The Labour Party (LP) has cautioned Nigerian teenagers not to watch the newest season of Big Brother Naija, dubbed “The Titans,” since it will be a distraction.
This was said by Dr. Yunusa Tanko, the Chief Spokesperson for the LP Presidential Campaign Committee (LP-PCC), on Wednesday in Enugu.
He claims that its purpose is to keep people from voting during the election dates.

Tanko claimed that one of the main opposition parties was funding the reality program in order to dissuade young people from casting their votes for the candidate of their choice.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the television program will debut on broadcast on January 15—just 40 days before the general elections.
Tanko said, “The essence of this press conference is to alert the ever vibrant Nigerian youths of the hidden agenda behind the new reality show tagged: “The Titans”.
“We have credible information that it’s being sponsored by one of the major opposition parties to distract the Nigerian youths from changing the leadership that has placed them in perilous times laced with abject poverty,” he said.
He emphasized that the material provided to them showed that the son of one of the presidential contenders traveled to South Africa actively working with other people to develop this plot.

“As a party with the sole aim of turning our dear country into a place where poverty, unemployment, ‘japa’ will be seen as a taboo is being threatened by an opposition that hates the Nigerian youths with passion.
“Big Titan or whatever they may call it will distract the youths from taking what belongs to them now.
“The Big Brother Naija ended not long ago, why the ‘Titans’ now that we are facing a major election that will determine the future of the Nigerian youths,” he queried.
Tanko claimed that because young people’s attention would be divided, reality television was now fraught with numerous unanticipated risks for their safety.
“As a party we are not against reality shows because it helps the Nigerian youths to break the poverty line but for now, for the common good of all it should be shifted to another convenient date.
“This should be after the general elections must have been concluded.

“Those putting together a reality show at this time when we are counting days to the general elections are enemies of the Nigerian youths and by extension all well-meaning Nigerians,” Tanko said.
He argued that Nigerians ought to inquire of the organizers whether they were actually allies of the country’s government or opponents of development.
The LP-PCC representative added that a significant opposition political party created the reality program and emphasized that they would reveal their identities to the Nigerian young at the appropriate moment.
