FG did not ban production of films and music abroad - Lai Mohammed

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has denied claims that the Federal Government will ban Nigerian movies and music production outside the country.

Mr. Mohammed made this known on Tuesday evening during his visit to headquarters of the Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON) in Lagos.

He said, "At COSON, I said that I would work to amend the National Broadcasting Commission's code to ensure that if a product is designated a Nigerian product, it must be produced in Nigeria. I didn't say that henceforth, all films would or must be produced in Nigeria".

"All I say was that if a programme is designated as a Nigerian content programme, we will amend the code to ensure that it is produced in Nigeria. I didn't say I'll ban the production of Nigerian movies and videos oversea".

Many artistes have reacted to the earlier claims that the Federal Government will ban the production of music and movies abroad, one which is Peter Okoye of the Psquare who blast the Federal Government on Instagram and was called to be arrested by a youth group for insulting the Federal Government.
