BBNaija Is Misrepresenting Nigerian Youth And Should Be Scrapped – Ooni Of Ife



The Ooni of Ife Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, has become the latest high profiled personality to call for the scrapping of the Big Brother Naija reality TV show.

According to the traditional ruler, BBNaija is misrepresenting “the goodness and integrity of the Nigerian youths”. He requested that the program should be scrapped and in its stead should be a new program that is more beneficial to the young Nigerian populace.

He made this remarks when some youths paid a courtesy call on him as part of the celebration of the International Youth Day. He noted that Nigerian youths are misplacing their priorities as the untapped immeasurable wealth and resources of the country and urged them to take leadership roles.

He enjoined the youth to stop abusing the leaders and start contributing their quota to the development of the nation. “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”, he said.

He wondered why the last year’s general elections had about 27 million votes whiles the Big Brother Naija had over 170 million votes same year. “In the last general election, the total number of votes 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”, he noted.

He continued: “Nigerian Youths! Nigerian Youths!! Nigerians Youths!!! Unfortunately, every time I talk about this kind of attitude, everyone just laugh and move 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?” Ooni asked.
