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

Published

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.

Coronavirus: Beverly Naya Ask Salient Question

Beverly Naya

Nollywood actress, Beverly Naya has asked a salient question in line with the stay-at-home advice given to Nigerians.

The advice came in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic and the way it has continued to spread.

Questioning the logic behind the advice, Naya asked who would support the low-income earners while they stay at home.

She wrote:

“Who will support the low-income earners while at home? How can they possibly be convinced that staying at home could save their lives when hunger and poverty give them stress on a daily basis. They will definitely be needing financial assistance, I hope FG realises this.

“The sooner we realise that living in Lala land is not what will protect us, the better for everyone. Everyone needs to be on their toes so people can take this pandemic seriously! The more information we have, the better prepared we’ll be to protect ourselves and our loved ones.”

 

Recall that the Director of Public Policy Initiative at Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Foundation, Amara Nwankpa had advised the Federal Government to declare work-free days and encourage stay at home.

 

He tweeted;

 

Nigerians are being asked to take a lot of personal responsibility for preventing the spread of #COVID19 but the Federal Government needs to step up and declare work free days and encourage stay at home. If you don’t do it, it will be hard to pull this off.

Reacting to the advice, Beverly Naya wondered how low-income earners can be convinced that staying at home could save their lives when hunger and poverty give them stress on a daily basis. She added that low-income earners will definitely need financial assistance.
