Nollywood needs ministry of entertainment – Osita Iheme

Award-winning actor and one of Aki and Pawpaw, Osita Iheme has called on the Federal Government to establish a ministry of entertainment for the creative industry.

According to The Nation, the short actor in a recent interview where he spoke on matters concerning the entertainment industry and way forward also advised that the ministry should function like other ministries in the Nigerian government with budgets rather than inaccessible loans.
“We need a ministry of entertainment where we can say if you have any problem go there and report, where the entertainment industry will be having budget every year just like education, security, agriculture,” Iheme said.
“We need a budget for entertainment, we need a budget for the creative industry whereby the creative industry will be able to have their own budget every year that they can use to do whatever they want to do.”
