Movie producer tasks Nigerians in Diaspora on national development

ABUJA – Roseline Sanni-Ajose, a movie producer, has called on Nigerians in the Diaspora to return home and bring their wealth of experience to national development.

Sanni-Ajose made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Friday at the premiere of her movie, titled “Labo” (Life is a journey).

The movie, which is the first cultural cinema to premiere in Nigeria, dwells on the interplay of transitional cultural values through the trajectory of the Caribbean, Nigeria and English customs across the globe.

She said that she was inspired to produce the movie because of her personal experience abroad and the need to wean Nigerians of the obsession of travelling abroad to succeed.

“A lot of people in the UK complain about the poor state of infrastructure in Nigeria but if you think you have what it takes as someone living abroad, come home and let us build Nigeria together.

“We, living in Diaspora, need to come home and stop criticising the government and stop criticising Nigeria and stop projecting negative image about our country,’’ she said.

She said she was beginning to lose touch with her language and culture and as such she decided to retrace her steps by coming back home and helping “the lost sheep’’ through her movie, to return home.

She stressed the need for Nigerians in the Diaspora to get off the illusion that they were better than those in Nigeria because they would always remain  second class citizens abroad. [eap_ad_1] She said life outside the country was difficult because everyone had to pay their prize somehow.

She said “that is why you find people going into drugs and crimes to make ends meet and they end up in prison.

“Let us join hands with President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan in building this country because it is our home.”

She, however, said it was not easy that the movie was a success because we had a lot of financial challenges and getting the crew members also was not all easy.

The movie portrays the life of a family of mixed race who tried to relocate to their country to contribute their quota to national development. (NAN)
