MADRID, AUGUST 9TH 2019.- More than 7,600 people have asked this Thursday in Abuja that National Film and Video Censors Board stops the exhibition of nudes in the Big Brother Naija (BBN). In the online petition, promoted by CitizenGO, citizens request the CEO of NFVCB to cancel the broadcast of the program or else resign from his position as the head of the CEO

CitizenGO campaign director in Africa, Ann Kioko, explained that "The program is not only inappropriate but unpleasant, no responsible citizen can view its content without having to quickly change the channel. This is a program that cannot be seen with the family, since it's pure pornography. "

In addition, Kioko has denounced that "nudists and defenders of free sex and promiscuity will have achieved a lot if this program continues to run supported by the Federal Government of Nigeria. The most unfortunate thing is that you can see the same thing on youtube and other networking platforms.In addition to the nude scenes, the reality show encourages alcohol abuse and gambling, everything that affects our society."

Furthermore, the CitizenGO Africa Campaigns Manager has requested that this type of television program be regulated, denounced and censored. "The National Board of Film and Video Censors (NFVCB), was established by Law 85 of 1993 as the official regulatory agency for the film and video sector of the Nigerian economy. It prides itself on being the body responsible for protecting the Nigerians from harmful content, but is this the case? Are Nigerian children and families protected? " concluded Ann Kioko.
