Kenya hails Nigeria over protection of girl-child


The Nigerian Government has been commended for protecting the dignity of the girl-child.

A pan African non-governmental Organization, NGO, on female gender protection and advancement made commendation following the stance of the National Council for Arts and Culture, NCAC, on the recent lekki nude dance video that went viral.

The Kenya-based Women Arise in Africa, WAA, organization in a statement noted that the seeming growth of slavish entertainment offering to corrupt the souls of young female persons and also paint women as slaves to mundane and unacceptable recreation, must be stopped by all legal process before it becomes a frankinstain monster.

“We are not unmindful of the negative impact of this trend if the Nigerian government allows it to fester, so the prompt response and interventions by relevant agencies in Nigeria resonate with us and all good loving people of Africa who prides in the age-long culture of honour and dignity to women and the girl child,” the statement added.

The Nigerian Government through the Director General, NCAC, Otunba Segun Runsewe, and the Lagos State Government had earlier issued separate statements calling for the prosecution of the artist known as Tekno for indecent exposure of young female persons and ridiculing the women folks in the process in an open cabin in public place in Lekki, Lagos.
