National Council of Persons with Disabilities (NCPWD) chairman Dr. David Ole Sankok has warned his daughter against dating men with ‘bogus traits.’

While celebrating the birthday of his 19-year-old daughter Naserian, the nominated MP stated that she should tread carefully lest she falls for the ‘devil’s agents’.

"Remember there are only three rites of passage birth, marriage, and death. Anything else is a by-the-way.

"You are now an adult several years past puberty. I married your mother when she was 17 and I was 21 years.

"Get someone who lives his life without copying others because they may end up copying the devil's agents. Again you may love a photocopy of a man and when their true image comes out it may be too late,” he wrote on Facebook.

According to Sankok, men who base their lives on movie characters, boast fake accents and pride in makeup are a no-no.

“If you come across someone who; copies someone's talking style by changing his ascent, copies the hairstyle of another, apply makeups to change God's given colour, put on things that suggest he wants to change his gender or work hard to live a life of a Nigerian movie character. Please, my daughter ran for your dear life before he destroys all that you have worked for by forcing you to live a copied life,” Sankok went on.

He, however, reiterated that despite it all, he will respect the man he chooses.

“Daddy will respect your choice no matter what and I will be glad to support you,” he noted.

In 2018, the MP wowed the nation after he rewarded his daughter with a car for scoring an A- in the 2017 KCSE examinations.

He lauded her exemplary performance in a lengthy post.

“I present you this gift my child, a brand new car, to say thank you for exemplary results. Thank you for attaining an A- in your KCSE. The first gift I gave your mother Hellen Sankok was an ice-cream worth two shillings at Uhuru Park because that was what I could afford 19 years ago.

“My daughter it's not the price/value of the gift that matters, it is the love we attach to it. I named you Naserian my daughter meaning blessing because you were born at the exact time I was being sworn in as SONU Chairman seventeen years ago. I’m a proud father today,” read the post in part.
