Mr Ibu Speaks On Nollywood, The Many Battles Of AGN And How Those Who Collected Money From Jonathan will DIE

0
Lol, Nollywood
actor, Mr Ibu in an interview with Vanguard Newspaper has poured out his mind
on the challenges of Nollywood and its leaders and how most of his colleagues
have turned themselves into beggars parading government houses to beg for alms.
Ibu says the alleged $200m given to them by the former administration could not
be accounted for and many still collected money on behalf of AGN because
Jonathan loved Nollywood so much. Ibu however said all those who collected
money on their behalf and didn’t deliver it will all die because they have
killed many souls in the process. He also spoke about people embracing peace
and letting it reign in Nollywood. The interview after the cut.

What do you
foresee for the Nollywood industry in 2016?
The picture
I foresee for the Actors Guild of Nigeria, AGN, in 2016 is big. But there is a
clause. The clause there is that we should stop attacking each other. If we
stop attacking each other by going to court and police every minute including
washing our dirty leaning in the public, we will go far. AGN is one all over
the world. Our own should not be an exception. Good administration has eluded
us for so long now. We do not have people that can pilot the affairs of the
AGN. We are fighting every minute. How do we succeed in life in that kind of
atmosphere? Now,I sent a proposal for Film Village to the Federal Government.
Only God in Haven knows weather it has gotten to the designated point or not.
The same thing was sent in to the government of Enugu State. We are conducting
a poll   to ascertain where will be most
suitable for citing a Film Village. Enugu State scored 83%. It means that if
ever we are going to have a film village, Enugu State is the most suitable
nationwide. Second to Enugu is Lagos, with 53% then Owerri, Asaba, 38%,34%
respectively. That is why if you watch most Nollywood films, there locations
are shot in Enugu.
So we have
more advantage than any other place. We are looking forward to having that film
village in Enugu. It is very important. Let government make us responsible
rather than looking beggarly, going to government houses and so on. I promised
myself that I will never be part of the people going to government houses
seeking   alms. Our people should stop
piling themselves in government houses. When ex-President Goodluck Jonathan was
in office, every minute they were there asking for all manners of favour. And
the ex-President loved us so much that he gave them huge money.   All those who diverted monies meant for AGN
or Movie Makers will die because they do not know the souls they have killed.
For 2016,if all these things are taken care of, AGN will do better. I am
promising one thing, am not contesting anything on the AGN but, I have a lot of
surprises.
What
happened to the money,ex-President Jonathan allegedly gave to the AGN as loan?
Laughter…I
did not see one naira oohhhh! I do not know who processed andcollected it. If
the money was released,I do not know. If they did not release it,I do not know.
The people who were supposed to give us information, talking about the
leadership of AGN, did not tell us anything even the first $200 million,nothing
was heard of it. What am looking for is hectares of land for the Film
Village,then I will leave acting.
