Ibadan — National Council of Muslim Youth (NACOMYO) has vowed to disrupt the forthcoming Miss World contest taking place in Abuja in November this year.
NACOMYO, in a release signed by its National President, Alhaji Ishaq Kunle Sanni, condemned "in strong terms the proposed hosting of the Miss World competition in Nigeria by federal government agencies.
"We cannot fathom what benefit would acrue to the nation, in a show in which nakedness of women is exhibited with absolute necklessness and all sorts of immoralities come in its wake."
NACOMYO lamented that Nigeria "has been stigmatised as being the largest exporter of prostitutes to Italy and other parts of Europe."
The organisation condemned why Nigeria should be wasting millions of naira in hosting a beauty pegeant when "policemen and civil servants are being owned arrears of salaries."
"It also shows insensivity on the part of government to the feelings of muslims who constituted the majority in this country for the show of shame to be organised during the period of Ramadan fasting," he said.
"We therefore call on the federal government to cancel this senseless hosting of miss world competition. If our appeal goes on deaf ears we shall use all constitutional means to disrupt this programme," NACOMYO said.
