A clergyman, Sheikh AbdulHakeem Oganija, has called on the Nigerian Council of Censors to impose tougher penalties on film producers who promote nudity in their films.
According to him, the measure will encourage producers to make positive films that will promote decency and instill good morals in the younger generation.
According to him, several promiscuous films have harmed the moral education of many young boys and girls who are supposed to become responsible leaders of the country.
“The Council of Censors must wake up from its sleep to eradicate promiscuity and other destructive tendencies in film productions, to protect the good image of the country,” he said.
The cleric urged the federal government to give the Nigerian Censorship Council an enabling environment that will allow it to perform its functions optimally.
The Islamic cleric suggested that the board should have offices in all states of the federation.
According to him, this will facilitate access to markets in order to get rid of several nudity films that are sold.
Oganija called on parents and guardians to always warn their children not to engage in immoral acts, especially during this time of Ramadan.
“It will encourage them to win the Ramadan season reward,” he said. (NOPE)
