Glo’s Prof John­bull knocks dis­crim­i­na­tion against ge­netic flaws

Daily Trust - - IT WORLD -

The lat­est episode of the rave of the mo­ment TV Drama Series, Pro­fes­sor John­bull, pow­ered by Globa­com, will this week dwell on the is­sue of ge­netic flaws in peo­ple and the at­ten­dant dis­crim­i­na­tions they suf­fer in so­ci­ety, the com­pany has said.

An­nounc­ing the new episode in La­gos over the week­end, the com­pany said that the “new episode aptly ti­tled ‘Not One of Us’ is a wakeup call to all on the need for us to show not just re­spect to those with ge­netic flaws, but to most im­por­tantly re­gard them as nor­mal hu­man be­ings and ac­cord them the de­cent treat­ment they de­serve”.

The pro­gramme is billed for air­ing at 8.30 p.m. on Tues­day on NTA Net­work, NTA In­ter­na­tional on DSTV Chan­nel 251 and NTA on StarTimes, with re­peat broad­cast at 8.30 p.m. on Fri­day on the same chan­nels. Globa­com as­sured view­ers that “they will find the episode emo­tional, chal­leng­ing and, more im­por­tantly, ed­u­cat­ing, as the crew col­lec­tively dis­abuse the mis­con­cep­tions sur­round­ing the phys­i­cally chal­lenged in so­ci­ety”.
