Veteran Nigerian broadcaster cum actor, Sadiq Daba, has disclosed that he can never act a movie in Nigeria that has various parts in it.

According to him, he is not fully into acting but when he accepts scripts, he takes his time to study it before accepting the roles.

He stressed that he has lots of scripts pending at home but cannot feature in a movie that has part 1, 2, 3, all because he wants to make money.

I'm not fully back into acting. I act when my friends have a good script and they invite me. It's not like my 7am to 5pm kind of work. I do it sometimes. For example, I featured in October 1. It was a fantastic script and I like the story. But then, you don't see me doing 'part one', 'part two' and 'To God be the glory' kind of movies. I won't do that. I cannot because people do it, then join them because I want money. In my house, I have stack of scripts, I pick and choose. That I want money does not mean I would sell my respect or my birthright because I have a duty to people. For some of those movies, it is tomfoolery from the beginning to the end.
