The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has warned Christians against patronising reality TV show, Big Brother Naija.
The association described the show as evil and urged well-meaning Nigerians to join in the protest against it.
CAN Rivers state chairman, Stanley Dimkpa, made the comment while hailing three Local government Chairmen in the state over their handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.
He argued that the immorality being portrayed in the BBNAIJA show should be vehemently condemned because it breeds evil.
“As Christians this, this ceremony is aimed at promoting diligence and reinvigorating a positive lifestyle and collectively making our state better.
“A state where tribe, creed, political party and church do not matter in the scheme of things but a state where equity, equality, qualification, truth and hard work are necessary criteria and conditions for justice.
“Promotion and appointment in all fields of life where reward and good morals will encourage everyone to abhor evil and do what is right. Romans 12:9.
All these are needed to replace what we have in our world today where societal ills, crimes and immoral behaviours are geometrically increasing due to bad governance, poverty and reward for wrongdoing, such as Big Brother Naija.
“I want to emphasize Big Brother Naija because all of us have to fight collectively to stop this immoral act and injustice in our land, as Christians and Africans, we have respect for mankind.
“For those of us that have allowed our friends and families to encourage the patronage of Big Brother Naija, know that it is evil and we must clamp down on it,” he said.
