•Fears that housemate may be a bad influence on other students
Vice Chancellor of the Imo State University (IMSU), Owerri, Prof. Adaobi Obasi, has said that Nina, one of the housemates in the on-going Big Brother Naija (BBN) reality show is one of her students and would be kept under close watch on her return to the campus.
This is also as the Vice Chancellor noted that the housemate may have to undergo some form of rehabilitation on her return to purge her of the indecent influences of the BBN show.
This, Professor Obasi said, was to forestall Nina from having a bad influence on other students of the university where she is currently a student.
The Vice-Chancellor made the disclosure while playing host to members of the Independent Newspaper Proprietors Association (INPA) led by their chairman, Mr Chidi Emeagi, at her office in Owerri. Obasi wondered the morals behind the BBN show which Nina may seek to inculcate in her mates.
According to her, she is piqued that Nina said she would “sort out IMSU” on her return from BBN after abandoning her studies for the show
Obasi said: “That one of my students is now in Big Brother Naija is nothing to be proud about. It is not the type of thing we seek to promote because I don’t see the need it serves.
It is our prayer that whatever influences driving this young lady now, does not affect other students here. I really do not know what purpose the BBN serves or the morals and values its’ teaching. Maybe I am the only one who doesn’t know. I don’t know what it celebrates. Is it just all about indecency in the full glare of the public?
“Can you imagine her telling my students that she will sort us out when she returns? We are waiting for her to come and sort us out. With that kind of mindset, if this girl comes back, I will watch her and make sure she left all the unfortunate influences and indecencies behind at the BBN house.” (New Telegraph)
