“We will make you a scapegoat” – FG tells Tekno
The Nigerian Federal Government has vowed to restore sanity into the social lives of its citizens and curb the debasement of humanity and pride of Nigerian women by making scapegoats of some peculiar persons.
This motion by the government is in reaction to the controversial music video by popular musician, Tekno which featured scenes of four semi-nude women dancing in a moving van on the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge in Lagos.
The government expressed disappointment that despite ongoing investigations into the anomaly, Tekno went ahead to release the offensive video.
A statement on Sunday by the Director General, National Council for Arts and Culture, a parastatal of the Federal Ministry of Information and Culture, Segun Runsewe, said Tekno would be made a scapegoat “to teach others a serious lesson.”
According to him, the NCAC is committed to exposing proponents of such kind of offensive sights and videos in Nigeria, while security agencies will be briefed to place Tekno on their watch list, “because his conduct is a threat to national security.”
“We commend the police for arresting Tekno for the shameful misconduct. The same person, who was granted bail on health grounds has gone ahead to release the controversial video. We are now warning him to desist from this shameful conduct, which is not part of our culture.
“No single person is bigger than Nigeria; whether he likes it or not, we are going to use him as a scapegoat to send strong signals that this government does not tolerate nonsense and immorality, but discipline, which is our moral principle.
