The President of National Council of Women Societies (NCWS), Mrs Laraba Shoda had paid  a courtesy visit with her executive members to the National Council for Arts and Culture headquarters at Abuja, Nigeria on Friday, August 16, 2019.
Speaking at the meeting, Dr. Laraba Shoda condemned the upsurge in public display of nudity citing the recent video going viral 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 such indecent behaviours by females particularly, negates the very essence of our culture which promotes the dignity of the African woman.
Dr. Shoda said there was the need to create television programs with good cultural content unlike what is in vogue 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 of interest between the Women Societies and the NCAC will signal a new dawn in the crusade against cultural degeneration and foreign erosion of our culture.
Runsewe said the time has come to nip the menace in the bud in order to avert another future crisis in the country.
He informed Nigerians that his council is working on legislation with the National Assembly to curb the negative trend of public nudity while also packaging a culture friendly television program to excite the youths with the hope of reestablishing our esteemed cultural values of time past.
Both councils have decided to embark on far reaching youth sensitisation initiatives and insisting that the Nigerian cultural content should be key in our entertainment and reality events.
