Nollywood star actress and producer, Shan George has urged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to probe the $200m donation made by former president Goodluck Jonathan’s government for the development of the Nigerian movie industry.
Her call is as a result of the statement of the Bank Of Industry that it didn’t get any money from the Jonathan administration for Nollywood. You will recall that legendary actor Larry Williams had also recently asked President Muhammadu Buhari to probe the aforementioned fund.
Shan feels a probe is necessary as she believes that the money has been embezzled and EFFC should look into it and bring perpetrators to book. She said to Daily Post, “I’m using this fine morning to ask this fine question. Who ate the money ex-president Jonathan gave to Nollywood? EFCC please probe this.”
Maybe after the EFFC swings into action we will find out what actually happened to Nollywood money.
