With the poor outing of President Goodluck Jonathan re-election bid, the Nollywood industry is currently strategising on how they could come together to get the attention of the President elect, General Mohammadu Buhari, to continue the works which GEJ had started.

Recall that when President Goodluck visited Lagos to have an interactive session with entertainers, had urged the dazzling industry that he was going to merge it into the Ministry of Culture and Tourism after veteran singer, Sir Victor Uwaifo had made a plea to his Excellency.

Well, veteran movie producer, Tunde Kelani, has called wished and hope that the new President elect would map out strategies to help see that the industry grows in terms of policy formulation and help in promoting the industry better.

“Well, what I know is that outside of oil and gas which is now seriously economically affected, I think the creative industry's contribution to economic development is going to be huge and therefore, I think that the government should map out the Nigerian creative industry in order to identify the diversity and terms of practice and everything. I think the creative industry itself needs a policy to take advantage of the huge potentials in the industry. And government should look at the kind of intervention that would build the creative industry,” he told the Nation.
