The Director-General of the National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC) Olusegun Runsewe had stated that the demolition of the house alleged to be the venue of the sex party in Kaduna State is in the right direction.
This was contained in a statement he issued on Sunday January 3, 2021. Runsewe insisted that such act as organizing a sex party is not of Nigerian culture and condemnable. He averred that Governor Nasir El-Rufai deserve commendation for his prompt response to the plan which he said will serve as warning to others who could be planning such immorality.
The statement reads in part.
“But for this intervention by the governor, Kaduna State possibly would become the new capital and destination for sex tourism in Nigeria.
In the same vein he said that 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.
“And there is no sentiments about dealing with it as. El-Rufai has done.”
Runsewe who called on other governors to support the full restoration and enthronement of Nigerian cultural values to rid the nation of strange characters and lifestyles, urged parents to monitor their children closely and nip untoward attitude in the bud as the NCAC would be doing more in 2021 to ensure that Nigerian cultures remained respected and upheld.
His statement also added below.
“Certainly, Governor El-Rufai has vindicated our position on the need to stop and arrest the unfortunate presence and foreign behavioral influence threatening our cultures and traditions.
“Am sure with the pulling down of the house planned for the sex party, sufficient signals have been sent to other deviants, their sponsors and publics.
“The law of this country must be applied to the fullest to stop this rage from the pit of darkness.
“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 also added that 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 said.
