JOIN FORCES WITH HOLLYWOOD AND BOLLYWOOD NOW

... HON. FEMI GBAJABIAMILA TELLS NOLLYWOOD, AS HE CUTS TAPE TO NEW DGN SECRETARIAT


The House of Representatives Majority Leader, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila has told Nollywood that it is time to go to the next level.

Gbajabiamila gave the advice at the official opening of the Director's Guild of Nigeria's new Secretariat at Olufemi street in Surulere, Lagos.

For Gbajabiamila, it was a homecoming being a Surulere born and bred. And on hand to receive him was the President of the Director's Guild of Nigeria, Mr Fred Amata, members of DGN exco, and other members of the film industry in Nigeria.


At the event which started 2pm Friday, the Reps House Leader recalled his growing up days in Surulere. He said, "in those days Surulere was a big centre for entertainment and the creative arts. A lot of people have come out of Surulere, and gone ahead to make it to the top in different spheres of human endeavours. I am proud that Surulere has continued to create such a hub for the movie industry today, and I urge that you all move to the next level which I believe is for you to raise the stake and collaborate with Hollywood and Bollywood and grow from strength to strength.


Gbajabiamila promised DGN that he and his colleagues in the House will look into ways of creating enabling laws to help the movie industry to grow further."


Also speaking at the event, Lagos SrSta Lawmaker Hon. Desmond Elliot who also is a Surulere born and bred, said that he is happy that DGN has opened a new Secretariat. He added that while Governor Ambode has successfully driven tourism to the state, it is now expected that the incoming governor of Lagos should be able to zero development down to the movie and entertainment industry.


On his part, the President of the Director's Guild of Nigeria, Mr. Fred Amata said that, "the new secreSecret is the beginning of our bigger dream."
