The Ekiti state Government has swiftly banned a planned ‘kiss-a-thon’ in the state meant to set a Guinness world record of longest kissing marathon.

The state Government had written a letter to the hoteliers association warning them about the event which is scheduled for 7th of July.

The government through its ministry of arts culture and tourism stated that the kiss-a-thon was absurd, unhealthy, immoral and capable of denigrating the image of the state.

They called on hoteliers to be wary of the organizers and desist from allowing such an event be held on their premises.

MINISTRY OF ARTS, CULTURE AND TOURISM


The Secretary,

Ekiti State Hoteliers’ Association, Ekiti State.


HOSTING OF A 3-DAY ‘KISSING MARATHON’ TAGGED KISS-A-THON IN EKITI STATE:

OFFICIAL PROHIBITION NOTICE.


The attention of the State Government has been drawn to a planned hosting of ‘Kiss-a-thon’ in Ekiti State. According to information at the disposal of this Ministry, kiss-a-thon, a 3-day kissing marathon event, has been scheduled to hold on 7* of July, 2023 at one of the hospitality outlets in the State. This event is said to be planned towards setting a Guinness World Record.

“Kiss-a-thon” as an event is not only absurd, unhealthy, immoral and capable of denigrating the image of the state, it is a programme that runs counter to the values of the people of the state and therefore capable of plunging our Youths morally backward.


In view of the foregoing, the Ministry of Arts, Culture and Tourism hereby prohibits the hosting of such event or any other events like it in any facility that wishes to continue to operate lawfully in Ekiti State.

Sequel to the above, you are hereby requested to convey the content of this Notice to the members of Ekiti State Hoteliers’ Association to effectively monitor their outlets against being used negatively to cause embarrassment to the Government and People of Ekiti State.


Thank you.

Adelusi A.
for: Permanent Secretary

This coming after Chef Dammy of the state had completed her cook-a-thon of 120 hours to beat the Hilda Baci GWR locally.
