Yoruba Group Support Move By National Assembly To Ban Bleaching Cream
Following the National Assembly’s move to ban the importation and production of bleaching cream in Nigeria, a Yoruba socio-cultural group, Yoruba Youth Socio-Cultural Association, YYSA, has given their support.
In the statement signed by the National President of the association, Hammed Olalekan, the group is very pleased with the Upper chamber’s move to regulate the importation and production of creams that are used to tone people’s skin.
“As part of its advocacies to instill right values, right attitudes, and behaviors that are acceptable among youths across Nigeria, the YYSA is in full support of this move.
“Bleaching is an act of immorality that has become a commonality in Nigeria.
“This is because it is generally used by all classes of people in the society, including elites.
“It’s undoubtedly an epidemic in Nigeria and, if not curtailed, will later lead to an outbreak of cancer, not only among adults but children.
“This is for the fact that nursing mothers too are now using it on their infants,’’ Olalekan said.
The group further suggests that severe punishment should be set and meted to anyone who flouts the law.
