Otunba Segun Runsewe, Director-General, National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC), has commended Gov. Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State for ordering the demolition of a house slated as venue for a sex party in Kaduna state.
Runsewe who gave the commendation in a statement on Sunday said organizing such sex party was a total disrespect for the Nigerian culture.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the house, located in Sabon Tasha, on the outskirts of Kaduna metropolis, was demolished on Dec. 31, 2020 by the Kaduna State Urban Planning Development Agency.
“This will lead to social disconnect and dislocations with drug peddling in tow and our children destroyed in the process.
“In 1992, Senegal and Uganda, experienced massive influx of sex tourists and immediately took hard measures to curb it because if left unchecked, sex tourism will damage the spiritual, moral and cultural values of any society.
Runsewe said NCAC would be doing more in 2021 to ensure that Nigerian cultures remained respected and upheld.
He stated that there was the need for parents to monitor their children closely and nip untoward attitudes and activities in the bud.
Runsewe called on other governors to support the full restoration and enthronement of Nigerian cultural values to rid the nation of strange characters and lifestyles.
“This is how Boko Haram and “Yahoo-Yahoo’’ started and before we knew it, our society and young persons were left to drink from the polluted waters of social vices leaving us to struggle on all fronts.
“So let those who are angry at the response of Gov. El-Rufai go to check out various campaigns mounted against sex tourism by the United Nations World Tourism Organization and the Universal Federation of Travel Agencies,’’ he stated.
He said this would be targeted at youths and the older generation to rid Nigeria of devil’s plan to destroy young persons and their future wellbeing.
“Our culture no doubt is under threat from all sides, but with what Gov. El Rufai has done in Kaduna State, I am convinced that we shall battle the demons of immoral living and enemies of our cultures and traditions to a standstill,’’ he added.
