Former Presidential Assistant, Reno Omokri, on Friday warned Africa’s most popular reality TV show, BBNaija, to prevent roommates from using the platform to campaign for their favorite presidential candidates.
Recently, BBNaija Housemate Eloswag wore a tailored single-word outfit that has become popular on Nigerian social media in recent weeks due to Labor Party presidential candidate Peter Obi.
The inscription on Eloswag’s hoodie reads; “Be obedient and helpful.”
Omokri, who had previously ruled that season 7 had distracted Obi’s supporters, complained about Eloswag’s action on Friday, July 29, saying such an exhibition could polarize viewers. Omokri said on his verified Twitter:
“Dear @BBNaija, your show is widely watched in Nigeria. It is beneficial to be apolitical. Actions on the program can polarize viewers, something that can affect the real world. You may want to pay more attention to avoid recurrence.”
