Abuja, 08 September, 2021 / 9:06 pm (ACI Africa).
The leadership of an international Catholic activist organization that spearheads family issues is petitioning the government of Nigeria for the withdrawal of a reality TV show, which it says showcases “pure pornography.”
In a Tuesday, September 7 petition addressed to the country’s Federal Minister for Information and Culture, officials of CitizenGo say Big Brother Naija, which is part of the international reality TV franchise Big Brother, is a mockery to Nigerian cultures and traditions.
"The Federal Minister for Information and Culture must stop this show from airing since the Nigerian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) seems complacent," CitizenGo officials say.
Big Brother Naija, they add, is a "celebration of obscenity, eroticism and idleness."
"In one episode last two weeks or so, the inmates were shown openly kissing and caressing one another," they explain.
