The president Buhari-led administration has been urged by the the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF) to ban the airing of Big Brother Naija reality television show, popularly known as BBNaija.
AYCF National President, Yerima Shettima, stated that BBNaija encourages immorality and sexual indulgence hence should be banned in Nigeria.
Shettima on Friday, described the reality television show as a catastrophe that Nigeria should reject.
“It’s a calamity as far as I am concerned; I have never believed in BBNaija and do not believe it is right because the show is an act of immorality. Such a show should not be encouraged.
“I have often said this show promotes immorality and the Nigerian government should please ban it, it should not be allowed to be aired in our country.
“You see, a lot of people watch to see immorality acts, those sex things displaying their nakedness, and they have made it look like a blue film (X-rated film), so, this must be discouraged.
“I urge true lovers of the country to join hands and call the attention of the government on the implication of this programme which must be discouraged,” he said.
