Ajigijaga tasks ANTP on progress
Nollywood super star Mufutau Sanni Abdulahi otherwise known as Ajigijaga, has advocated for effective governing of the Association of Nigerian Theatre Arts Practitioners (ANTP) by its elected officials, saying the body has a lot to do in making the organisation's vision and objectives more feasible.
ANTP in Nigeria is one of the bodies set aside specifically to see to the affairs of motion pictures practitioners. The association has roots at Unit level, Local, State and National level respectively. Prince Jide Kosoko remains the national President of the association, while Alhaji Olayiwola Akeem Alimi a.k.a Ajala is the ANTP Governor Lagos State chapter.
Ajigijaga dropped this hint at the association's state meeting held at Agidingbi Ikeja. In his words: ''ANTP has long standing records of excellence and I thank the current national President of the association Prince Jide Kosoko and the Lagos state chapter's governor of our association. I'm aware the task ahead them is enormous, but they can still put in more efforts in making the goals, vision, aspirations, objectives of the association a reality. They still need to speak to all concerned stakeholders in Nigeria like the government, corporate bodies etc, to come to the aid of the association and Nollywood at large.''
The ace crime actor however uses the opportunity to dispel rumours that he was nursing an ambition to run as ANTP State Governor in their next association's election.
Said he: ''People could be funny at times, how can I be nursing ambition to run as ANTP governor in Lagos State? It's pretty much disgusting and premature for anyone to come up with such blatant lie or insinuation. Since my inception into movie industry, my deep passion has always been focused on acting, producing, directing, nothing more. I never had the intention to nurse ambition for any elective position in any capacity, at least for now. In future may be, but I'm still not sure. And for the present officials of ANTP, I wish them more knowledge and understanding for the management and progress of the esteemed organization.''
He however, assured his fans both locally and internationally that his new film which centres on crime will soon hit the market giving his word that he is still talking with some local marketers to firm up all outstanding plans to make the film. He implores his fans and lovers to reach him on +2348033191815 or +2348057028477.
