4 She said that the campaign centred on movie guides as set by the board.

5 She said that the board would also engage students on hate speech, censorship and movie classification.

6 She further said that the exercise was designed to re-orient the youths on viewer discretion, symbols and hate speech.

7 Sangari also said that a similar campaign would be held in secondary schools in the state to reduce the proliferation of un-censored films in circulation.

8 She said the campaign had become imperative due to the prevalence of the internet and modern technology.

9 According to her, the nation’s youths have become  exposed to all sorts of movies, some of which may harm their moral and social lives.

10 Sangari advised parents to adhere to the classification guidelines to minimise exposure of the children to movies restricted for their ages.
