Legalization Of Prostitution In Nigeria: David Mark And Ike Ekweremadu Are All For It!

By Rev. Marcel Divine Emeka Okwara CSsR

On this website, naijapals.com, I read with utter shock and amazement the arguments of Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu and the Senate President, David Mark for the legalization of prostitution. Naijapals.com reported that the Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu asked the Senate to consider legalizing prostitution in the country.

Speaking during debate on a motion on the scourge of human trafficking in the country, Ekweremadu said since it has become impossible to stop prostitution in the land, the Senate should consider regulating the act in the country. According to him “We need to regulate prostitution in this country so that if anyone wants to indulge in prostitution, the person should be registered and issued with a license. If we say we want to stop it, it would be difficult. It is done in other countries; let us regulate it by issuing license.” Also speaking on the matter, Senate President David Mark said it is difficult to stop the act of prostitution saying “the FCT administration has been trying to stop it but they are facing stiff resistance because the prostitutes have their association and even their own legal adviser. It is a reasonably organized bad profession.”

The arguments of Ike Ekweremadu and David Mark for the legalization of prostitution are pathetically horrible, and I am in total disagreement with them. Their arguments are not only disingenuously porous but also ridiculous. But before I marshal out my reasons for disagreeing with them, let’s define prostitution. "Prostitution is the act or practice of providing sexual services to another person in return for payment. The person who receives payment for sexual services is called a prostitute."

I am strongly against the legalization of prostitution in Nigeria for various reasons. First, it is a sin against God; secondly, it is the normalization of the abnormal and the legalization of an intrinsically evil act. Prostitution debases the human person created in the image and likeness of God. It profoundly violates the human body which is the temple of the Holy Spirit. It corrodes the human body that is redeemed by the precious Blood of Jesus Christ. Prostitution legalization could potentially pose the greatest assault on the Nigerian family and the society at large. Presently, prostitution is illegal in Nigeria, as a result, those who indulge in it do so with “extreme caution.” But if it is legalized in a country like Nigeria which is already bedeviled and burdened with unemployment crisis, a teeming number of unemployed young women in Nigeria, could easily consider it as a choice of trade and means of survival, after all, it is legally allowed.  Again, legalizing prostitution can seriously weaken the war against the spread of HIV/AIDS.  It’s a gross irresponsibility on the part of Nigerian government to be spending millions of dollars in the fight against HIV/AIDS while at the same time arguing for the legalization of prostitution in Nigeria. You cannot have it both ways! The Nigerian government cannot possibly hold in one hand the sign that reads “War against HIV/AIDS” and on the other the sign that reads “Legalize prostitution now!” Any attempt to hold both signs is hypocritical and disingenuous. Like the saying goes, “You cannot eat your cake and have it.” Instead of legalizing prostitution, all hands should be on deck to vigorously fight against it. Ike Ekweremadu and David Mark should should be deeply ashamed of themselves. They were elected to do those things that the people cannot do best for themselves. They were elected to work for the common good of the people, and not to ruin it. Instead of clamoring for the legalization of prostitution, they should work hard to combat poverty which is mostly the root cause of prostitution in Nigeria. Nigeria is not Europe!  

They said that their support for the legalization of prostitution rests on the apparent difficulty associated in fighting against it. But should the Senate also legalize vices and crimes like armed robbery, kidnapping, terrorism, corruption etc. simply because they are hard to fight against? Come to think of it, Nigeria has been waging war against corruption, especially corruption among government officials for decades, but has not been able to win the war. Should the Senate  now legalize corruption just because of the difficulty in combating it? The Senate President and his deputy are probably Christians and could be seen in Churches on Sunday. Their support for the legalization of prostitution to me is a public denial of Jesus Christ.

