The Ohanaeze Youth Council, OYC- the apex youth organization in Igbo land has urged Nigerian government to fast track the banning of Big Brother Nigeria also known as BBNAIJA.
Addressing Igbo youths in Enugu on Tuesday 10th August 2021 in preparation of the Ohanaeze Youth Council leadership programme to be anchored by her National Directorate of Leadership And Social Re-engineering, the national President of Ohanaeze Youth Council Comrade Igboayaka O Igboayaka stated that BBNAIJA is deeply affecting the fragile moral upbringing in family and schools.
Comrade Igboayaka pointed out that BB NAIJA does not have any moral background especially at this period Nigeria youth have lost sense of societal values and norms.
“With the high rate of lack of moral values among teenagers in Nigeria, BBNAIJA is a social monster that has come to ruin the lives of Nigerian youths mostly the teenagers who are easily carried away by social trends.”
The Majority of Nigerian youths are not mentally matured to be participating or watching such a Semi-packaged porn programme that adds or proffers zero solutions to the social problems confronting our youths, Comrade, Igboayaka stated.
Comrade Igboayaka, therefore, urged the Ministry of youth and National Orientation Agency to present a more reasonable Youth program (Show) that will promote value system, norms as well as intellectual formation among the Nigerian youths.
“BBNAIJA does not represent any ethnic cultural status in Nigeria, neither does it appeal to any religious status domicile in Nigeria, but it present and represent a wrong worldview about the reality of life to young and teenage Nigerians”, Igboayaka concluded.
