Ali Nuhu, the director of the Nigerian Film Corporation and a renowned actor, is confident that the movie industry in Nigeria has the power to effectively revive the nation’s integrity.
During his recent interview with BBC Hausa, Nuhu emphasized that only 35 percent of Nigerian films currently meet the desired standard of quality, while ideally, this number should be between 70 and 75 percent.
Ali Nuhu firmly believes that through high-quality Nigerian cinema, the country’s integrity can be regained.
Ali Nuhu is convinced that the film industry has the ability to showcase a more realistic and positive image of Nigeria to the rest of the world, ultimately transforming international perceptions and reinstating the nation’s integrity.
“If you look at the films we produce in Nigeria’s film industry, you would see that only 30-35 per cent meet desired quality as against 70-75 per cent.
So I will focus on this by making sure we are more educated and the provisions of quality equipment.
“We have ambition of transforming the industry into one of the world best because we don’t need quantity, what we need most is quality over quantity.
“Some bad eggs among the industry have given Nigeria a bad name, so through these films, we will restore our integrity”.
