Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie, has reacted to the statement made by the Minister of Works and Housing and former governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Fashola, about Nollywood. According to Fashola, many of the movies made by Nollywood may be fueling kidnapping and ritual killings as the movies are money ritual based.
Reacting to this, Edochie told Saturday Sun that; “Sadly at the moment Nigeria is stuck with a crop of leaders who can’t move this country forward, rather they look for who to blame for their inefficiency.
“America has been producing action movies with plenty of gun violence since I was born till date, have you ever seen any American leader blaming entertainers for crime in their country? That’s because it’s all entertainment. It ends there.
“Our government should focus on providing jobs for the youths, spread wealth, improve the economy and security and crime rate will reduce. It’s very simple.
“They should stop looking for who to blame and do the jobs they were voted in to do or resign for others to try. “Next thing you’ll see them thinking of how to ban Nollywood and render more people jobless.”
