NBC Told To Sanction BBNaija For Public Smoking

 The BBNaija show which has entered season 6 show ‘Shine Ya Eyes’, was accused of flouting the government’s directive on smoking.

‘The Nigeria Tobacco Control Alliance, NTCA, an anti-tobacco group,  and the Corporate Accountability and Public Participation Africa (CAPPA) have jointly written to the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) to sanction the Big Brother Naija show.




The BBNaija show which has entered season 6 show ‘Shine Ya Eyes’, was accused of flouting the government’s directive on smoking.

The group insists action must be taken by the appropriate agency of government to sanction the show.

In a letter seen by DAILY POST, the anti-tobacco organisation reminded the NBC of its directive to the organisers of BBNaija show.

It said provisions of the National Tobacco Control Act 2015 and the National Tobacco Control Regulations 2019, which banned advertisement and promotion of tobacco has been breached.

Citing the specific section of the offences, the group asserted: “Section 12(1) of the NTC Act 2015.”

The letter which was jointly signed by heads of both organisations, CAPPA’s Executive Director, Akinbode Oluwafemi, and NTCA Programme Manager, Chibuike Nwokorie, wants the Director-General of the National Broadcasting Commission, Balarabe Shehu Ilelah to take prompt action.



They complained that the programme was an enticing one and kids below age 18 are drawn to it, adding that the housemates were seen smoking cigarettes on August 2, 5, 10, 11 and 13.
