    When we should be empowering youths to be exemplary models to make our already damaged value system improve, we are still encouraging mediocrity. Even nigerian expatriates are coming back home to encourage this show of shame. Why doesn’t BBN encourage intellectual /academic based competition that will further improve the capacity of our youths for better productivity than engage them in activities that dont promote excellent values.

      I wouldn’t say you’re wrong for thinking that way, but just don’t forget BBN is a reality entertainment show on the TV. It’s not an academic competition, talents hunt or a scholarship stuff, as we already have lots of that already. Don’t be a mediocre yourself
