Nollywood actress, Ini Edo, have finally expressed her lack of regret for campaigning for corrupt ex-president Goodluck Jonathan. Ini Edo in this interview on Rubbin Minds - says she does not regret campaigning for GEJ because he had interest in a lot of things that she does, in connection with Nollywood and the entertainment industry. So far there have been no concrete evidence GEJ did anything for Nollywood, except the bribing of Nollywood practitioners to campaign for him.
You will recall that Nigeria's Bank of Industry (BoI) has debunked reports, that it received $200 million Entertainment/Nollywood Fund for the development of Nigeria’s entertainment industry from the immediate past administration of President Goodluck Jonathan. In a statement it issued yesterday, the bank refuted the media report, clarifying that the bank never received such money.
According to the Bank of Industry: “The attention of the bank has been drawn to a news report titled “Probe Jonathan’s $200 million Nollywood Fund, Lari Williams tells Buhari” wherein Mr. Lari alluded to the domiciliation of $200 million with the Bank of Industry Limited for eventual disbursement to artists who are able to come up with viable business plans.”
“BOI would like to state for the records that it is not managing any $200 million Entertainment/Nollywood Fund and at no time did the bank receive any such fund from the government for the Entertainment/Nollywood sector.”
“This publication became necessary as some practitioners in the creative industry believe that BOI is in receipt of $200 million Entertainment/Nollywood Fund.”
