Pastor Joshua Olusegun of Christ Reigns Church has warned youths not to turn Valentine’s Day celebration to sex parties.
Olusegun issued the warning in Ilorin when he spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
He observed that most people thought Valentine’s Day celebration was a time to copulate with opposite sex, and said the thought was not correct.
“It is not for sex parties as thought by many teenagers and youths. They can give out gifts, visit beautiful places around and as well care for one another as a sign of celebration.
“We need to erase the mentality of engaging in sexual acts to show love as widely believed by our youths,” he said.
He warned youths not to lose their virginity all in the name of celebrating Valentine’s Day.
The cleric stressed the need for religious leaders to preach morality to their followers on the ethics of Valentine celebration.
He also warned that the celebration is for adults and not minors who engaged in immoral acts in the name of Valentine.
