Nigerian actor and politician; Desmond Elliot has come under attack for urging the federal government to place a ban on foreign movies, in a bid to grow the Nollywood industry.

In an interview with HipTV, he said;

“The government needs to intentionally focus on building the industry. treat it like you’re importing rice. You ban all foreign content, make it difficult for foreign content to come in, so your local content can grow”.

In response to this, Twitter users have aired their opposing views, adding the quality of most Nollywood movies are not worth writing home about.
