Ali Nuhu, the director of the Nigerian Film Corporation and a prominent actor, has emphasized the crucial role that quality filmmaking can play in restoring Nigeria’s integrity on the global stage. In a recent interview with BBC Hausa, Nuhu highlighted the current state of Nigerian films, expressing his concern that only 30-35% meet the desired quality standard, while the target should be at least 70 to 75%.

Addressing the issue, Nuhu stated, “If you look at the films we produce in Nigeria’s film industry, you would see that only 30-35% meet desired quality as against 70-75%. So I will focus on this by making sure we are more educated and the provisions of quality equipment.
