Yul Edochie Replies Fashola Over His Nollywood Movies Comments
Popular Nollywood actor cum politician, Yul Edochie in a recent submission has reacted to comments made by the Minister of Works and Housing and former governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Fashola.
Fashola in his comment stated that Nollywood movies only preaches about kidnapping and ritual killings. Fashola also called on producers to stop making such movies, however, Yul Edochie seems not to agree with him.
Yul Edochie in his submission stated that banning such movies is not the right move as he believes it is all about entertainment.
“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,” he told Sunnews.
