In a petition, CitizenGO described Big Brother Naija as a show that celebrates obscenity, eroticism and idleness.
In a petition, the Non governmental organization appealed to the National Broadcasting Commission to ban the reality TV show.
According to them, Big Brother Naija is a celebration of obscenity, eroticism and idleness.
Read the content of their petition below;
“Big Brother Nigeria is a corruption of TV Reality shows. The Nigerian public is complaining about the moral perversity in the House of the Big Brother Nigeria. In one episode last two weeks or so, the inmates were shown openly kissing and caressing one another. This is a celebration of obscenity, eroticism and idleness.
More importantly, it is a big mockery of Nigerian culture and tradition. Since the inmates are Nigerians, they should have been projecting the Nigerian cultural heritage. But instead of doing that, they are bastardizing it.
The biggest tragedy of the on-going Big Brother Nigeria is that our children are also glued to the TV screen watching it. Children are our future. Therefore we should protect them from lewd exposure, which might prevent their growth into free, independent and well-developed citizens.
The NBC must live up to its bidding as a body charged with controlling, monitoring, regulating the electronic media and monitoring of satellite transmission in Nigeria. Our TV stations cannot become dumping grounds for all sorts of immoral programs.”
CitizenGO kicked off their petition on February 20, 2017, and have gotten 3, 160 signatures from Nigerians in support of their movement.
Their aim is to get at least 5, 000 signatures.
