Segun Runsewe, the Director-General of the National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAA), has asked the House of Representatives to give his council powers to go after organizers of Big Brother Nigeria over n#dity in the reality TV show.
Runsewe, who made the call on Tuesday, October 4, also seek power to go after crossdressers like Bobrisky.
While appearing before an ad hoc committee investigating the duplication of ministries, departments and agencies, Runsewe stated that n#dity as displayed by the organizer of the popular show is against the culture of Nigeria.
The DG stated that proper amendment of the council’s act will allow them to go after BBN organizers and crossdressers like
“I am the first person who took Big Brother Nigeria to the NBC to report them because they were having…
.. I took it up and Big
Brother (organisers) tried to reach me and I told them that if the culture in other parts of the world is to be [email protected] – n#dity, etc., they should not bring it to Nigeria because our culture is rich and it respects the integrity of our country.
This honourable House just needs to empower us with just a legal framework and that nonsEnse will stop,” he said.
