BBNaija: Arewa youths raise fresh alarm, insist reality show is ‘calamity’
The Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, AYCF, has launched a fresh attack on the Big Brother Naija, BBNaija, reality television show.
AYCF National President, Yerima Shettima, said the BBNaija show makes youths lazy and weak.
Speaking exclusively with DAILY POST, Shettima said the show is a calamity to the present generation.
Shettima urged the Federal Government to create a reality show that would groom youths to take over the mantle of leadership.
According to Shettima: “It makes our youths to be lazy; even those who participated appear to be lazy. What they are doing to the psychic of this our present generation is a calamity.
“The show makes them weak, lazy and at the same time very unproductive. I have not seen anything they are doing better.
“I don’t see anything they are doing to encourage our present generation or bring about a good thing to the psychic of the younger generation.
“If there should be any reality show now, it should be that which would groom leaders and not to be encouraging these immoral acts.
“Even in the western world, such things cannot be allowed to scale through. So, rather than doing this, let us see how to put up a programme that would unite the country, groom people, mentorship, and so on; which is better; instead of this madness and immorality which should be discouraged. It must be totally discouraged.”
Recall that the AYCF National President had earlier called for the ban of BBNaija programme in Nigeria.
