The National Council for Women Societies (NCWS) has commended the Inspector-General of Police, Mr Muhammad Adamu and the Director-General of the National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC), Otunba Olusegun Runsewe for spearheading the campaign against moral decadence in Nigeria.
In a release signed by the National President of NCWS, Dr. (Mrs) Gloria Laraba Shoda, Nigerian women described as offensive the promotion of despicable conducts such as nudity and transgender activities by the likes of Bobrisky (Nigerian male Barbie, Idris Okuneye).
The NCWS lauded Otunba Runsewe for exposing the unbecoming conducts og Bobrisky and the IGP for his intervention to stem the ugly trend.
“We at the NCWS are happy that our visit to the DG of the NCAC has yielded positive responses from the government and the public as indicated by the actions so far taken and the messages we continue to receive from well-meaning Nigerians”, she said.
The NCWS lamented that the unwanton show of cross gender activities is projecting a negative image to Nigerian youths, adding that his activities are not true representative of Nigeria’s culture.
The NCWS decried the progressive erosion of cultural values and the importation of alien cultures such as indecent exposures and open sexual activities in electronic media.
The Council stressed that Nigeria culture and law recognizes the clear distinction between men and women, reiterating that anything to the contrary is absurd, unacceptable and therefore should be resisted.
“It is regrettable and strange for Bobrisky to publicly declare that he has 24 boy-friends in high places,” the NCWS President said.
The NCWS called on Nigerian government and all well-meaning citizens to rise up to ‘stop this evil before it destroys our children and the future of our nation’.
“The protection of our noble cultural heritage and national image is of paramount importance to us all”, the NCWS pointed out.
