Govt Bans Planned 72-Hour Kissing Marathon Event In Ekiti

 



Ekiti State Government has banned a “3-Day Kissing Marathon Event” called “Kiss-a-Thon”, scheduled to commence on Friday, July 7, 2023.


In a letter addressed to the Secretary, Ekiti State Hoteliers’ Association and signed by Adelusi A. L, for  the Permanent Secretary, Dele Ogunsemoyin,  Ministry of Arts, Culture and Tourism, warned Hoteliers’ against such unhealthy and immoral acts in their facilities.


“Kiss-A-Thon”, as an event is not only absurd, unhealthy, immoral and capable of denigrating the image of the state, it is a programme that runs counter to the values of the people of the state and therefore capable of plunging our youths morally backward,” the statement read


 According to the organisers, it was planned in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the longest kissing Marathon.


“The Ministry of Arts, Culture and Tourism hereby prohibits the hosting of such event or any other events like it in any facility that wishes to continue to operate lawfully in Ekiti State”


“You are hereby requested to convey the content of this notice to the members of Ekiti State Hoteliers’ Association to effectively monitor their outlets against being used negatively to cause embarrassment to the government and people of Ekiti State.”