Prostitution is not the only problem ravaging Nigeria. As a matter of fact, unsound governance, corruption and incompetence of our political leaders in Nigeria have been giving birth to immoral behaviors like prostitution. If the number of Nigerian women opting into prostitution is on the increase, then something else is driving them to such a dangerous trade. The abject poverty in the land could be responsible for this. And if the Nigerian Senate think that prostitution is such a huge problem, then they should constitute a group of Nigerians drawn from Religious Leaders, Sociologists, Nurses, Medical Doctors, Lawyers, Political Scientists, Students, Mothers, Young Ladies etc to conduct a thorough inquiry on the root cause of prostitution. David Mark and Ike Ekweremadu should ask this group to find out the reasons why young girls go into prostitution despite the risks involved and also make recommendations on how to combat it. I agree, we may not be able to eliminate prostitution completely. Prostitution is as old as the human race. But it can be checkmated. The number of young girls and women going into it can be reduced. Strict laws should be put in place to prosecute parents and guardians whose very actions sometimes drive these young girls to prostitution. Any house, hotels, brothels, streets etc. that allows prostitution should be clamped down. Nigeria should be serious in fighting against this degrading trade. The brothels, streets and places where these girls ply their trade are not hidden. The Police Force should be reminded that prostitution is illegal in Nigeria and should be strongly ordered and empowered to start making arrests, closing down hotels, brothels and clamping down streets where these girls gather for their despicable trade.

I am greatly disappointed with Ike Ekweremadu and David Mark. By their action, they are trying to encourage the future mothers of the nation to go into a trade that is massively dangerous. Issuing out licenses to prostitutes does not solve any problem. The license to prostitute does not prevent the spread of STDs. In a country like Nigeria with little or no institutions and with the rate of bribery and corruption shooting through the roof of the nation, who's going to make sure that sex workers are medically tested from time to time? Who’s going to make sure that the so called legal prostitutes are complying with the rules? Who’s going to monitor the public health? If prostitution is legalized in a country as lawless as Nigeria, who’s going to ascertain that sex workers who are medically unfit to ply their trade are not into the trade thereby endangering the lives of many? In this time and age, advocating for the legalization of prostitution is insanity and clearly demonstrates a flight from faith, reason, tradition and culture. Even in America, prostitution is illegal.

Our “noble” senators- David Mark and Ike Ekweremadu are worried that the fight against prostitution in Nigeria has not yielded any meaningful result. David Mark even stated that Abuja has been waging intensive wars against it but has not been able to bring the trade to a halt. But if they claim ignorance of the reason or reasons why prostitution in Nigeria especially in Abuja has remained undefeated, then I will either accuse them of being unpardonably and woefully ignorant or intellectually dishonest. Prostitution elimination or reduction in Nigeria has been impossible because of abject poverty. I understand there may be some women out there who would willingly go into prostitution irrespective of their status in life. But a huge number of women in Nigeria who go into prostitution do so as the last resort to survival. Many of those girls were directly or indirectly forced into prostitution by unspeakable hardship and by the sheer desire to survive. And many of them do it with shame and wished that situations had been different. If the Nigerian government wants to reduce or eliminate prostitution, then it should fight for justice and economic growth. It should fight against poverty. If the government wants to fight against prostitution, then it should fight against hardship and illiteracy. If our noble senators- David Mark and Ike Ekweeremadu want to deal a serious blow to prostitution and remove the future mothers of the nation from the street, then they should wage persistent wars against bad governance and corruption among their friends and colleagues in government. Legalization of prostitution would only worsen the Nigerian situation!

