An association named Arewa Youth Advisory Forum (AYCF) has called on the Federal Government to ban Nigeria’s reality tv show.

AYCF National head, Yerima Shettima, characterized the show as a ‘‘calamity’’ in an interview with some reporters on Friday.

He also noted that the government ought not to allow the show to be aired because it heightens immorality and sexual content.

“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,” he said.

On Record, it was not the first time that a faction or an individual would speak against BBNaija.

A Vicar of Anglican Church of the Epiphany, Ifeanyi Akunna in Abuja also called on the Federal Government to restrict Big Brother Nigeria (BBNaija) reality tv shows and other comparable programs in the nation.

He said such programs stimulate vice and erode the moral foundations upon which Nigerian youths should be on.

Mr. Ifeanyi furthermore tasked the government with restoring moral values and the importance of good education in country.

Expanding, the cleric point that the obsession of Nigerians with reality tv shows like ‘Big BBNaija does not add to their moral integrity.

He emphasized that the scheme and work of Satan were to often pollute the hearts and minds of watchers of the program with nudity and porn concepts to distract them from the ways of God.

Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), Project for Human Development, Foundation for African Cultural Heritage, and the Association of Concerned Mothers also lauded the ban of the reality tv show.

The four have taken MutiChoice Nigeria Limited, the National Broadcasting Commission [NBC], and the Federal Government before a Federal High Court in Lagos.

In suit FHC/L/CS/1792/19 are seeking the fundamental rights enforcement of procedure rules, 2009 made by the Chief Justice of Nigeria [CJN] under Section 46(3) of the 1999 Constitution.

In July, The Corporate Accountability and Public Participation Africa (CAPPA) and the Nigeria Tobacco Control Alliance (NTCA) petitioned the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) urging the prohibition of smoking in the Big Brother Naija Season 6.

CAPPA and NTCA in the letter themed: Big Brother Naija Season 6: NBC Should Enforce Ban of Smoking in the Entertainment Sector, and addressed to Director General of the NBC, Babalola Shehu Ilelah, commended the agency for prohibiting nudity on the show. null

However, they urged NBC to broaden its radar to smoking which they say is glamourized on the tv show.

The groups asserted that housemates who smoke in the BBNaija house leave an enormous impression on the youth at a time the Nigerian government is working assiduously to lessen smoking initiation

A sixth season of the show tagged: ‘Shine Ya Eyes’, is airing on.
