The Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF) has called on the Federal Government to ban the airing of popular reality TV show, Big Brother Naija.
AYCF National President, Yerima Shettim, in an interview with Daily post on Friday, July 6, stated that the show encourages immorality and nudity, hence should be banned in Nigeria.
According to him, the show is synonymous with blue film (X-rated movies) because most viewers watch it because of its explicit contents.
Speaking further, Shettima appealed to the Government to ban the reality TV show and stop it from airing within the country.
“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 (X-rated 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,” he said.
