MURIC Attacks BBNaija Reality TV Show
The call was made in a press statement on Friday which was signed by the organization’s founder, Prof. Ishaq Akintola and made available to Naija News.
The statement reads in part:
“We are being forcibly dragged to a world of nudity, shamelessness and open promiscuity. Inmates of BBNaija kiss, romance and engage in sex openly. BBNaija is Bohemian, anti-social, crude and immoral. It constitutes a potent danger to every home. BBNaija is Satanic. It is unacceptable.
“Where are our norms and values? Is it part of African culture to engage in sex in the open? Where are the authorities? Is the Ministry of Information and Culture sleeping? Is the National Orientation Agency on sabbatical? Who will protect our children from this despicable onslaught? Who did this to Nigeria?
“…To cap the edifice, MURIC calls for immediate and total ban on this satanic television show. We charge the Ministry of Information and Culture to move swiftly against BB Naija before moral debauchery becomes Nigeria’s middle name. Nigerian youth must be protected from themselves and the time to do so is now. We invite the National Assembly to intervene immediately and we appeal to traditional rulers to add their voices to this campaign.”
The MURIC statement has attracted several reactions from Nigerians on Twitter. See some of the reactions.
MURIC should see this and respect themselves in Nigeria.
Their nuisance is becoming too much. https://t.co/KZ1wt5CNZG

Dear MURIC,#BBNaija doesn’t force it way to your TV screen.
Your @DStvNg decoder has a feature called ‘Parental Control’. With the feature, you can password the Chanel from your kids or yourself 😂
Everyone has freedom to watch whatever they want. Be it porn or #BBNaija

Lol so someone has a problem with big brother naija. I’m just here wondering when it became compulsory to watch it. If you no like don’t watch. It’s that simple now. We’ve a lot of religious fanatics and that’s a big issue. We’ve major problems and yet you pick on this #BBNaijia

MURIC will leave important things like #SayNoToRUGA, Fulani Heardsmen killings only to talk against things that actually makes Nigerians happy. They’re calling for the ban of #BBNaija? Small time, they’ll say Bet9ja should be banned also. Awon alainikanse alainironu pic.twitter.com/L26T81Qe35
