Nollywood films are promoting money ritual and kidnapping - Fashola

 

Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, has accused Nollywood movies of promoting money rituals and kidnapping.
.
.
He said this at the United Action for Change’s Fourth Annual Public Lecture/Symposium held in Lagos State.
.
.
According to him: “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.” 📷: VON/DavidAdekunle
