Recall that weeks back,we served you a report on how top Nollywood stakeholders gathered at Eko Hotel and Suites,Victoria Island,Lagos state on December 30,2011 to partake from the “Ghana-must-go” load of Naira notes remitted to the industry by President Goodluck Jonathan to help encourage the actors to support the fuel subsidy removal.
On that day,each Nollywood personality who received text messages from the organizing committee and had their names on the long list of members that got N200,000)(Two Hundred Thousand Naira) as their share.But it seemed that cash was not enough to get them campaigning for removal of subsidy,so on Sunday,January,9, 2012 these top film makers.including all the once upon a time actors streamed to the National Theatre,Iganmu Lagos to continue with the allocation of the millions forwarded to them by President Jonathan through his representative,this time,Information Minister,Labaran Maku.
As gathered by reliable sources,at late hours of Saturday and early hours of Sunday,test messages were circulated among these stakeholders and the numerous out of work actors to come out en mass to National Theatre for what they tagged,”Nollywood Communique on Fuel Subsidy Removal”.
These actors,including Chief Chika Okpala a.k.a Chief Zebrudaya who traveled all the way from Enugu State gathered to get their personal share from this National Cake.
It was yet another day of great merriment with food and drinks as everybody who received the test message went home with white envelops filled with N100 notes of N100,000(One hundred Thousand Naira).
According to our source,individuals who got the freebies at Eko Hotel few weeks back,equally stormed the National Theatre for more and indeed they went home with white envelopes too.
