FG tells filmmakers to avoid money ritual contents
The Federal Government today directed filmmakers to eschew money ritual contents in their movies.
Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, stated this during a media visit to Daily Trust office in Abuja.
The minister said the confession of some money ritual suspects that they learnt the heinous act on social media have boosted the resolve of the Federal Government to sanitize the social media.
He said, “Many have also blamed Nollywood for featuring money rituals in some of its movies, saying this has negatively influenced the vulnerable youth. To mitigate this, I have directed the National Film and Video Censors Board, the body set up to regulate the film and video industry in Nigeria, to take this issue into consideration while performing its role of censoring and classifying films and videos.
“I have also directed NFVCB to engage with stakeholders in the film industry in order to express the concerns of the government and Nigerians on the need to eschew money ritual content in their movies.”
