The leading governorship aspirant for the November 6 election under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Uche Ekwunife has drummed support for indigenous artists, saying that the entertainment and creative arts industry is a veritable sector for economic development.
Ekwunife made this call on Wednesday, March 10, 2021, at an occasion in Obosi attended by a popular musician, Mr. Chinedu Izuchukwu Okoli popularly known as Flavour. She stated that the industry has enough talents that need to be groomed and supported to maximize their potentials.
Ekwunife, while recognizing the impacts which the entertainment and creative arts industry have made on the national and international fronts, called on the government, corporate bodies, and well-meaning Nigerians to show greater commitment to the growth of the industry.
The federal lawmaker used the opportunity to urge Nigerian youths to shun destructive ventures such as cyber crimes, thuggery, illicit drugs and other social vices which could put them in conflict with the law. She admonished them to support politicians who are passionate about the socio-economic development of the youths. Ekwunife noted that if given the mandate to serve the state, her government will massively invest in human capital development.
Senator Ekwunife made a passionate appeal to the big players in the entertainment and creative arts industry to make themselves more accessible and offer their experience and resources in mentoring and nurturing the upcoming talents so as to build a network of opportunities for youths who are intrinsically inclined to the creative arts profession.
Concluding, Senator Ekwunife wished Mr Flavour all the best in his career. She urged him to remain a good ambassador of Anambra state and Nigeria at large.