In the floor of the Nigerian Senate, Ike Ekweremadu and David Mark argued that since there are sex workers all over the world, the law prohibiting prostitution should be repealed.  But does  that justify the legalization of prostitution in Nigeria? Why must Nigeria imitate a bad phenomenon found in other countries? Why can’t our leaders imitate honesty, diligence, incorruptibility, sound governance, and the drive to develop our land that abound in other nations? To our high esteemed Senators, in case you don’t know, there are also corrupt people, kidnappers, armed robbers in other countries. Should we also legalize those vices in Nigeria just because they are in other countries? The enactment of laws should not only be based on need, they should primarily be based on morality and virtues. Nigeria should not be dragged to the lane of moral vacuity. This is how it begins! From legalization of prostitution, people would start clamoring for the legalization of gay-marriage in Nigeria. Human Laws should not be made based on human weakness. Laws are made to checkmate human excesses and not to give in to human weakness. If we liberalize human laws due to human weakness, then the human society will be in trouble. There are so many ills in the Nigerian society already, we don't need to add to it. Prostitution is immoral. Even when laws permit it, it is still immoral. Not everything legal is moral. Some human behaviors may be legal, but immoral. As human beings, we should enact laws based on moral virtues.

A “friend” of mine accused me of arguing purely from the Biblical perspective against prostitution, and that if we set aside the Bible, prostitution is not such a bad idea. But even without arguing from Biblical perspective, prostitution is still a disgusting human behavior. It is bad because it ruins both the girls who practice it and the men who patronize them. It violates the dignity of women who are into it. It turns them into objects to be used and thrown away. It objectifies them. Prostitution assaults the beauty, the body, and the motherhood of women who are into it. Even before the birth of Jesus Christ, prostitution was already considered a terribly evil practice, and prostitutes were listed among the uncleanest in the society. What about the health risks of prostitution- HIV/AIDS, Syphilis, Gonorrhea, and many other sexually transmitted diseases. Socially speaking, prostitution is wrong. Legalization of prostitution is wrong because it attempts to turn bad into good. What is bad is bad! Even where prostitution is legalized, people including the men who patronize prostitutes still belittle sex workers.

In Nigeria for instance, prostitutes are considered the lowest of the low in the society. Women who indulge in prostitution are hardly respected. The entire society disparages them with deep disgust. They are usually seen and not heard. Sometimes, they are denied of their rights and voices. Most Nigerians look at prostitutes as cursed people. The prostitutes in Nigeria, are the lepers of Jesus’ time. Our leaders should do whatever it would take to take them out of such a humiliating trade and not make laws the would allow more of our girls to go into it.

Prostitution can wreak the Nigerian family. It can wreak the family when a married man decides to spend the night with a sex worker and in the process contracts some diseases which he later gives to the wife. Prostitution can wreak the family when a wife decides to do it in order to make some money that her husband was not able to give her and in the process gets some disease which she passes unto the husband. It can wreak a family when a daughter sent to the university by the parents to study combines school and prostitution and in the process is killed, thereby causing heartbreak to the family. It can wreak a family when a son who is in the university decides to spend sometime with a sex worker, and in the process is killed or contracted a disease that renders him sterile or impotent. This too causes grief to his family and to the woman he marries many years later. Prostitution brings nothing but pains and sorrow. When a woman who combined school and prostitution is not able to experience the joy of motherhood later in life due to STDs contracted when she was into prostitution, speechless grief sets in.

Some people consider prostitution as work. But it can never be part of human work. Work, according to Pope John Paul II, is a human activity that arises by the virtue of man’s rationality. It is connected to the very nature of the human person. Work is a human activity that aims at enhancing and transforming the universe. God created us to work. By working, the man and the woman contribute to the ongoing work of creation. Prostitution does not fulfill this role. God worked! Jesus worked! In the gospel John 5:17, Jesus says "My father is working, and I too am working." When we work, we partake in the work of creation; we become co-creators with God. Please, where does a prostitute fit in? Prostitution is the devil's way of making money. A prostitute does not partake in God's activity of creation and on-going creation; she is rather ruining it.

Again, after God had created the man and the woman, he said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it" (Genesis 1:28) Prostitution can make it impossible for many men and women to fulfill this beautiful injunction of God. Studies have shown that sexually transmitted diseases can cause infertility in women and impotence and sterility in men especially when they are not treated on time or badly treated. Women are our mothers. They are our sisters! Prostitution, many times denies them the opportunity of being our sisters and our mothers.

