Sen. Suleiman Adokwe, Chairman Senate Committee on Information and National Orientation, says the National Assembly will soon amend the act establishing the National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB).
Adokwe stated this on Tuesday while delivering his goodwill message at the opening of the Consumer Forum of the NFVCB holding in Bauchi State. He said that the amendment will further strengthen and reposition the board.
The forum with the theme: “The Movie Industry: The case for Peace, Economic Development and Social Engineering”, is holding at the Yankari Games Reserve from Jan. 29 to Feb 1.
According to Adokwe, the NFVCB is a critical agency of government that should be strengthened for it to effectively handle modern realities and challenges in the evolving Nigerian motion picture industry. “The Senate will give all necessary backing and strengthen the act establishing the NFVCB for it to be more effective in delivering on its mandate.
