Ban Big Brother Naija Show

Ohaneze group

A group under the auspices of Ohanaeze Youth Council, OYC, has called on the Federal Government to ban reality show Big Brother Naija, describing it as semi-packaged porn and social monster.

The National President of the OYC, Comrade Igboayaka O Igboayaka, while speaking on Tuesday in Owerri, the Imo State capital, said BBNaija is deeply affecting the fragile moral upbringing in families and schools.

Comrade Igboayaka pointed out that BBNaija does not have any moral background especially at this period Nigerian youths have lost sense of societal values and norms.

He said, “With the high rate of lack of moral values among teenagers in Nigeria, BBNaija is a social monster that has come to ruin the lives of Nigerian youths, mostly the teenagers who are easily carried away by social trends.

“Majority of Nigerian youths are not mentally mature to be participating or watching such semi-packaged porn programmes that adds or proffers zero solution to the social problems confronting our youths.”

Comrade Igboayaka therefore urged the Ministry of Youth and Sport Development, as well as the National Orientation Agency to present a more reasonable youth program that will promote value system, norms as well as intellectual formation.

“BBNaija does not represent any ethnic cultural status in Nigeria, nor does it appeal to any religious status domicile in Nigeria, but it presents and represents a wrong worldview about the reality of life to young and teenage Nigerians”, Igboayaka added.

He also said the government ought not to allow the show to be aired because it promotes immorality and sexual content.

Accurate Gist had to go all out to ask people of their opinion on this and a lady whose name is Amanda Chukwura said the Ohaneze group are right to some considerable extent; but at this point in Nigeria some people need a show like this to ease themselves of the pains and frustration of even the most demanding day. She also added that “even if I was asked to bet my life in 2014 that 1dollar will equal to N520 naira naso I for bet am, die o.. Buhari no try”

Another individual also stated that most people are just using the tool of virtue-signalling to drive their hidden jealousy or just seeking relevance. “Why all these noise about the show? Worse happen in some of our nollywood movies. You either watch or look the other way.

The show is not on a local channel. Why the noise? Is it because of it’s popularity?

I’m not a fan of BBN. Just looking at the business angle. Someone’s making money, businesses are getting the audience and exposure they need. And your own is just to bring it down.

Coming from people who actually watch porn in their closet”