Prostitution in nigeria

Prostitution is a very bad thing to everybody even people that indulge in it sees it as a sin but due to they have no choice than to do it. For instance, a young girl that the mother is very sick and there is no money the doctor said they should deposit money before treatment and she has nobody to run to what then do u expect her to do? Live her poor dying mother? Or sell her body for money yes. What we should be talking about here is fight against poverty, unemployment, corruption, bribeing low standard of living, inflation etc. Becos these things are the most important cause of prostitution. Even me here am a student but my parents can not afford 3 square meal a day let alone giving me money for anything. Another issue is that those that are in position to help you as an individual they would want to take advantage of you before giving you the so called money. So plz lets fight against prostitution is not good.

The dying silence

Praise be 2 God that i have the opportunity to make my own contribution. Prostitution is a disease that has eating very deep to the smallest unit in this country. Its not about ur opinion or mine. Its about the situation on ground. What a world! It is very sad to see our beautiful sisters degrading themselves and selling their dignity for something that does not matter. They throw away their self-virtue for material things. I cry in my heart everyday when i see then on the streets. People even tagged them as Ladies of Easy Virtue. I cried in my heart when it came to my notice that they go to the extent of collecting #200. What a shame. Its really disgusting. I keep asking myself everyday two questions which i think you all need to ask yourself. 1) How do we curb prostitution? If there is a solution for that 2) Where do we start implementing the solution?

Re-Illegal adoption of prostitution in Nigeria

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN

I have been waiting since three days ago to see if the comment that I made concerning the aclaimed reported issue of legalizing prostitution will be published or not but it is unfortunate that our people always refused to know the truth, see the truth and accept it.Any way let not start pointing accusing fingers on any body as I give the benefit of thought that my comment will stil be published and I hope we will do all we can to educate and liberate Africans from the shackles of all these deceits.

Payment for prostitution is

Payment for prostitution is not necessarily for cash, but for any form of gratification - contracts, social status, admissions etc. A very sad reflection of the debased level that our society has descended into. As opined by other commentators, as long as opportunities are denied the large generality of Nigerians, prostitution and other evil will continue to thrive and challenging to eradicate. Now young teenage girls are not only selling their bodies, but selling babies for "proceeds". We should not blame Mark and Ekweremandu - they are just examples of the clueless leaders that lack the morals, legitimacy and intellect to address such complex social issues from their root cause(s). Until we act, we will only debate without real action and change.

WHY ARE THERE PROSTITUTES IN NIGERIA?

 Stop Corruption in Nigeria and i promise you  my brother,there will be no prostitutes in Nigeria after a few years.

Nigerian prostitutes unlike prostitutes in the west are economic prostitutes,same in former east bloc countries, and majority do not prostitute by choice or to feed a drug habit.

Rather than allowing Ekweramadu have cheap publicity the society should be pointing out the fact that the present government,which he is part of,& previous governments have only helped increase prostitute numbers by their kleptomania & it would be nice to adopt the death penalty for corruption as that will stop prostitution by dealing with the root cause.

WHO IS A PROSTITUTE? - 2

ONE MAY EVEN WONDER WHETHER THE OBLIGATION OF HUSBANDS TO PROVIDE FOR THE MATERIAL WELLBEING OF THEIR WIVES IS CONSIDERATION FOR THEIR DUTY TO ALSO SATISFY THEM SEXUALLY IN CONTINUOUS CONSUMATION OF THE MARRIAGE OR CAN IT BE VIEWED AS OUTSIDE THE GENERIC DEFINITION OF PROSTITUTION? DOES IT MEAN THAT ONLY TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE CEREMONY, CHURCH BLESSING, ISLAMIC MARRIAGE OR MARRIAGE UNDER THE MARTRIMONIAL CAUSES ACT OF 1970 OR A COMBINATION THEREOF CONSTITUTE THE TIPPING POINT BETWEEN PROSTITUTION AND OTHERWISE?WHAT OF CONCUBINES WHO PREFER TO PROVIDE THEIR OWN BREAD AND SHELTER BUT JUST WANT TO BE ATTACHED TO A MAN IN OTHER TO SAVE THEM FROM REPROACH?

