ABUJA CARNIVAL, AN ABUSE OF INNOCENT GIRLS!
Icheokudotcom condemns in an unequivocal term the abuse of innocent young girls for the sexual proclivities of these Abuja carnival organizers and watchers. This is because a country, Nigeria, which will not tolerate the hosting and staging of a Miss World beauty pageant on grounds that it is anti - their religious viewpoints and beliefs, will readily acquiesce to the display of nude girls just for a mere festival? What a double-standard of speaking in a bifurcated manner? Which of these, the bikini-cladding or bare-breast damsels, do the mullahs of Nigeria consider to be more offensive ? The four day event Abuja Cultural Carnival of 23rd of November, 2008 themed as 'the promotion and celebration of humanity, dignity and identity of Nigerians as a people ready to live together in the undivided acceptance of Abuja as their capital city' was nearly marred by a display of explicit girls by Kogi State. In a speech, Dr Ahmed Yerima, Director-General Abuja Carnival Committee, said Kogi was disqualified from all the contests for parading naked girls!
