Elders attacking BBNaija show also watch it - Shehu Sani

Former senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani has advised the elders attacking BBNaija reality TV show to stop watching it.

The popular show which rewards winners with millions has been under attack of late with claims that it promotes immorality among youths.

Last week, a call for the show to be stopped was made by Stanley Dimkpa, the Chairman of the Rivers State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN.

Dimkpa labelled the show as one which rewards wrong-doings.

“I want to emphasize Big Brother Naija because all of us have to fight collectively to stop this immoral act and injustice in our land, as Christians and Africans, we have respect for mankind.

“For those of us that have allowed our friends and families to encourage the patronage of Big Brother Naija, know that it is an evil and we must clamp down on it,” he said.

Last year, the Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC, asked the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), to stop the show when the 2019 edition was airing.

In a statement issued by its Director, Professor Ishaq Akintola, MURIC described the show as satanic.

“We are being forcibly dragged to a world of nudity, shamelessness and open promiscuity. Inmates of BBNaija kiss, romance and engage in sex openly. BBNaija is bohemian, anti-social, crude and immoral. It constitutes a potent danger to every home. BBNaija is satanic. It is unacceptable", he said.

The views shared by the religious elders and others who have spoken against the show has been criticized by Shehu Sani.

According to him, the reason why the elders criticize the show is that they watch it.

"Some elders approach to BBNaija is to watch & attack, watch & condemn instead of not to watch at all", he tweeted.
