Please Prohibit Smoking In BBNaija Season 7 Show, Group Urges NBC

The Nigeria Tobacco Control Alliance Group has urged the National Broadcasting Commission to prohibit smoking in the upcoming Big Brother Naija Season 7.

 

The group said tobacco advertising had persisted in Nigerian movies and digital spaces, despite the ban placed by the National Tobacco Control Act, 2015.

 

Below is there statement and reasons,

“We wish to make it clear that should there be reluctance on the part of the regulators or the organisers to ensure a smoke-free programme, we will explore every available option in the interest of public health. It is important to note that entertainment products set the agenda for many young people because they are the eyes through which they see the world.

 

“We sound a note of caution to the organisers of BBN and a reminder of their responsibility towards the Nigerian population.“At this time when Nigerians are hungry for quality leadership, a programme with such national reach must be used to portray high-standing role models for the Nigerian people.
