Nigeria’s information and culture minister, – Lai Mohammed has reacted to the alleged directive to suspend the Big Brother Naija reality TV show.
Last week, some media outlets made claims that the minister of information and culture ordered NBC to stop airing the reality show.
Lai Mohammed, has now debunked those claims that he directed the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission (NBC) to suspend the Big Brother Naija show.
A statement made by Mohammed’s media aide, Segun Adeyemi, outrightly distanced the minister from the purported order to the NBC, PM News reports.
“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.”
