Veteran Nollywood actor and broadcaster per excellence Patrick Doyle in a recent interview in The Nation expressed what he desires of the federal government as regards addressing the terrorist attacks on Nigerians in Nigeria.
He believes it is the responsibility of the government to sensitize the citizenry about being security conscious. He said, “During the Nigerian civil war, we were educated on radio and television on security measures; things like how and where to hide during air raids and such like. Unfortunately, today, we face the menace of Boko Haram, kidnapping, and so on, yet the government has not deemed it fit to articulate a policy, and craft educative and entertaining programs to educate our people on security measures to safeguard individuals, families, and organizations on things like, How to identify a suicide bomber, Security consciousness tips for children to mention just a few.“
Nollywood has got a voice in Doyle that sounds objective and honest enough to give the government ideas to enhance the fight against this dastardly act. Let’s just hope they’d be humble enough to take the it.
