Controversy continued to trail over shut down of BBNaija

Controversy has continued to trail the reported order by the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed , to the National Broadcasting Commission to shut down the
Big Brother Naija reality television show .

The Acting Director- General of the NBC, Armstrong Idachaba, had allegedly told senior management members of the commission at a meeting during the week that he had been directed by the minister to shut down the show due to the coronavirus pandemic .

MultiChoice Limited had subsequently replied the NBC stating the measures taken to forestall any violation of the COVID – 19 protocols advised by the Presidential Task Force on COVID – 19, adding that the Lagos State Safety Commission gave approval for the show.
Meanwhile , Nigerians on
Twitter have expressed diverse views on the matter.

@ VirginSearcher tweeted , “I’ m not his fan /APC fan but this one, I support it because it ’ s a very useless show .

How can one sit at home every day watching people seated in a house doing rubbish and waiting to cash out if successful .

What is my gain ? It is a very hopeless show. Pure waste of time . ”

@ NwokwuIzunna said , “ Nigerian youths .

None of them is agitating for school reopening.

They are here crying foul over the cancellation of that rubbish show that adds nothing to us .

There’ s no talent hunt there . ”

@ diiphillipo wrote, “ A group of people that are suffering the problems brought upon them by the people who wants to ban BBN .


Scores are dying in Southern Kaduna and SARS is making mincemeat of Southern youths .

The man with whom the buck stops rather went to Mali . ”
