He said, “The industry is capable of generating millions of naira in revenue if well-founded.”
“The industry has lots of prospects and potential that can be used to boost its revenue. The opportunities in the industry can fetch government huge revenues.”
According to the report, Kosoko also called on well-meaning individuals to support the film industry and intensify the fight against piracy which he believes is drawing the industry back.
