Olusegun Runsewe, director-general of the National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC), has condemned the idea of sex party currently trending in Nigeria, describing it as “worse than the deadly coronavirus”.
Speaking in an interview with NAN, Runsewe admonished Nigerians to reject the “disgusting idea” and condemn it totally.
He lauded Nasir el-Rufai, governor of Kaduna, for stopping the party from taking place in the state.
Bauchi Hisbah corps also last month arrested six youth over their alleged involvement in organising “sex parties” in Dolam village, Tafawa Balewa local government area (LGA) of the state.
Runsewe explained that a sex party is not all about dressing sexy to a party and dancing, but much worse.
“In the advert of sex party, they will tell you to come with your condoms and at the entrance, you will be tested for sexually transmitted diseases and warned that there is no forceful sex,” he said.
“In a sex party, for example, 20 men are expected to come with 20 women and they will be rotating them like dogs, making love on the floor of the dance floor. This is against our culture, values and law of God.
“In 1994, Gambia and Senegal rejected sex tourism and that is what some immoral people without cultural values want to bring to Nigeria.
“Some people may have their differences with El-Rufai but for me, culturally, I commend him for putting a stop to that anti-God and anti-African activity in his state.
“I know the danger. The moment a girl or guy starts attending sex parties, she or he will never come out from it. It is like hard drug addiction.”
The director-general said Nigerians do not know about all these and that was why they did not seriously resist and speak against it.
“I am appealing to the minister of women affairs, Mrs. Pauline Tallen, to intervene. She can do something to further ensure that such an evil party is never hosted on Nigerian soil,” he said.
“She can go to the national assembly and demand or sponsor a bill that anybody caught in sex party should spend many years in prison.
“We must not wait till the evil act destroys our country. I am also pleading with the media to help us enlighten Nigerians.
“It is not just a party it is the height of immorality. Our culture and tradition do not tolerate such.”
He also urged parents to talk to their children, teach them Nigerian culture and instill good moral values in them “so that Nigeria would not have a generation of evildoers and morally corrupt personalities”.
