The Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, AYCF, on Friday called on the Federal Government to ban the airing of Big Brother Naija, BBNaija, reality television show.
AYCF National President, Yerima Shettima, said BBNaija promotes immorality and sexual content; hence should be banned in Nigeria.
Shettima described the reality television show as a calamity that Nigeria should not encourage.
According to Shettima: “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 unclothedness, 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 years, BBNaija housemates have been caught on camera having sex or involved in other forms of sexual activities.
In the current season, Angel was caught on camera fingering herself.
