Oct 24, 2016 – Dele Odule Urges FG To Build Nollywood Film Village & Enforce Strict Anti Piracy Law

Nollywood actor Odule today urged NASS to enact a law enforcing stiffer penalty on anybody found guilty of piracy.

The National President Of TAMPAN made the appeal in Ilorin while speaking to reporters this morning.

The veteran actor said that piracy which is occurring at an alarming rate in Nigeria needs to be curbed.

He attributed the illegal act to low penalty meted out to offenders.

His words:

“Film producers in Nigeria do not have retirement benefits like civil servants and ordinarily, their production should be their benefits after retirement.
“However, in a situation where these works have been pirated, they are doomed and have nothing to look forward to in future,’’ .

He also appealed to the FG to create a large film village where actors would be required to pay a token to the government to achieve their mission.

Dele Odule also solicited that loans with low interest rates be provided to actors.
