Movie Producer urges FG to partner with Nollywood to reorient Nigerians

By Collins Yakubu-hammer

Abuja –  A movie producer, Mrs Josphine Abraham, also known as ‘Anumbor’ has called on the Federal Government to partner with Nollywood to reorient the mindset of Nigerians toward positive values.

Abraham told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Abuja that movies remained a vibrant medium of reorientation that could bring about positive attitudinal change.

“ I think we do need a lot of reorientation and attitudinal change for us to be able to move to the next level as a country.

“If Nigeria is unable to move from where it is right now and everybody is sitting and waiting that everything will change, then nothing is going to change.

“I think government should channel its efforts in the reorientation of Nigerians; it should not only be talk-driven,

“The government should partner with Nollywood because people who don’t want to read  or listen will like to watch movies; so government can use movies to reorient them,’’ she said.

Anumber, the producer of the movie “Searching’’ (Story of a girl child) said that the whole world had started to appreciate the Nigerian entertainment industry.

She said “it was a great opportunity to sell our country positively through entertainment to our fellow countrymen so that they begin to change their minds to work decently and do things differently.’’

She urged the government to think of areas where they could partner with the Nigerian entertainment industry to channel the minds of Nigerians toward changing their mindset.

“If you prosper so much in Nollywood industry, and you make so much money and fame and your country is in shambles, then it is equal to nothing.’’

Anumber, who is the Chief Executive Officer of “Love to the World Initiative’’, a Non Governmental Organisation (NGO) said that there was the need for people to change their mindset and attitude for the country to move forward.
