Nollywood Stakeholders Forum (NSF) has urged the President Elect- General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd) to continue the precedent established by President Goodluck Jonathan and restructure the current state of Nollywood, and afford practitioners the opportunity to participate actively in the process leading to the proper regulation of the creative industry. The body also promised to work with everything in their disposal to ensure the victory of the APC guber candidate for Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode.

Speaking in Lagos, the Coordinator of Nollywood Team Buhari on the platform of NSF, Eze Harris Chuma said: “Nollywood cannot be said to occupy a strategic position in the Nigerian economic sphere without the continued presence of the government. We therefore call on the incoming administration to address the myriads of issues militating against our practice, guarantee the protection of intellectual property, support and empower Nollywood practitioners to enable them compete favourably in the committee of international movie practitioners. While we celebrate your victory, permit us to insist that you should not neglect the potent nature of Nollywood as a veritable tool that can be deployed in promoting government policies.”

Present at the event were Director of Campaign, NTB, Comrade Alex Eyengho,  Publicity Secretary, NTB, Aisha Abimbola, Femi Falana among others.
