Nigerian Nollywood actor, Rotimi Salami, has opined that conducting a DNA test on a child is not necessarily compulsory. ayokinews.com reports
Rotimi stated that a father is not necessarily the sperm donor but the one who raised and took proper care of the child.
Speaking further, the star actor noted that a DNA test should only be deemed necessary if someone else is claiming ownership of the child.
In his words: “I honestly think DNA test is not important unless someone is dragging your child with you. If you have a child you are raising, you don’t need to go finding out the paternity. Every child is your child. A father is someone who raised a child, not necessarily the sperm giver. Save yourself the heart attack and protect that child’s emotions too.”
