Nov 19, 2014 – Nollywood Intervention Fund: Jonathan Gives N215M To Filmmakers

President Jonathan Gives N215M To 26 Nollywood Filmmakers As Unemployment In Nigeria Worsen

Oga on top in Abuja has dolled out a whopping N215.5 Million to 26 movie makers who applied for Nollywood intervention fund grant.

The grant was made available to Nollywood practitioners under Project ACT Nollywood initiative by President Jonathan.

Although sources say the monies will take two weeks to clear, the filmmakers got between N15million and N2million, depending on the magnitude of the film project they proposed.

Minister of Finance hailed Jonathan for his contribution to creativity in Nollywood.

“President Goodluck Jonathan is very much aware of the contribution of creative industry to the economic development of the country and I think several states have also tried to attract the industry.

“He had always believed in the power of the creative industries to try and help transform the country. – Okonjo Iweala praises Jonathan

How is this going to help unemployment in Nigeria.

Why can’t he use the money to create real jobs for the youths… How many of our graduates have acting skills????

This Jonathan self, who are his advisers???

    Misplaced priorities is the necessarily why not use it to create a manufacturing company that will employ the youths. These leaders are heartless, dumb and stupid

    This comes in after massive protest that was rotating the social media with reports that only N3000 has been give to the movie industry.

    Jonathan is a confused arrangement he does not know what to do next. Has even forgotten about the 200 chibok girls he has married off to boko haram.

    Akuwax rep for Southern African youths.

    Goodluck is tryin no doubt, but is dis necessary? Must evryone produce a movie? Must evryone act? Must dis kind of unnecessary expenses made? If every organisation in 9ja starts goin to Gudluk to raise funds then I ve no choice. Hundreds of film re released in a day yet some produce rubbish and one can’t claim he/she has watched all or is dis. Kind of campaign for political ambition. See unemployment everywhere infact Nysc allowee shd be increased also bc we re dedicated serving our fatherland while some mere producers walk away wit millions,INCREASE NYSC ALLOWEE bc its nt enough. Nollywood MY ASS!!!
