Social media users on Friday reacted to the call by the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) to ban reality television show, Big Brother Naija (BBN).

The Muslim body had written a petition to President Muhammadu Buhari calling on him to ensure that the Federal Government stops the airing of the television show.

MURIC Director, Professor Ishaq Akintola in the petition labeled the show as ‘immoral, dangerous and bohemian’

They also wondered why the Ministry of Information and Culture and the National Orientation Agency are doing nothing over the show.

This petition sparked a reaction from social media users who took to Twitter to express disapproval. Many using the hashtag #BBNaija #MURIC laughed at the petition noting that the Television show is rated 18 and energy should be channeled to tackling major challenges confronting Nigeria.

I’m not really a big fan of BBN but MURIC calling on Buhari to ban the TV show is another example of misplaced priorities.#BBNaijia
