Everybody has to put hands together and fight to scrap Big Brother Naija, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Rivers State has appealed.

The Christian body argues that the reality TV show is “evil”, “immoral”, rewards people for “wrongdoing” and therefore “we must clampdown on it”.

The State Chairman of CAN Mr Stanley Dimkpa made the call on Tuesday, describing the show as an “injustice in our land”.


He was speaking while praising three local government Chairmen who effectively managed the COVID-19 pandemic in the state.

Mr Dimkpa said:

“We should encourage 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.

“A state where promotion and appointments in all fields of life are based on good morals will encourage everyone to abhor evil and do what is right.

“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 an evil and we must clampdown on it,” he said.

Success! You're on the list.
