The National Coordinator, Association for Universal Moral Education Nigeria, Rev. Sis. Therese Nwodo, has identified failed parenting as reason for the widely-reported s*x scandal involving ex-Anambra beauty queen.
The Catholic Sister said this while speaking to newsmen on Monday in preparation for the second annual conference of the association.
She said, “The lesbianism story about the beauty queen is unfortunate; it is symptomatic of what is going on in the society now. Our values have gone down; parents are no longer available to teach their children what is socially acceptable.
“Whatever the case, whether she was lured or coerced, if the values were there she should have had the character to say no but because society itself rewards such act, she fell for it, so we must look at our value system again.
“But this is not the time for a blame game. Somebody is now traumatised and we should make effort to bring her back into the society to become a normal human again
The Catholic Sister however called on the Nigerian public to offer the beauty queen psychological and spiritual support to overcome the crisis, rather than traumatise her.
While adding that peer and societal influence is to be blamed for the loss of values and immoral behaviors exhibited by youths, she called on parents to cultivate a stronger relationship with their children.
