The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has called on the society and other industry stakeholders to discourage the promotion of reality TV show, Big Brother Naija.
According to CAN, the show is evil and promotes immoral activities. CAN have urged the public to rather promote justice and moral programs and activities that are directed to pleasing God and humanity.
CAN Chairman in Rivers state, Stanley Dimkpa who made the call in a legthy statement, stated that the immorality being portrayed in the BBNAIJA show should be vehemently condemned because it breeds evil.
The statement read;
“As Christians this, this ceremony is aimed at promoting diligence and reinvigorating a positive lifestyle and collectively making our state better.
A state where tribe, creed, political party, and church do not matter in the scheme of things but a state where equity, equality, qualification, truth, and hard work are necessary criteria and conditions for justice.
“Promotion and appointment in all fields of life where reward and good morals will encourage everyone to abhor evil and do what is right. Romans 12:9.
“All these are needed to replace what we have in our world today where societal ills, crimes, and immoral behaviours are geometrically increasing due to bad governance, poverty and reward for wrongdoing, such as Big Brother Naija.
“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 evil and we must clamp down on it.”
