Yesterday I saw an interview where Desmond Elliot said govt has to ban the importation of foreign movies/entertainment so that Nollywood can grow.

He actually said “Govt should do like it did with rice”.

Is it crack? Really is it?

Hon Desmond Elliot would have made more sense advocating for strengthening copyright laws rather than proposing a ban on foreign movies.

“Government has to ban the importation of foreign movies so that Nollywood can grow. Make it difficult for foreign content to come in, so your local content can grow” – Desmond Elliot.
