Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has called for clampdown on the MultiChoice’s TV reality show, Big Brother Naija Season 5.
The call was made by Stanley Dimkpa, Chairman of CAN in Rivers State, through a statement released to the media on Tuesday.
He accused the show of aiding immorality in the society and called for its outright ban.
“As Christians this, this ceremony is aimed at promoting diligence and reinvigorating a positive lifestyle and collectively making our state better.
“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 wrong doing, 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.
