Wife of the Lagos State governor, Dame Abimbola Fashola, has advised the National Assembly against legalising prostitution.

She is reacting to theongoing debate at the Senate on a bill sponsored by Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu, seeking to legalise prostitution.

She condemned the clamour for the legalisation of prostitution, arguing that it would denigrate women.

Mrs. Fashola said: “If any citizen wishes to ruin her life, the National Assembly should not encourage it by legalising the illicit trade.

“Those who engage in prostitution are women who do not want to use their God- given talent. We will pray against it. We'll do our best to ensure that our country does not degenerate into legalising prostitution.

“I won't want my child or any child to go into it. We in COWLSO will lend our voice towards discouraging the passage of the bill. If we love ourselves, we should not legalise prostitution.”
