The Rivers State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), has described the ongoing popular reality television show, Big Brother Naija, as evil, enjoining political leaders in the country to discourage immoral activities and seek to stop the show.
The Chairman of CAN in Rivers State, Stanley Dimkpa, made the call to scrap the show while congratulating three local government Chairmen in the state for effectively managing the COVID-19 pandemic in their jurisdictions.
Dimka said: “As Christians, 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 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.”
