The Muslim Students’ Society of Nigeria (MSSN), Lagos State Area Unit has called for the total ban of TV reality show, Big Brother Nigeria.
The Amir (president) Mallam Miftahudeen Thanni, of the group made this call on Thursday, August 12, 2021, to commemorate the 1443AH Islamic new year and International Youths Day.
Thanni stated that banning the show would “be the best gift to mark international youth day.”
The Muslim youths leader asked the Federal Government to ban the Big Brother Nigeria (BBNaija) reality show over the danger it constitutes to youths.
Hus statement reads
“This immorality extends beyond just nude dressing to encouraging youths to sell their bodies to get fame and make money. We express our total rejection of the programme and call on the government to ban it.
“This indirect porn programme is also giving teenagers a bad orientation that making it in life must come with a price of exposing their bodies, thereby causing high cases of rape in the society.”
Thanni, therefore, called on the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission and the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board to live up to their expectations by scrapping the programme on moral grounds.
“Relevant broadcast authorities should pay attention to the damaging nature of this programme. It is ruining the lives of youths. If Nigeria is serious about fighting crimes, we cannot afford to leave this kind of programme unscrapped,”
Also calling for the ban of BBNaija is Arewa Youths. According to RoizMedia, the National President of the group, Yerima Shettima, made the call while addressing newsmen.
He described the program as a calamity and a show that promotes Immorality. He added youths should not be exposed to such show.
