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 .
