Civil Liberties Organization (CLO) has urged President Buhari and the National Assembly to abolish the Big Brother Naija reality TV show.

According to the organization, the reality TV show has no benefit in the transformation and talent discovery in Nigeria.

A statement issued by the chairman of the Anambra state chapter, Vincent Ezekwueme, also called on religious leaders and moralist to speak against the evils in the society.

CLO stated that their call is quite timely towards the protection of national interest, morality and the future of Nigerian youths.

Ezekwueme said, “The show has painful, shameful, negative and devastating impact on our youths, culture and society. Wealth without wisdom is one of the worst blunders of the world.

“The Minister for Information and Culture should constitute men of impeccable integrity to unravel if the show is in tandem with culture, traditions and believe of Nigeria in order to restore morality, core value system and good orientation.”

The Big Brother Naija reality TV show ended on Sunday, 6th of October with Mercy emerging winner.

She went home with the prize money of N60million, an SUV and tickets to travel abroad.

I've asked myself whole lot of questions concerning this!
Of what gain is BBNaija to our youths? Is it the romantic scene you learn from? The vile and erotic speeches?
Seriously, unemployment is a disease...cos its the root.. Only lazy youths clamour to watch it..
Banning it would be the only good thing i know this government has achieved...

It's called entertainment,are you looking for moral lessons
The same thing can be said about a lot of things the average person consumes.At least this program has added billions to the economy.

In as much as I am not a fan of Big Brother show due to its poor educational value and high immorality content, I am CONFUSED about this call for its abolition coming from Civil Liberties Organization.

If you ponder over the two words 'Civil Liberties', you will appreciate my CONFUSION. Ordinarily organizations like CAN and MURIC should be calling for abolition of BB show while organizations like CLO would be opposing on ground that every Nigerian is at liberty to do any lawful business including reality shows.

Confusion everywhere!

If they move the show back to South Africa, and then show it on one of their cable channels with an adult rating. Will the government be able to ban it.

I am not particularly fond of BBnaija or any other BB for that matter, but I understand we are living in a free secular democracy. There are Christian, Muslim, educative, sports, business, etc programmes. You are free to watch what appeals to you. The programmes are governed by broadcast laws and codes. As long as programmes remain within the extant laws, then government has no business with the programmes.
If a particular program run foul of the broadcast code, then write a petition to the NBC, highlighting such infringements, citing relevant chapters and sections. NBC is the only parastatal with the powers to sanction radio and TV stations registered in Nigeria.

This CLO is really a cloned organization. If you don't like the show, why not quietly face your front and continue to be a directionless, clueless, vissionless and meaningless organization. Is this CLO jealoused of BBN millionaires? of what impact has this useless CLO created in the Nigerian society? You are even talking of morality as a basis to ban the show, what about many churches where morality is no longer a norm? so they should ban church in Nigeria? Okay, what about Nigerian movies where we watch a lot of silly actions, should the industry also be banned? Have they also been watching American movies? where their actions are as raw as every thing.
CLO should concern themselves with serious issues militating against the survival of the common man in the society instead of silly calls over what is successfully turning many Nigerians to millionaire's. I am yet to see any thing wrong With BBN. At least I followed the show this year and couldn't see any thing wrong with it.

The show is rated 18. It means it allows certain degree of sexual expression, violence, Strong language and adult themes. If you say that no sexual content whatsoever should be allowed, then you must also insist that all 18 rated movies and programs must also be banned.

Multichoice, owners of BBNAIJA is a business, it pays relevant taxes to states and local government. It is not a charity organisation. If you want to burden multichoice with charity work, then you must burden all other companies including telecom companies, banks and manufacturing companies with charity obligations also.

It's really disgraceful. What is the value to society. When one DJ is Shearing N500k to people for having sex and twerking with half unclothedness. Giving N30m, 25m cars for all those profane acts. . In fact making them ambassadors. .

Not everything the West brings we must swallow. This is inappropriate to us.

Nonsense show.
