Agege LG, others, hold book presentation to address social vices

Geared towards correcting social vices currently bedeviling the society, BNA Links Venture in conjunction with Agege Local Government and Medical Women Association of Nigeria (MWAN) held a public presentation of four moral education comic series, tackling teenage pregnancy, drug abuse and rape.

During the presentation, author, Nureni Bakare said it has become rare to find an institution void of social vices in the society today. He said, the comic books are written in simple and concise language with colourful and beautiful illustrations to promote good reading culture amongst children. Bakare stressed the need for every home to have copies of the books, so that every child would be aware of the danger and consequence of social vices from an early age.

The President of MWAN, Lagos Branch, Omowunmi Bakare commended the author on his desire to create awareness and correct societal ills and advised youths to contribute positively to the society.

Bakare reiterated the need to curb social vices as they affect the society as a whole.

She further advised parents to create time for their children, noting that one of the major causes of social vices is over exposure to hard drugs, which is now very common and is causing a lot of problems for the youths and the society.
