Gov. Ikpeazu: Nollywood has made the world respect Nigeria


Who would have known that the current governor of Abia State, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, is not only a lover of movies but a big Nollywood buff? Well, during the acceptance of hosting rights of Best of Nollywood Awards 2016, the governor made his love for the entertainment industry known during his speech. He acknowledged that the sector was contributing immensely to the GDP of the country and promised to continue supporting the sector the best way he could.
He said, “For us in Abia State, Nollywood has contributed immensely to the well-being of our people because one of the marketing and distribution pivots of the industry, Pound Road, is here in Aba, the SME capital of Africa. Just like Idumota in Lagos and Iweka Road, Onitsha, Pound Road contributes more than 50 per cent to Nollywood. So, prior to now, I always thought about how to further get involved with the industry which is why we are working on a film village and are glad to host the Best of Nollywood Awards 2016 in December.”
The governor said that unlike in the past when the country had a bad reputation, Nollywood has succeeded in making the world respect Nigerians as creative people. “Unlike in the past when Nigeria used to receive a lot of flaks from the outside world, now, we receive considerable buffer from Nollywood. Nollywood has given us a new level of respect across the world,” he said.
In his words, the founder of BON, Seun Oloketuyi, thanked the governor for his support.
He said, “The Best of Nollywood Awards was created in 2009 as a veritable premium platform to honour the enterprise and ingenuity of stars and stakeholders of the Nigerian movie industry otherwise known as Nollywood. I am happy to say that we now have the longest running home grown movie awards ceremony. We designed BON as a travelling awards ceremony and in the intervening years, it has been hosted by Ogun State government under Otunba Gbenga Daniel, the Delta State government (Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan), the Rivers State government (Hon. Rotimi Amaechi) and the Ondo State government (Dr. Olusegun Mimiko).”
