Wife of Lagos State Governor Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu has appealed to Nigerian youths to shun ungodly, immoral and bestial acts.
Mrs Sanwo-Olu stated this at a special Eid-el-Fitr event hosted by the state’s first family at Lagos House, Alausa, Ikeja to commemorate the end of Ramadan, a spokesperson in her office Olubukonla Nwonah said in a statement.
Her comments on bestiality come in the wake of reports of women sleeping with dogs.
Mrs Sanwo-Olu said, “As we bask in the euphoria of this sacred celebration, it is also important to seize the opportunity of this spiritual exercise to admonish our children and youths to shun all ungodly, immoral, and bestial acts.
“As parents and guardians too, we must lead by example and pay closer attention to the totality of what concerns our children and wards. It is okay to intrude into their privacy and ensure that we guide them on the right path.”
The governor’s wife also appealed to stakeholders in the education sector to work towards resolving the prolonged strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) so that students can return to school.
“Our children need to go back to school. It is a ticking time bomb when our children sit at home doing nothing. The devil will find work for the idle hands. Our children, those in the universities, sitting down at home for two months is not a plus for us and so anytime we have the opportunity, we as parents, especially mothers, should continue speaking up.
“The federal universities are shut down as a result of the ASUU strike. We plead and plead that God will help us to resolve this issue. I don’t feel comfortable that the students are at home and whatever it takes, all hands must be on deck to ensure that they go back to school,” she said.
