuff is tearing many homes apart and destroying innocent children as any child born to an African man is an African man’s child.
