Every Local Council in Nigeria Should Have A Cinema - Ladi Ladebo




Every local council should be encouraged to construct a village/town/city center which should include at least a cinema hall depending on the size of the village and or town and city. Every local government chairman is busy building markets stalls as a revenue generating project for the council. Fine! There is also money to be made from properties that can be hired out to citizens for weddings, funerals, and other celebrations with a modern approach. Such can be achieved within a short period. That will give us some seven hundred and seventy potential outlets for films, well spread out to be accessible to all Nigerian citizens

~ Ladi Ladebo from FOR A VIABLE CINEMA INDUSTRY IN NIGERIA.
