Use movies to tackle modern day slavery, FG urges Nollywood

Federal Government has urged the Nigerian movie industry, (Nollywood), to make movies that expose the stigma and hazards associated with human trafficking, irregular migration, prostitution, and forced labor.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, made the plea in Abuja at a ceremony to commemorate the International Day for the Remembrance of Slave Trade and its Abolition.

Themed, “My Hands, My Freedom: A Roadmap to Containing Irregular Migration,’’ was organised by the Ministry of Information and Culture, its parastatal agencies, UNESCO and other stakeholders.

Represented by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, Grace Gekpe, the minister mandated the National Films and Video Censors Board to encourage artistes to include in their works the message on the dangers associated with the modern-day slavery.
