Kiss-a-thon promoters risk three-year in prison – Ekiti Govt 

    Published By:

    The Ekiti State Government warned on Thursday that anyone involved in the planned kiss-a-thon, which will begin in the state on Friday and aims to break the Guinness World Record, risked three years in prison.

    Dayo Apata, the state’s Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, said that owners or managers of any venue used to conduct such event in the state would suffer the same fate apart from shutting it down.

    A group in the state, had planned the three-day (72-hour) kissing event billed to be held in Ekiti between July 7 and July 10, saying the three-day kissing marathon was “an attempt to break the GWR for the longest kissing marathon.”

    Speaking on Thursday, Apeta said: “The planned kiss-a-thon programme is contrary to sections 148 and 150 of the Criminal Law (2021) which prohibits indecent acts and practices in the state, and anyone who violates the law is guilty of felony and is liable to imprisonment for three years.

    “Any person or corporate body that allows himself/herself and facilities to be used in executing the proposed programme in the state would be prosecuted before an appropriate court.”

    The state government described the act as immoral and unhealthy, saying suche event cannot hold in Ekiti.

    “The state government has considered the proposed event as an indecent act, absurd, unhealthy and capable of denigrating the image of Ekiti State and same is contrary to the law of Ekiti State, particularly sections 148 and 150 Criminal Law no 21 of 2021 which prohibits indecent acts and practices in Ekiti State.

    “Consequently, no individual or corporate body is allowed to embark upon and/or execute the proposed kiss-a-thon in Ekiti State. Any person and/or corporate body that allows himself or herself and /or facilities to be used in executing/ propagating the proposed programme in Ekiti State will be prosecuted before the appropriate court and dealt with according to the law.”
