An Islamic Cleric and scholar, Professor Ishaq Akintola, has said that the popular Television Reality Show, Big Brother Naija, is abomination and idolizes idleness and immorality. He encouraged the Federal Government through the National Broadcasting Commission, NBC, to ban the programme, for the good of the country.
He said this on Saturday, while speaking to journalists. The Professor who is also the Director, Muslim Rights Concern, described the programme as an abomination and invitation to chaos and insecurity, because it allegedly seeks to mislead Nigerian youths.
According to him, " BBNaija is an abomination. The problem we have in this country is that people don't learn lessons from past mistakes. We tend to idolize idleness and immorality. We pick thugs as heroes and ritualists as our models".
He added, "Our Youths today have missed the road; what they are interested in is not what can make the country great. What do we get to gain from open vulgarity, open nudity, the spread of shamelessness? "
"We are encouraging it badly that we allow it to be displayed openly on Television. The parents are not at home, the children are watching BBNaija, it is an invitation to chaos"
The popular preacher encouraged the Muslim and Christian preachers to come together to condemn the popular Television Reality Show, for the good of the country.
