NOW THAT BIG BROTHER NAIJA HAS ENDED.
The Popular TV reality show known as Big Brother Naija which started some weeks ago ended yesterday amidst wild celebration by fans of the contestants.
Nigerians are fond of celebrating irrelevancies and giving attentions to things that do not add value to them - always misplacing priorities. I want to quickly draw your attention to some sensitivities surrounding the big brother naija show.
The big brother naija show was hosted in South Africa; a Nigerian reality TV show hosted in another country. The economical implication of this is that the big brother naija show did not add any value to the Nigerian economy instead it took away from the economy as 11 million plus votes was recorded each of these votes cost 30 Naira, I will leave you to do the mathematical calculations.
The big brother naija reality show caught the attention of almost all Nigerians that had access to the view including the minors, exposing them to the obscenities and immoralities that the show promotes contrary to the rich cultural values of our dear country.
The energy Nigerians channeled into the big brother Naija show in supports for their different favorite housemates is of no value to them and the country, such energy will be better productive if channeled to support the government to make life better for an average Nigerian.
Nigerians give too much attention to irrelevant issues, they show concern to things of no value; a lot of things are wrong in the country at the moment and we have just few Nigerians showing concern and talking about them. We see public office holders abusing their office and celebrating their irresponsibility openly without shame and most Nigerians don't see reasons to condemn such impunity.
We see elected political leaders stealing from people who they are supposed to make provisions for, we hear of misappropriation of public funds by politicians, we witness brutality of innocent citizens by government security agents and all we do is take pictures and make videos, the Nigerian airforce bombed Rann IDP camp killing close to 300 Citizens we are quiet because they said it was a mistake up till now I doubt if their is any ongoing investigation about the genocide just to mention a few, most Nigerians didn't see any reason to raise their voices against this happenings but jumped out in millions to campaign for the big brother Naija show.
The civic responsibilities of every Nigerian as citizen of Nigeria includes holding their leaders accountable until government at all levels fulfill their campaign promises thereby making life easier for an average Nigerian. The attention given to the big brother naija show where people parade their nakedness and go home with millions is inconsequential, Nigerians should learn to give their attentions to issues that will promote and benefit National life.
