Lai Mohammed Asks NBC To Stop BBNaija From Airing 'Cause Of COVID-19 Concerns

The minister of information and culture, Lai Mohammed, has called on the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission (NBC) to end the show over fears that it might escalate cases of the coronavirus.

According to The Cable, Mohammed’s directives were forwarded to the acting director-general of the NBC, Armstrong Idachaba, who on Wednesday, July 22, relayed the order to management members of the commission.

There are reports that MultiChoice Ltd, the producers of the reality, had explained to the NBC that it has secured the approval of the government having promised housemates and the organizing crew will strictly obey all the safety protocols against COVID-19.

MultiChoice stated that it got the green light to go ahead with the show from Safety Commission (LSSC).

The season 5 would be broadcast live and alongside the eviction shows and the weekly highlights.

The season’s prize money promises to be bigger including other surprises for viewers and fans of the show.

The organisers had noted that they would ensure that global best practices, precautions, and preventive measures would be followed throughout the show especially as regards the prevalence of the COVID-19 pandemic.
