I don't think so. I believe that if the people involved are genuine and agree, it could actually work. Actually, there are so many reasons for polygamy, especially in the Nigerian society, including looking for a male child, or any child, having more hands to help (eg, when the first wife is a career woman, the second can stay at home) and of course the fact that, a woman is not regarded as responsible unless she is married.

In the christian context, it is bad and unlawful.  In the African context it is lawful.  But the evils associated with it are more than the gains.
Those who can cope with its troubles, can go ahead.  For me, it is a no go area.

1- a male child or female child is made possible by God. 2- a loving and caring husband can liase with his 'professional' wife to keep the home without getting a second or more wives. 3- in many cases, unmarried women are even more responsible than the married ones. It is not right for woman to throw happiness to the wind and become second or more wife to a man.
Polygamy is totally bad. The man will die before his time because of lack of peace. I hate poligamy- too many problems.
I can't believe I'm reading this in 2011,God never created man to marry more than one wife at a time,Polygamy was allowed due to Man's wickedness,It is all about control,The idea of having a male Child as excuse is just out dated,every child is equal and should be treated alike,I'm sure as woman,you won't want to be a second wife or a first wife while your husband pick up another wife.It is wrong!!!! If a marriage has failed beyond redemption,I'll support divorce and re marry,never polygamy.
@Grace and Chris, I hear you.
