The planned event tagged ‘Kiss-a-thon ‘ was capable of denigrating the image of the state” — Ekiti Govt.

A wacky and bizarre event tagged, “Kiss-a-thon”, the longest world kissing marathon, is scheduled to birth in Ado Ekiti, the Ekiti state capital, in the next few hours.

A group identified as Sugartee in a social media advert has announced July 7 for the commencement of the kissing marathon at a popular amusement park.

Meanwhile, the Ekiti State Government has announced plans to ban the three-day kissing marathon already trending in the state.

The government announced the ban through a letter from the Ministry of Arts and Culture addressed to the Ekiti State Hoteliers Association.

The government via the letter noted that any facility that hosted the event would be severely sanctioned.

The letter signed by the Director of Tourism Adebanji Adelusi on behalf of the Permanent Secretary, Mr Dele Ogunsemoyin noted that the planned event tagged ‘Kiss-a-thon ‘ was capable of denigrating the image of the state.

The letter stated that “Kiss-a-thon” as an event is not only absurd, unhealthy, immoral but capable of denigrating the image of the state.
