Lawyer, activist, writer and former presidential aide to President Goodluck Jonathan,Reno Omokri has admonished Nigerian youths for excessively focussing on the Big Brother Naija show.
Omokri said that poverty would reduce in Nigeria if youths invested their time and money in business ventures than paying attention to the eviction of BBNaija housemates.
The former presidential aide stated this in a tweet on Sunday.
“The price of rice has increased by 60% since July when #BBNaija started. Many youths have made millions buying rice from Kebbi and Jigawa and selling it in Lagos and Port Harcourt. But, all you can boast of at that time is being up to date on BBN!
“You are so focused on who gets evicted from the #BBNaija house. If only you were as focused on getting poverty evicted from your life.
“For 2 months, you suspended your life to focus on BBN. Others used that time to suspend poverty from their life,” he tweeted.
His comments has generated mixed reactions with some agreeing with him and others saying that they can choose to do whatever they wish with their time.
