It’s nice to see Desmond Elliot using his lawmaker status to push for the Nollywood industry! The movie director and actor was elected as a lawmaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Surulere Constituency earlier this year.
The Department movie star facilitated a forum recently on the issue of piracy in the industry. Stakeholders in Nollywood and lawmakers at the meeting discussed how the Lagos state government could make money from revenue if an enabling environment is created.
Desmond Elliot emphasized how piracy had been curtailed in Ghana, South Africa and other African countries but wondered why it had become a plague in Nigeria.
Keep it up, Desmond as we all hope for a better Nollywood!
