In a statement signed by the group’s spokesperson, Muhammad Ibrahim, on Friday, August 14, 2020, AYCC said it is concerned by the exposure of Nigerian youths to ‘sexual contamination’.

The group said the exposure of Nigerian youths to sexual content is fueling a culture of indecency, immorality and increasing cases of sexual misbehavior.

Arewa youth in a two page letter addressed to the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, called on the government to quickly intervene in blocking immoral and sexual sites.

Similarly, they suggested that individuals or companies that refuse to comply with the ban should be fined in billions.

A part of the statement reads;

we’re confident that your intervention can greatly block or cripple the emerging new order of indecency, immorality, and increasing cases of sexual behaviors. Sexualized interactions, immoral communications, exposure to pornography, online dating and other social ills. 

“This is sacrosanct, as the phenomena is growing rapidly  everyday. we must do something as a nation that believe in christianity and Islam even though we claim to be secular, yet no religion or culture , tribe or section of Nigerians can justify the incestous exposure of our youth to sexual contamination”.

However , the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, in response on his Twitter account, said the group should redirect the request instead to the Ministry of Information and Culture, headed by Lai Mohammed.
