The Federation of Muslim Women Association in Nigeria (FOMWAN) has asked the Federal Government to ban the Big Brother Naija reality TV show for promoting degenerative behaviours and escalating sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV).

Muslim Women Wants BBNaija Banned For Promoting Sexual, Gender Based Violence

National Amirah, Hajia Halima Jibril made the call when she spoke at the opening ceremony of FOMWAN’s 36th annual national conference in Abuja on Friday.

She called for the ban of the BBNaija, saying that the TV show which has gulped trillions of naira, offers no productive venture for the teeming unemployed youths.

Mrs. Jibril said the preponderance of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) targeted at women and girls was a matter of great concern because it has become a daily threat to womanhood and all the values of chastity and high moral rectitude.

FOMWAN said the government and Nigerians are unconsciously supporting SGBV by allowing BBNaija which does not benefit majority of the citizens but offend cultural sensitivity and promotes degeneration.

“Unfortunately, and unconsciously, the government and people of Nigeria are creating an enabling environment for SGBV to thrive by supporting BBNaija.

“This so-called entertainment not only gulps trillions of naira, it offers no productive ventures for our teeming unemployed youth.

“For the long term, it escalates the rate of SGBV, the cost of which cannot be estimated. government must do a cost benefit analysis of what BBNaija stands to contribute to the development of youths in Nigeria.

“In our estimation, it is not a project that benefits the majority, and should be banned. It offends our cultural sensitivities and promotes degeneration,” she said.

KanyiDaily recalls that the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, had also called for a replacement for the BBNaija show, saying it “misrepresenting the goodness and integrity of the Nigerian youths”.
