Viral Reports a few days ago has it that Minister Of Information and Culture in Nigeria,Alhaji Lai Mohammed ordered National Broadcasting Commission(NBC) to suspend the transmission of Popular Ongoing Reality TV Show,Big Brother Naija. Anyways,the Minister in a recent statement has debunked the report dubbing it ‘False’
This comes as the Minister reacted to the reports which claimed he gave the order to Acting Director-General of the NBC, Armstrong Idachaba, over fears of a possible spread of COVID-19 among the housemates.
However, Mr Mohammed, in a statement by his media aide, Segun Adeyemi, slammed the report by describing it as a “lie”, PMnews report.
“The report was not credited to the minister. That statement is not credited to the minister. We will not dignify speculative reports; if a minister issues a directive, it will not be issued verbally.
“There’s going to be a memo to that effect that he will send; anybody that is sure that the minister made that statement should provide a memo.
“Like I said earlier, we will not dignify speculative report; if you tune your satellite TV to channel 198, I am sure Big Brother Naija is still airing, contrary to the speculative report that the minister has ordered NBC to suspend the show,” the statement read.
