Actors want Anambra to build film village

04 June 2014, 08:30

Awka - The Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Anambra chapter, has urged governor Willie Obiano to construct a film village in Awka to serve as a tourist centre.

The Chairman of AGN in the state, Samson Obidinma, made the call during the guild’s Democracy Charity Carnival in Awka on Sunday.
Obidinma said the centre would serve as a rallying point for entertainers as well as boost the state government’s revenue generation.
The chairman also appealed to the governor to assist the organisation to build a befitting secretariat as well to provide them with location buses.

He noted that the guild, was raring to produce movies that would change the attitude of the people from the negative to the positive.

  “As partners in progress with the government at all levels in job creation, nation-building and employment, there is no gainsaying that many graduates who should have been roaming the streets in  search white collar jobs are now gainfully employed. As the third largest movie producer in the world after the United States Hollywood and Indian Bollywood, the Nollywood is equally a foreign exchange earner for the nation,” Obidinma said.
