Some entertainers , under the umbrella of the Creative Industry Group , have endorsed the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party , Atiku Abubakar , and the party ’ s Lagos State governorship candidate , Jimi Agbaje .
The convener of the group , Felix Duke, told our correspondent that after a thorough assessment of the presidential candidates and their plans for the creative industry , they concluded that Atiku would provide the best solutions to the challenges facing the creative sector.
He said , “ We appeal to our colleagues in the music , film , literary and fashion industries to vote for Alhaji Atiku Abubakar .
For many years, the creative sector has been ignored by past governments but the sector remains the number one job provider for youths of the country. ”
Also , a veteran filmmaker , Zeb Ejiro , said he felt the industry should support Atiku when he signified his interest in ruling Nigeria .
He said , “ Nollywood used to be the second most productive industry in the world but things have changed now . If Buhari rules the country for another four years, the industry will vanish. ”
He also said Jimi Agbaje was the right person for the creative industry and to govern Lagos State.
Other members of the group include Paul Play Dairo , Ruggedman, Emeka Ossai , Chico Ejiro , Righteous Man .
