Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has called on the National Assembly to support the National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC) in tackling what it described as “nudity” on the famous BBNaija reality show.
NCAC has been vocal about its condemnation of BBNaija show, calling for regulatory measures on different occasions.
MURIC, in a statement, asked lawmakers to empower NCAC towards ending what it termed “nudity” on the show.
The Islamic rights society said it was in support of the calls made by Segun Runsewe, the NCAC director-general.
“MURIC supports Runsewe’s call and we see no reason why the NASS will hesitate to give him all necessary backing. BBNaija’s reality TV show is the devil incarnate misleading Nigerian youth,” the group said.
“BBNaija is forcibly dragging our youths to a world of nudity, debauchery, and shamelessness. BBNaija constitutes a potent threat to every home. It is open rape of our cultures, values, and norms. BBNaija is luciferous.
“The NASS will have its name indelibly carved in letters of gold if it hearkens to the plea made by Runsewe.
“His appeal has revealed the weakness in our legal system. It has revealed that there are no extant laws powerful enough to stop romance and sex on our television channels. The time to give the law the teeth to bite is now.”
