Also, speaking in the same vein, Mr Emeka Rollas, National President of Actors Guild of Nigeria, said it’s high time the government put proper  structure in place for Nollywood to thrive in addition to backing it up with financial support. “We cannot leave it for only foreign investors or individuals. You can imagine over 20 years of Nollywood yet practitioners keep disturbing individuas houses for films locations instead of having  befitting film sets for productions. Government should take us more seriously as an industry that is contributing to the national GDP. They should stop commending Nollywood on the pages of newspapers and massaging our ego and as objects of image laundry and invest more in the industry as it’s doing  in other sectors of the economy,” AGN president stated.
