The Arewa Youth Advisory Forum (AYCF) has called on the President Muhammadu Buhari ledFederl Government to ban Nigeria’s reality show, BBNaija.
AYCF National President, Yerima Shettima, who spoke on behalf of the group on Friday, described the reality television show as a calamity.
He said government ought not to allow it to be aired because it promotes immorality and sexual content.
According to Shettima, “It’s a calamity for me; I never believed in BBNaija and I don’t think it’s fair because the show is an act of immorality. Such a spectacle should not be encouraged.
“I have often said that this show encourages immorality and that the Nigerian government should ban it, it should not be allowed to be broadcast in our country.
“You see, a lot of people are watching to see acts of immorality, these sexual things flaunting their nudity, and they made it look like a ‘blue film’, so that is to be discouraged.
“I urge true lovers of the country to join hands and draw the government’s attention to the implication of this program which should be discouraged.”
BBNaija is reality show in which contestants live in an isolated house and compete for a large cash prize at the end of the show, by avoiding being evicted by viewers.
The sixth edition of the show tagged: ‘Shine Ya Eyes’, is ongoing.
