Two Catholic Archbishops, Anthony Cardinal Okogie of the Lagos State, and his Ibadan counterpart, Alaba Job, have joined Nigerians calling for the ban of TV reality show, Big Brother Naija, describing it as an immoral show.
According to Nigeria’s Daily Post reports, The Archbishops made the call when they spoke at a ceremony organized by the Catholic Artistes and Entertainers Association of Nigeria, CAEAN, in collaboration with Social Communications as well as the Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria, CSN.
They called on the CAEAN to stay away from such immoral presentations in the name of entertainment.
The clerics said it’s morally unjustifiable and called on relevant authorities to save impressionable Nigerian young ones from obscenities.
They also called on the regulating agency to immediately yank off the programme without any further delay.
According to Archbishop Job, “Apart from the mouth-watering profit the sponsoring companies stand to gain, the TV reality show has no single positive impact on the Nigerian citizens, neither does it have on its dwindling economy.”
He added that the reality show only celebrates obscenity, eroticism and idleness.
