Nigerians Petition NBC To Terminate On Going Tv Show # BigBrotherNaija For Too-Many porn Scene

A Non – governmental Organization has joined the call of

 well- meaning Nigerians to shutdown the ongoing Big Brother Naija reality show for promoting pornography .


CitizenGO, an NGO , is currently gathering votes online to stop the airing of Big Brother Naija (# BBNaija ).

The group sent the petition to policy makers, the National Broadcasting Commission , The Presidency and the public .

CitizenGo is a community of active citizens who work together , using online petitions and action alerts as a resource , to defend and promote life, family and liberty . They work to ensure that those in power respect human dignity and individuals ’ rights .

The collection of signatures which started on Feb. 20 , already has.a total number of 3 , 160 signatures. The organisation is hoping to get at least 5 , 000 signatures.

These are some of their grievances :

( 1 ) 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 .

( 2 ) 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 .

( 3 ) 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 .

( 4 ) 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.
