The National Council of Women Societies (NCWS) and the National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC) are to jointly embark steps to sensitise the youth against nudity.
Both Councils met at the headquarters of NCAC in Abuja with a common resolve aimed at redirecting the drift to moral decadence especially among young women which they both agreed was getting out of hand.
Speaking during the meeting, the National President of the NCWS, Dr. Laraba Shoda, who led members of her executive, condemned the upsurge in public display of nudity citing the recent video spectacle of near-naked girls dancing in full public glare inside a transparent van in Lagos.
She described another scenario where a young lady walked into a mall completely naked lamenting that such indecent behaviour by females particularly, negates the very essence of our culture which promotes the dignity of the African woman.
Shoda said there was the need to create television programmes with good cultural content unlike what obtains now just as she extolled NCAC for taking the lead in the campaign against the debasement of the African culture which according to her promotes high moral values amongst young women.
On his part, the NCAC Director-General, Otunba Segun Runsewe said the partnership between women societies and the NCAC will signal a new dawn in the crusade against cultural degeneration and foreign erosion of our culture.
He was upbeat that with the NCWS speaking up and with the new found collaboration with the NCAC, the time has come to nip the menace in the bud in order to avert another future crisis in the country.
