The Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF) has said Nigeria’s biggest reality show, Big Brother Naija, BBNaija, promotes immorality and sexual content, hence should be prohibited.
The Northern group called on the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government to halt the airing of the reality show, insisting that it has now become pornography.
Naija News reports that AYCF National President, Yerima Shettima, made the assertions while speaking with newsmen on Friday, August 6.
Shettima appealed to Nigerians to join hands in drawing the attention of the Federal Government to the implications of the television show, and demand its ban in the country’s broadcast spectrum.
He said: “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;’ 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.”
Over the seasons, BBNaija housemates have been caught on camera having sex or indulging in various forms of immorality.
In the current season, Angel was caught on camera ‘fingering’ herself.
