A Nigerian Missionary Priest who is very popular on social media, Fr Kelvin Ugwu, has commended Nigerian youths for still being focused on Nigerian politics since the beginning of the Big Brother Naija (BBN) season seven show.
The cleric gave this commendation in a post via his official Facebook page, expressing that with the decline of interest in BBNaija this year, the show might not recover, taking the position it was initially accorded.
He further called on Nigerians especially the youths to channel their energy toward voting for the right leaders in the 2023 general elections so that the monetary enticement that pushes people to go for the reality tv show and commit all sorts of immoral acts will naturally lose its hold on anyone.
His post which was obtained by Africa Daily News, New York, ‘Rest Well BBNaija. I want to sincerely commend you all. They told you that you won’t be focused once the immoral big brother Naija show begins.
‘They tried to reduce your sense of judgment, they concluded that you will choose the show over the desire to push for a better government. But you have proven them wrong so far. Even the organizers did not rate you.
‘Nothing is more important than getting it right this time around. Instead of voting for housemates who do not have any value to add to our future, we will channel the energy towards voting for the right leaders so that there will be jobs that can pay our youths well, and by that, the monetary enticement that pushes people to go for big brother Naija and commit all sorts of immoral acts will naturally lose its hold on anyone who is really hard working.
‘With the decline of interest in BBNaija this year, I don’t see the show recovery and taking the position it was initially accorded. Rest well BBNaija. Zugodi ezigbo ike!’
Africa Daily News, New York reports that the reality show will end in two weeks.
