According to him, President Goodluck Jonathan supported the industry and wonders if Mr. Buhari would do same and even better
Nigerian comic actor, John Okafor popularly known as Mr Ibu, says he is scared of how the incoming administration of Muhammadu Buhari would take the creative industry in Nigeria.
According to him, President Goodluck Jonathan supported the industry and wonders if Mr. Buhari would do same and even better.
“It is only this outgoing President of Nigeria that I can think of as someone who has so much interest in developing Nollywood. I have never seen someone like that before who supports us that much. But I am seriously afraid of what next.”
“We don’t know what could happen but I’m scared. I’m scared and watching. The people who met President Jonathan probably got his attention and we expected that they would work towards building a film village for AGN that would serve as rendezvous for card-carrying members - a place whereby tourists can take a recreational tour, take photographs with actors and actresses just like Hollywood. But as it stands, that’s a mirage”, Mr. Ibu noted.
