Valentine: Shun Immoral Vices, Cleric Cautions Youths
The Roman Catholic Bishop of Minna Diocese, Martins Uzoukwu, has cautioned the youths to desist from indulging immoral vices and sinful acts, especially fornication, while they celebrate Valentine’s Day.
Uzoukwu told newsmen in an interview in Minna on Wednesday that youths should rather be dedicated to building a viable relationship that could result in marriage.
Apart from the youth’s attitude to the event, he also advised Nigerians to show goodwill and love during and after the Valentine’s Day.
He urged the public to demonstrate love towards their neigbours, irrespective of religious, ethnic and political leanings, stressing that love was required to build a strong nation.
The bishop further advised the youth to embrace goodwill and to always shun fornication and drug abuse, describing fornication as one of the greatest sins of mankind.
“We should collectively stay away from anything that will keep God far from us by adhering strictly to our religious obligations,” he cautioned.
