Yusuf Akinlotan, Lagos
The Lagos State Area Unit of Muslim Students’ Society of Nigeria (MSSN) has commended Nigerian youths who are entrepreneurs and into small or medium-scale businesses for self-sustenance and development.
The Amir, (President) of the students’ body in Lagos, Mallam Miftaudeen Thanni made the commendation on Friday in commemoration of 2022 International Youth Day.
The Lagos State Area Unit President lauded Nigerian youth who have made the country proud in their various areas of endeavour and capacities and advised others to eschew digital crime, rituals as well as quick-rich syndrome prevalent in the society.
According to the students’ leader, youths remain the nation builders and can only be realistic should they continue to shun social vices and engage in more productive activities
Thanni condemned the immortalities being promoted particularly among youths through the Nigerian reality show, Big Brother Naija.
He urged that the Nigerian government place a ban on the show whose season 7 is currently being aired.
According to him, it promotes moral decadence and illicit sexual content to the viewers who are largely youths.
“We insist that government place a ban on BBNaija as it’s having a negative effect. The reality show largely promotes pornography and this has a devastating effect on personality
“The show encourages indulgence in immoral acts particularly as secondary school students are on the long holiday period.“
International Youth Day is observed on August 12 annually to raise awareness about the challenges and hardships faced by youths all across the globe.
