MINISTER of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola has challenged Nigerian film makers to start producing movies that will educate people on how to make money through hard work.
Furious at the rate Nollywood has been promoting money rituals and kidnapping indirectly through movies, Fashola said it was important that moviemakers change the narrative in order to save lives from being wasted.
“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,’’ Fashola said.
The former Lagos State Governor said that it has become a reinforced belief through entertainment, social media and Nollywood that money ritual was real.
‘’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.
He said, ‘’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.”
