He recently revealed this at a recent event, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, the movie industry obviously has a lot of power, and with power comes a responsibility to tell stories that inspire goodness, motivate thoughtful acts in the country.
He added that without turning Nollywood into cheerleaders of our nation, the stories of men and women thriving through adversity and innovating for prosperity despetately needs to be told.
His words, “This is power. And with power comes a responsibility to tell stories that inspire goodness, motivate thoughtful acts, encourage fraternity, and uplift the human condition. You also have a responsibility to tell the best stories of our beloved country. I do not propose to turn you into cheerleaders for a Nigeria that does not exist. But the stories of men and women thriving through adversity and innovating for prosperity needs to be told, and it falls to you to tell those stories.”
“I hold in my heart a fundamental belief that our highest aspirations for Nigeria can only be achieved by the combined effort of patriots working together to make real the vision of a prosperous and peaceful country. You have shown through your dogged pursuit of success that you represent the best of the Nigerian spirit. I call on you now to rise to the higher calling and join in the joint task of building a nation we will always be proud of.”
