The AIDS Healthcare Foundation, AHF, on Sunday distributed 500,000 units of condom across different locations of Abuja to commemorate the Valentine’s Day.

Our reporter gathered that it was an all “red and white” affair at Edens Garden and Parks, Jabi, as lovers turned up en masse to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

AHF, however, seized the opportunity to kick off the condom giveaway campaign, accompanied by free instant HIV tests, free HIV drugs and AIDS awareness-raising activities.

Speaking to PREMIUM TIMES, the site coordinator for AHF, Kema Onu, said half a million condoms were shared across different locations of the capital city alone.

“Thousands of people are turning up to get tested,” Dr. Onu said. “It’s amazing how Nigerians are now coming out to get tested. Unlike before, the tension was palpable but now there is awareness that HIV is no longer a death threat.

“We are sharing 500,000 units of condoms here in Abuja alone, and this is concurrently happening in six states in Nigeria and 36 countries worldwide.

“Those we tested HIV positive are subsequently referred to care and equally receive free HIV vaccines.”

    What a shame! I have always said it that 14-Feb has always been a day that many promiscuous and irresponsible saiyrs indulge in senseless, shameless and brazenly open fornication. This NGO ought to extend this condom to dogs because there are many sub-human beings who practise bestiality. What a disgrace! Condom on one hand and HIV kit on the other hand. Why wouldn’t many become HIV distributors with this form of sub-animal behaviour from those who suppose to be human beings. A Western propensity has now become a lifestyle in this country and yet many do not see the evil in it. May God help us in this country.

    “When the Lord God saw the extent of human wickedness, and that the trend and direction of men’s lives were only towards evil,he was sorry he had made them. It broke his heart.” – Genesis 6: 5-6 (TLB). There is no doubt the world is tending towards the life style of Sodom and Gomorrah. Acts of immorality, promiscuity and other sexually related sins are getting more public acceptance and approval every day. The NGO may think they are doing good service to the world by distributing fee condoms and offering free HIV tests, but they will definitely be called to account on the last day. In verse 7 of the chapter of the Bible quoted above, the Lord God said, ” I will blot out from the face of the earth all mankind that I created. Yes, and the animals too, and the reptiles and the birds. For I am sorry I made them.” Let the world continue in their enjoyment of Valentine with unrestricted pleasure of sexual indulgence until one day; yes, just one day. That is how it was in Noah’s time.
