Chastity is imperative in the development of the psychological make-up of individuals in a society. Chastity will constrain a person from engaging in ignominious and highly despicable act. Chastity comes with a puritanical mindset and a solid value system, Chastity purge out lascivious thought from the mind of a disciplined person.
I was downcast, Sometimes ago when i read the story of a student of Adekunle Ajasin University, Ondo state, who was raped by a military personnel. The rapist is a security officer who is supposed to protect the territorial integrity of the country, a solider is expected to preserve and protect Law and order, now it has happened again with Uwa. A country will disintegrate into the abyss, if the lawmakers become the law-breakers.
The soldier who had a carnal knowledge of the damsel who is a student of AAUA, should be taken to a psychiatric hospital for proper psychological examination, he should be dismissed along with his colleagues who watched him at the check-point, where he forcefully told the lady to alight from the bus convening her and other students.
Rape is becoming a recurring decimal in the Nigerian-state, our men are very susceptible to this ugly trend in our society, the chronic state of high sexual fixation and the illicit discharge of sexual pleasure is alarming. The modicum of civility has gone into oblivion in our country, our value system is diminishing. The Nigerian-state put up a carefree attitude towards this appalling situation.
The rate of rape in the Nigerian-state is a pointer to the fact that our country celebrate ignominy and frivolous activities. The country is not paying attention to the quality of information and orientation the people get from the media and the entertainment industry. Our media-outlets display visuals that distort the value-system of their heterogenous audience, the regulatory bodies that should sanction the media and entertainment industry are not effectual in the discharge of their duty.
The country is drenched in the pool of eroticism, children of tender age are exposed to sexual content that triggers their libidinous inclination, they are fully fixated to the gratification of sexual desire when their mental construct is highly vulnerable to process sexual information.
Our musicians are morally bankrupt, they do not think before they release their music to the public domain. Cacophonous music with erotic content is gaining relevance in the media. The government should do everything humanly possible to curtail the circulation of sexual content without Proper Censorship.
The country should support the promotion of right Values via the media. Media outlets that flout ethical conduct in their reportage and orientation of the public should be sanctioned.
The government should punish media outlets that televise Big Brother Naija, that show is distorting the value system of youths in Nigeria, that show reflect the insanity in the Nigerian-state, that show depict the deficit of leadership and parental control in Nigeria. BIG BROTHER NAIJA is a reflection of the psychopathic disposition of our youth in their quest to garner wealth, the show depict the catastrophic nature of the posterity of Nigeria.
The government should not rack her brain in trying to understand the cause of rape in the country, our citizens have hyperactive sexual desire because of the over-glamorization of eroticism.
