Lai Mohammed Denies Ordering NBC To Suspend BBNaija by CallMeDrino: 5:21am On Jul 26
The Minister of Information and Culture in Nigeria, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has denied ordering the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) to suspend the transmission of popular reality TV show, Big Brother Naija.

The minister countered the report which was first published on July 24, 2020 by top Nigerian online newspaper, TheCable, in a statement made available to Featured24 on Saturday.

The report by the newspaper claimed that the minister gave the order to Acting Director-General of the NBC, Armstrong Idachaba, over fears of a possible spread of COVID-19 among the housemates.

However, Mr Mohammed, in a statement by his media aide, Segun Adeyemi, slammed the report by describing it as a “lie”.

“The report was not credited to the minister. That statement is not credited to the minister. We will not dignify speculative reports; if a minister issues a directive, it will not be issued verbally.

“There’s going to be a memo to that effect that he will send; anybody that is sure that the minister made that statement should provide a memo.

“Like I said earlier, we will not dignify speculative report; if you tune your satellite TV to channel 198, I am sure Big Brother Naija is still airing, contrary to the speculative report that the minister has ordered NBC to suspend the show,” the statement read.

This news platform recalls that before the start of the current season which started on July 19, potentials Housemates were in quarantine before the premiere to curtail the possible spread of the virus.

The reality show entered its fifth season on Sunday, July 19 with 20 housemates competing for a N85million grand prize.

The grand prize, which includes N30m cash prize, two-bedroom apartment, an SUV, a trip to Dublin, home appliances, a trip to Dubai, a year’s supply of noodles and a trip to watch the UEFA Champions League final, among others, makes this season’s winning the biggest since the show was launched in 2006.

For me i don't see the reason for govt to cancel the show because it has already started and some people and some company's has invested money on it. I'm not a fan of BBnaija but some people are and is not by force to watch it there are other channels and program to watch on dstv.my concern is that govt should tax them and make something from the show and invest it bck to the society.

But many important and reasonable events all over the world were cancelled due to coronavirus.
What is so special about this rubbish and immoral show that they cannot suspend it for a year?

Lazy youths,
continue to support your candidates as you contribute to their #85 Million Naira largesse...and still come online and be crying of hunger in your house!

Misplaced priority by Lazy Nigerian Youths.

SMH!!

Great!!

I love your logic here. I’ve never watched any series of Big brother except for the very first one that had the likes of Bayo and Gaitano.

It’s not my cup of tea but I have absolutely nothing against the show or those that enjoy the show.

As for those complaining about kids potentially viewing it..... it is not the responsibility of corporations to raise your child!!



To my fellow Nigerians, we need to learn how to live and let live. By default, a vast majority of Nigerians are intolerant towards any view, believe and behaviors they do not agree with!! That is why we all hate ourselves and even within a homogenous tribe, we still find a way to hate ourselves!!

He’s Christian, she’s Muslim, he’s Yoruba, she’s Igbo, he’s Hausa, she’s Fulani.... we just find so many reasons to divide and hate ourselves even though we are all black!

Isokay. Make federal govt leave the show for this season since they’ve started already and a lot of companies invested on it so it will be a massive lost Govt can stop � the next season before they start meanwhile I’m not a fan of the show sha.
