BBNaija Misrepresenting Goodness, Integrity Of The Nigerian Youths - OONI

 


The BBNaija reality show is “misrepresenting the goodness and integrity of the Nigerian youths.”


This position was made known by the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, while playing host to members of the National Youth Council of Nigeria in his palace at Ile Ife, Osun State, Nigeria. 


While suggesting a replacement for the Big Brother Naija reality show, the first class monarch,  suggested a reality show that would project the country’s values, cultures, and traditions.


Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, who specifically suggested that the new show could be tagged “The Big Nigeria Reality Show”, said: “The proposed show will be structured in a way that young professionals, talented individuals, and others across several fields of endeavour will be showcased and helped to reach their peak.


“This would help the participants and also help viewers to have access to people that can be seen as role models,” Ooni added.


A statement from the Ooni’s media aide, Moses Olafare, quoted the monarch as saying, “Nigerian youths are fond of accusing and abusing our leaders, stop abusing them contribute your own quota. Let’s wear our thinking caps and begin to act like the real future leaders that we are.


“In the last general election, the total number of vote cast was around 27 million while over 170 million people voted during the 2019 Big Brother Naija reality show.


“This is a practical reality of who Nigerian youths are and where our priorities lie as Nigerians.


“The funny side in all of these is that we still go to bed, have a good sleep, and wake up with the hope to meet a Nigeria we didn’t create.


“Unfortunately, every time I talk about this kind of attitude, everyone just laughs and moves on. What kind of nation are we building?


“When people say this country, or what kind of country is this, they are indirectly saying these people – it is the people that make a country; so what kind of Nigerian youths are we?”
