It’s Valentine’s Day, avoid casual sex!

Valentines Day

The National Agency for the Control of AIDS has encouraged Nigerians to avoid engaging in risky behavior, especially during this Valentine’s Day celebrations.

Speaking through its Director-General, Dr. Sani Aliyu, the agency says this season of affection is to share and show love responsibly; and by so doing, we can halt and reverse the spread of HIV in Nigeria.

Aliyu warns that beyond the sweet words and exchange of gifts, it is important that young people in particular are equipped with all the information they need to ensure that this Valentine’s Day is celebrated by showing love to those we care about in a safe and responsible manner.

In a press release signed by NACA’s Head of Corporate Communications Unit, Mrs. Toyin Aderibigbe, Aliyu says, “As we celebrate love, we should remember that safe sex is not just about protecting ourselves, but also protecting those we love.

“This is a special day for love. In the process of loving, love carefully, play safe and be faithful to your partner.

“If you are young and not sexually active yet, abstaining from sex will keep you safe from sexually transmitted diseases including HIV, otherwise protect yourself by using a condom at all times.

“Above all, you should know your HIV status. If you do happen to carry the virus, we can give you treatment that will keep you healthy and stop you from spreading the virus to your loved one.

“So, get tested for HIV today and stay safe this Valentine’s Day.’’
