(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The federal government of Nigeria has dismissed claims that it has banned the ongoing reality show in the country, saying the reports are mere speculations.
It will be recalled that reports came from social media that the Minister of Information and Cultural Orientation, Alhaji Laim Mohamed, has ordered that the programme be banned on television.
Reacting to this, Segun Adeyemi, the media aide to the minister, stated that the report was not true.
He said: “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.
However, some Nigerians are basking in the euphoria of the reality show as they took to Twitter to express their views about housemates and other things.
Here are some of their tweets.