POLITICAL RULERS MUST GET SERIOUS AND REPAIR THE ECONOMY AND INFRASTRUCTURE FOR PEOPLE TO FIND AND CREATE JOBS INSTEAD OF CHASING SHADOWS.

WHO IS A PROSTITUTE? - 1

IF A PROSTITUTE IS ANY PERSON WHO EXCHANGES SEXUAL FAVOURS FOR MONEY OR MATERIAL BENEFITS, WHO THEN IS A PROSTITUTE AND WHO IS NOT?IS THE TIMING OF THE EXCHANGE THE MOST SIGNIFICANT FACTOR OR THE PLACE WHERE THE SEXUAL ACTIVITY TOOK PLACE OR THE GENDER OF THE PARTIES INVOLVED?DO BOY/GIRL FRIENDS, SUGAR MUMMIES AND SUGAR DADIES COMMIT PROSTITUTION SINCE VALUABLE CONSIDERATION IS INVOLVED?WHAT OF "MARRIED" WOMEN WHO OPERATE FROM THEIR HUSBANDS' HOUSES BUT HAVE TO GO THE EXTRA MILE AS "BREAD WINNERS"?

LEGALISE ALL ILLEGALITIES

PORNOGRAPHY,LESBIANISM,HOMOSEXUALITY,PEDOPHILIA,ARMED ROBBERY,CORRUPTION ETC SHOULD THEN BE LEGALISED SO THAT GOVERNMENT CAN CONTROL SANITY IN THE SUBSECTORS OF THE ECONOMY AND COLLECT TAXES FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE MACROECONOMY.LEGALISING ONLY PROSTITUTION IS NOT FAR REACHING ENOUGH.

Sahara newspaper made to be the voice to save the dying Nigeria

Sahara Newspapers you are made to be a voice of truth for dying Nigeria with cancer. To save Nigeria needs the element of truth not the will of men.Fear not for your Lord Christ is the creator of the Smith that forms the weapons against you, and the destroyer that uses the weapon to destroy, therefore no weapon formed against you shall prosper. Let's join hands together to save Nigeria from the hands of robbers and terorrists.Isaiah 54:16, 17)

Sahara Newspapers you are playing with me

Saharah Newspapers if you removed my comment again I will ask the angels of information to remove you from service. thereore be careful by playing with your Lord.Christ Commander. I chose you, you didnt chose me. Warned.

Truth you will not like to hear

Who is a harlot? Spititual harlot is money, prosperity and Holy Ghost that seeks the largeness of Christ Kingdom. Natural harlot is men or women who seek favor or give favor either with cash or kind with sex or after sex. Judah gave gift of his rod to Tamar who played the game of the harlot with her father inlaw. Some men of power in Nigeria who played the game of harlot with their daughter inlaw are Judah of Nigeria.

Nigeria The Jericho of Rehab the harlot.

Which one is better raping with killings or open harloting? Jesus Christ came from the linage of a harlot Rehab of Jericho. Rehab married to Salmon after the fall of Jericho. Salmon is the father of Buaz, the father of Obed of Ruth and Naomi, Obed the father of Jesse the father of King David. Even Tamar the Mother that brought the linage of Judah in the world played the game of harlot with her father inlaw Judah. You are all inderect Jihadist anti women. Can Nigerians speak truth of the evils committed by Rev fathers against their sons and daughters with sex. Stone them to death if you are holy before God in secret or drop your stone John8:1-

Nigeria is Jericho of Rahab the Harlot

Commander Samyoung Onwuzulike open the book of life for all Nigerians with Gospel of John 8:1- Stone them to death if you have not sleep with a woman after you rewards her with a favor to give her money or contract etc.women stone them if you have not sleep with a man after you received gift from him? Both the receiver and giver of the gifts after sleeping with a woman are guilty. Even Professors who give favor with marking the students pass after or with promise of sex.

