Lai Mohammed Has Refuted Claims That He Said He Planned To Ban The Production Of Nigerian Movies And Videos Overseas.

Mohammed said this at the Creative Industry Financing Conference held at Eko Hotels with the theme ‘Financing the Film, Television and Music Industries.’ He said this as a reaction to the criticism trailing the reported statement. He claimed he never said all music and films would or must be produced in Nigeria.

He said:

At COSON, I said that I would work to amend the National Broadcasting Commission’s code to ensure that if a product is designated a Nigerian product, it must be produced in Nigeria. I didn’t say that, henceforth, all music and films would or must be produced in Nigeria.

All I said was that if a programme is designated as a Nigerian content programme, we will amend the code to ensure that it is produced in Nigeria. I didn’t say I’ll ban the production of Nigerian movies and videos overseas.
