Nollywood: Fans Slam Minister Of Works And Housing, Babatunde Fashola

Published

on

Fashola

Nigeria’s Minister of  Works and Housing, Babatunde Raji Fashola, has come under serious criticisms following his attack on the movie industry popular as Nollywood.

The former Governor of Lagos State who spoke as the guest speaker at the fourth annual public lecture/symposium organised by the United Action for Change (UAC), themed, ‘Security of Citizens As A Social Contract’ said Nollywood movies, could be fuelling kidnapping, given the number of persons the police have arrested with human skull and other body parts, with the motive of money ritual.

He urged movie makers to stop promoting money ritual and kidnapping, adding that money ritual is a myth.

Fashola said, “Some people believe that if you get a man’s head or a woman’s body parts, they could be turned into money. It’s not true! And when you ask people who believe in it if they have seen it happen before, they tell you someone said they had seen it.

“However, it has become a reinforced belief through entertainment, social media and Nollywood. How can human head bring money? Money is paper invented by man, not God. They put the paper in a machine to print what we call money and that is the only place money comes from.

“But the challenge is the belief system. Just think about how many people have been missing through kidnapping because some people believe that it exists. The police could tell us the number of people they have apprehended with human parts, such as skulls. This belief system must go.

“Therefore, all of us, including those who make the films, must reverse the story and start selling a new story that money is printed in a machine and not through any other way like money rituals.”

Following Fashola’s statement about the movie industry considered one of the largest in the world, fans took to Twitter to condemn Fashola, questioning the link of his office to the  movie industry.

Questions about what politicians in general promote also came to fore with the minister in the forefront of criticisms from fans of Nollywood who thought he should focus more on his ministry rather than the entertainment industry.