D fear of God is d begining of WISDOM

Dis country can only move on if we put God first in evryting we do nowing that we are accountable to Him. Unfortunately people tends to overlook God's commands which is why things will never normalize. How can a sane person who eats tru his mouth and excretes tru his anus say such a disgusting thing? Whoever supports d legalization of prostitution should use his children/relative to set up example for others. Prostitution is a VERY BIG SIN against God and against humanity, but its unfortunate dat combating it is becoming hard bcos d so called leaders are their major clients who pays dem in hard currencies, buys dem exotic cars, mansions and at d end use some of dem to renew their rituals. If we can only rem dat wat matters is not how much we have, but how we made dem bcos at d end, no pin will go wit u wen death comes calling, nd God is not interested if ur money can buy d whole world.

@ AU CITIZEN

You are known for your extreme and hate filled comments on this site. Your Sharia will solve no problem in this country; if it will how come the so-called sharia states have not become something of an eldorado on earth. Think of another hateful message to post...

Sad...

Nigeria is sinking under a plethora of problems and these bastards are busy legislating about prostitution. These people are mad, clearly out of tune with the country's realities.

Nigeria - twinned with Sodom & Gommorah

Someone who has the username, Rommel, on this site placed a comment on a story about Sullivan Chime. He shockingly said that if a female in law offered up her private parts, then you should partake of this. This shows the amoral attitude of Nigerians to sex. Many, even in liberal USA or Europe, would be outraged if an in law approached them for sex as they actually attach moral connotations to sex, unlike (especially southern) Nigerians. Sex should never happen outside of marriage. That 2 humans can engage in something so sacred for money is evil. And it's beyond evil that a lawmaker can suggest that this should be legal. Nigeria needs sharia in all of the 36 states and an Iranian style islamic revolution. End of story.

Immorality in Nigeria is now beyond belief

That Ekweremadu in such a responsible position could say this abomination, and then deny it blatantly shows all that is wrong with Nigeria. People have no decency, no honour, no faith and no loyalty. Collect all these people together and you have a sick society. Sadly, Rev, your religion hasn't helped. They collect money from these sex fiends and would give them reserved spaces in church, even make them knights of the church, knowing they have mistresses and secret kids littered all over the place. And the born again prosperity gospel has turned Nigerians into people who would gladly kill their own family for money and money making rituals. Until the population decide to reform themselves into decent people, society will continue to be immoral and sick.

Social Rogues

Don't mind d clowns in d upper legislative chamber,they're sin-nators & disciples of satan.Ekweremadu is a glorified pimp, he calls 4 d law 2 protect his client & investment,they're all anointed knights in d chapel ala sodom &gommarah.

DAVID MARK ONCE SAID MOBILE PHONES WERE NOT FOR THE POOR.NOT LONG AFTER, TELECOMS SECTOR BECAME A SIGNIFICANT CONTRIBUTOR TO OUR GDP AND POVERTY ALLEVIATION.THIS UNDERSCORES THE POVERTY OF IDEAS OF THE PEOPLE WHO OCCUPY THE COMMANDING HEIGHTS OF POLITICAL POWER IN NIGERIA.DAVID MARK, LIKE MANY OTHER MEMBERS OF THAT IGNOBLE ELITE, HAS BEEN FEEDING FAT ON THE COMMON MAN FOR DECADES.FROM THE OBNOXIOUS 'ABANDONED PROPERTY IMPLEMENTATION' AFTER THE CIVIL WAR TO FEDERAL MINISTER OF COMMUNICATIONS AND NOW SENATE PRESIDENT OF THE "FRN", ONE WONDERS WHAT HE HAS CONTRIBUTED TO NIGERIA IN CONCRETE TERMS.THE ECONOMICS OF HIS LEGACY OF PUBLIC "SERVICE" HAVE CONTRIBUTED SIGNIFICANTLY TO POVERTY OF THE MASSES AND SUBSEQUENT SPITE IN THE RATE OF PROSTITUTION FOR WHICH HIS PANACEA IS LEGALISATION.WHAT A CONTRIBUTION TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE COUNTRY FOR WHICH HE WILL SOON BE AWARDED GCON LIKE THE REST IF HIS ILK.PEOPLE SHOULD SPEAK TRUTH TO POWER AND AVOID COSTLY SOCIAL UPHEAVALS.

