Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, the Ooni of Ife, has joined the increasing number of personalities to call for the scrapping of Big Brother Naija reality TV show.
The monarch stated that BBNaija misrepresents “the goodness and integrity of the Nigerian youths”. He instead advocated for a new show that will be more beneficial to the young populace..
The Ooni spoke at an interaction with youths who visited him in Ile-Ife as part of the celebration of International Youth Day.
While describing the youths as the country’s untapped immeasurable wealth and resources and urged them to take leadership roles, the Ooni also knocked young Nigerians for misplacing their priorities.
“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 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.
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.
The revered monarch went further to suggest a new reality TV show, which will project the country’s values and tradition.
He called on leaders of the National Youth Council of Nigeria to work out modalities for the organizing of a show which will be called; The Big Nigeria Reality Show.
