The governor, who stated this in Calabar during the 2016 World Aids Day, said the best virtue any girl or woman would give to her husband is to get married as a virgin, a core value Africans are known for.
Part of his speech reads….
“I am emphasizing on this core value because I married my wife as a virgin and she has remain faithful. So I charge all women to remain faithful to their spouses.Condom is not a guarantee to safe sexual life. It can fail one. There is no alternative to abstinence in sex life.”
He noted that although poverty and some social pressure may have pushed many young girls into early exposure, there is need to teach our upcoming youths the true values of Africa which frowns at immorality which is now the order of the day. In his final words he said, Nigerians should be cautious of anything that can make them come in close contact with unsterilized kits used for barbing and hairdressing.