Senator Ekweremadu is helping David Mark destroy Igbo girls...,

Ekweremadu, had invested looted millions in his " brothel Industry Limited " at Enugu and beyond to absorb 60,000 jobless Igbo girls who, after NYSC, have no prospect of getting gainful employment in SE or in any other part of Nigeria because of political, tribal and religious reasons. These girls are forced by wants and daily desires to engage in sex-sales. Enugu and Abuja politicians are their customers. Ekweremadu wants his brothel industries in Nigeria to flourish and boom, therefore, he needs legislative protections for "young and old beautiful raw materials" that feed his brothel industry. Ekeremadu is selected and rigged into the Senate by Hausa-Fulani Ex-military leaders whose interests he serves.Sorry,he is is foolish and ignorant of the damages his brothel industry is causing to Igbo graduate jobless girls , now, labeled "unmarriageable" girls. One wonders if Senator Ekweremadu is helping David Mark destroy Igbo girls, Igbo wives and Igbo-Race.Still wondering, Umu Oke.

SHADOW - YOU ARE SHORT, SHARP AND SPOT ON - 2

BUT THE DYSFUNCTION IN NIGERIA IS ATTRIBUTABLE TO OVERCONCENTRATION OF POWER AND RESOURCES IN ABUJA WHICH ENCOURAGES THE EMERGENCE OF BANDS OF BRIGANDS FOR COMPETITION TO STEAL OUR COLLECTIVE PATRIMONT FROM THE LOCAN GOVERNMENT LEVEL TO THE FEDERAL LEVEL SUCH THAT CORRUPTION KEEP INCREASING INSTEAD OF REDUCING.A RETURN TO TRUE POLITICAL AND FISCAL FEDERALISM BASED ON THE SIX GEOPOLITICAL ZONES OF THE COUNTRY AND ANCHORED ON CONSTITUTIONAL ONE TERM ROTATIONAL PRESIDENCY WILL GO A LONG WAY IN SORTING NIGERIA OUT.SO INSTEAD OF DISSIPATING THEIR ENERGIES ON FRIVOLITIES, ONE WOULD EXPECT THE SENATE PRESIDENT AND HIS DEPUTY TO CHAMPION THE CONVOCATION OF A NATIONAL CONSTITUTIONAL CONFERENCE TO DISCUSS AND AGREE ON STRATEGIC SOLUTIONS TO NIGERIA'S PROBLEMS INSTEAD OF THE SERIAL GOOFING THEY HAVE BEEN INDULGING ON..

SHADOW - YOU ARE SHORT, SHARP AND SPOT ON - 1

PRECISION AND CONCISENESS APTLY DESCRIBE YOUR CONTRIBUTION.PROSTITUTION , LIKE MANY SOCIAL VICES ARE EFFECTS OF MORE FUNDAMENTAL CAUSES THE ULTIMATE OF WHICH CAN BE UNEARTHED THROUGH BACKWARD REASONING.FOR THE INTELLECTUALLY LAZY OR POLITICALLY UNWILLING,THEY WOULD RATHER DWELL ON THE EFFECTS THAN THE HARDER BUT MORE STRATEGIC WORK OF FIGURING OUT THE KERNEL OF THE PROBLEM BUT PREFER TO GIVE THE PUBLIC THE IMPRESSION OF ACTIVITY IN SELFLESS PUBLIC SERVICE.
ALL POLITICIANS ARE GUILTY OF SHORT CHANGING THE ELECTORATE.IF THERE IS GOOD GOVERNANCE AND NIGERIA'S SOCIO ECONOMIC INFRASTRUCTURE IS FIXED,GENERAL ECONOMIC ACTIVITY WILL PICK UP, UNEMPLOYMENT WILL REDUCE, CRIME AND PROSTITUTION WILL REDUCE AND THERE WILL BE NO NEED TO LEGALISE PROSTITUTION.

