PHOTOS: Pere’s Fans Storm BBNaija’s Head Quarters, Stage Protest Against “Unfair” Twist
Fans of Big Brother season six, housemate, Pere have staged a protest at the Ilupeju head office of the organizers in Lagos.
The fans are complaining about the alleged injustice meted out on their favorite housemate following Biggie’s twist.
Pere and Angel were asked to play a game that would be used in determining who wins and gains access to the finals of the show after they were both evicted from the house.
However, stats show that Pere’s votes enormously topped Angel’s votes, prompting viewers to questions the integrity and credibility as the twist by Biggie seemed unfair.
Pere’s management earlier today pleaded with his fans to exercise patience and let the twists play out. But it seeming as the pleas fall on deaf ears as fans troop out in numbers to voice their displeasures at the reality show’s headquarters.
Read the press release by Pere’s management earlier today.
“Big Brother has a tradition of fair conduct spanning its history. As a platform that has helped so many people over the years, their integrity is indispensable, and the credibility of their process has barely ever been in question.
“This is why they’ve led by example over the years which in turn makes the show the biggest platform in Africa.
“The events of yesterday created so much uproar among our fans, neutrals, and even our competitors. The ripple effect of this event has thrown our voting team off-balance in terms of preparedness for the final week of voting.
“Even though we feel unfairly at a disadvantage, we still believe it’s a twist and a game that would play out eventually make our votes count. We must trust the Process and integrity of the Platform.
“The platform wouldn’t allow the efforts of millions of people that went all out to vote to go in vain. One of our major voting team coordinators had a life-threatening accident last week while trying to solicit and coordinate our votes, not to talk of different incidents involving our team members in different states putting them in harm’s way while voting tirelessly.
“They invested resources, time, sweat, and sleepless nights just to get Pere into the final week.
“It’s being rumored that some of our supporters are planning on taking certain actions to express their anger and frustration.
“We appreciate every one of you, for your unwavering solidarity, but we implore everyone to stay calm and exercise patience.
“Let’s allow the twist to play out and eventually take Pere to the finals. Make no mistakes, OUR VOTES WILL COUNT. Thanks for your support.“
