Former Director-General of the Bureau of Public Service Reforms, Joe Abah, has come under criticism for attacking youths over the viewing of reality TV show, Big Brother Naija.

Dr Abah, in a tweet on Sunday, said that Nigerian youths prefer watching Big Brother Naija than being mentored.


He also attacked the younger generations saying they prefer to talk about happenings in the reality show than engage government in national issues.

“You try to be big brother to Naija youth but they prefer #BigBrotherNaija. You trend #EndSARS to protect them, although SARS will never harass you the way they harass them, but they prefer to trend #ReleaseTacha. As many parents often ask, ‘At what point exactly did I go wrong?’” he said.

Nigerians on Twitter have poured their anger on the former bureaucrat, saying his generation failed the country.