Moral Highground

Stop reading this article after the second paragraph. The Rev. Marcel Divine Emeka Okwara CSsR, whoever gave you the moral authority to judge in the name of God. We all know the likes of Ekweremadu and the Senate President, David Mark have no morals or ethics or any other motive but personal greed or lusts in order to call for legalizing prostitution, but the narcissitic hypocrisy of the so called men of cloth all over the world, but especially in Nigeria is beyond belief. Nigeria has been raped for over 51 years, a prostitute has more moral fibre than most Nigerians.

I want to warn you,

I want to warn you, brother/sister to repent now and come back to God that created you. Supporting those that disgarce the temple of God will not bring any good thing to you. I see you may be a prostitute, but many have told us why they became prostitutes and never declared that they were doing the right thing.
God loves you so come back to him. The police chase those that commit crime and that include prostitutes. You will only blame them if they are taking money from prostitutes and allow them to sell their bodies for money. It takes the strongest demon to make a prostitute. They are shameless and aid robbers and muderers in their devilish acts. You don't like the Bible, so you find it difficult to believe that Prostitutes are among those listed that will never enter into the kingdom of God.

Please use your brains!

Young man! You are talking shit! Have you not noticed that we have not been able to stop a lot of things- ritual killings, robbery, corruption etc- why not clamour for those to be legalized also because a lot of people like to do it? Moreover if can read and understand you will discover that the writer did not premised his argument on religion.. Gather info on South Africa and you will know what sexual immorality can do!

Ok, the club of cult guys wants to act

Ok, the club of cult guys wants to act to let us know they eat from being dirty. CBN governor acted religious, and Christian leaders acted secularly, now the ogbenis and cutltism is talking us we need to be like the pigs in spirits for them to subjudgate us to their oppressions. Now I get it. Think about electricity and they will not insteasd they deviate to think about God's anger to fall soon and envelop all as they have already mortgage their own lives to achieving anything they wish by sacrifices and waiting for God's anger. We aint dying with you pigs.

coward acting act

Ekwuerenmadu is not only acting out cowardice but to let sambo know that he is not at any war with him if he, sambo, is ready to compete for the presidency; and his portofolio protection gives him away to catapaulting his name afterward with a stinking proposal, and telling us that he is not there to better his name anyway but to selfishly betray those who look up to him. This is not the right time to talk, just work the work and shut up. Igbo man or woman proposals are very important points for criticizm at this point, mind your advisers as you represent while we wait till 2015.

Moreover, Since We ........

Moreover, since we cannot stop bribery in Nigeria, we should legalize bribery.
Since we cannot stop corruption, lets legalize it
Since we cannot stop nepotism, lets let us legalize nepotism
Since we cannot construct good roads in Nigeria, let us legalize bad roads
And since we cannot conduct a cheat-free exams in our educational system, we should legalize examination malpractice. And the list goes on ad infinitum, Ekweremadu and Mark. Senators you call your selves. None of you would qualify for a page let alone senator.

Face Facts

Prostitution has existed in one form or the other since the begging of time it is not going away. State and religion need to be separated. I'm all for legalizing prostitution the issue is there are too meany problems on ground to focus on than prostitution. The useless Nigerian police should be made realize the they are the police and they answer to the constitution not the Bible or the Quran. When I hear about them harassing those young ladies I'm disgusted.
