Ali Nuhu, the director of the Nigerian Film Corporation and a prominent actor, emphasized the pivotal role of quality in Nigerian filmmaking in revitalizing the country’s integrity. In a recent interview with BBC Hausa, he highlighted that presently, only 35% of Nigerian films meet the desired quality standard, while the target should be between 70 to 75%.
“If you look at the films we produce in Nigeria’s film industry, you would see that only 30-35 per cent meet desired quality as against 70-75 per cent.
“So I will focus on this by making sure we are more educated and the provisions of quality equipment.
“We have ambition of transforming the industry into one of the world best because we don’t need quantity, what we need most is quality over quantity.”
“Some bad eggs among the industry have given Nigeria a bad name, so through these films, we will restore our integrity,” he added.
