kufre – Abasi Moses Eskor popularly called prophet Joe over is a film director (DGN),also the president of Akwa- Cross Indigenous Movies Maker Association (ACIMA) . He became the substantive president of the association in 2010.

Below are the manifesto he made before he was sworn in.

1 Every actor, producer, director, other technical crew members must always go home with a smile on his/her face after a production and with assurance of more jobs and guaranteed future.

2 The association shall be inculcate the culture of discipline and true professionalism in the industry with the fear of God as the bedrock .

Perhaps these are mere promised made to secure the mantle of the president.

In less than five months, young girl are be sexual abuse in the industry by the so called president by sleeping with them and promised them a role in a movies production, more time not only sexual abuse, but they will be abandoned without been paid for the role they acted for.

The question is?

Is these how our girl will continue to suffer in the hands of the so called director, producers, production manager in the industry?

What about the promised Mr Eskor made to protect the interest of the artists, also to protect their welfare,and inculcate discipline and professionalism in the industry with the fear of God.

Are we going to fold our hands and continue to labour for the producers, after the production go home without been pay?

Will N500, N1500 take care of our needs as an actors?

For God sake we will no more work for 8 days in a particular production and collect N1000, no more no more no more.

We shall no more work without a welfare. artists shall no more sleep outside the hotel premises, and be embarrass by the hotel management,artist shall no more sleep with a director before giving a role.

Is these what Mr Eskor refer, when he said every actors and technical crews will be smile at every production, and be assure of more jobs and guaranteed future?

Please my fellow artists, let rise up and fight his incessant menace in the industry, let us give chance to our young starlet to showcase their talent God has invested in them, also to protect their interest irrespective of their sex or tribe
