President of the Arewa Youths Consultative Forum, AYCF, Yerima Shettima has said that the recently concluded BBNaija reality TV show is for people who have nothing important to do with their time.
He made this known while debunking the idea that Nigerians were distracted from fighting against the hike in fuel price due to the show.
“We can’t start comparing the issue of Nigeria to mere Big Brother. We are too big for that. In my house for instance, we don’t have time to watch that programme.
“It does not distract anybody. How many people watch Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) to start with? Just mostly women, so I don’t think the programme has anything to do with that.
“The issue is that we have a country where we hardly wake up to realities until we are down completely, proactive security is not in us, consistency in the fight against certain things is not in our culture and that is why those at the helm of affairs of the country take us for granted.
“Let’s not bring Nigeria down to that level of making comparison with one funny lazy people’s programme where people spend their time watching because they have nothing to do.”Photo Credit: Twitter
