Nollywood actor, Alex Ekubo, has called on the Federal Government to make budgetary provisions for the nation’s entertainment industry as it happens to be the only functioning industry in Nigeria. Alex maintains that the government needs to improve quality and attract revenue for the country.

Alex made the appeal in an interview in Abuja on Thursday, “The Federal Government should have a specific budget for entertainment sector every year, especially movie and music.

They should also believe in the sector because when you believe in something, you will definitely support it and want to see it grow and succeed.

“Hollywood is where it is today not just because of the support they get from the government but corporations and well-meaning individuals who believe in entertainment.

“From my own point of view, the only sectors that are doing well in Nigeria today are the music and movie industries.

“When the sector is supported yearly with government budget, support from corporate organizations and well-meaning individuals, it will grow bigger and generate revenue for the government,”

Speaking further, Alex said, “Within the next five years, I see tremendous support for the industry; more investors, corporate bodies sponsoring the production of movies and more worthy individual supporting the industry.

With those, I also believe will take our ranking to the next level. However, I am also working on a couple of projects; and in due time, I will let the cats out of the bag,”
