The Ohanaeze Youth Council has joined the call for a ban of ongoing reality show, Big Brother Naija.
National President of the OYC, Igboayaka O. Igboayaka described the reality show as semi-packaged porn and social monster.
On Friday, the 6th of August, leadership of the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum called on President Muhammadu Buhari to stop the reality show in Nigeria.
President of the group, Yerima Shettima, argued that the show has become pornography.
AYCF 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
Less than a week after the appeal, the Igbo youth group insists BBNaija does not add any value to the development of Nigerian youth.
“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.”
Ohanaeze youth leader called on the federal government to create a more reasonable and youth friendly program to 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.
