This is due to the suspension of the grant until the outcome of a committee report on the entire funding initiative.

The meeting, which held last Friday at the Ministry of Finance conference hall, also had representatives of the Minister of Information and Culture and key parastatals, like the National Film and Videos Censors Board, the Nigerian Film Corporation and the Nigerian Copyright Commission in attendance.
