Ruth Kadiri says, I will not be pressured. I will keep working hard. Thanks for overlooking me Lagos State government, Mo-Abudu, Ijeoma obioha-onah and Nigeria International film summit and congrats to everyone who got recognized. The film industry is controlled by women, so if you’re going to do it, do it right or don’t do it at all!
She also went further to affirm, that she's a film maker,a woman, a hard-working one at that. Faced with struggles like every other filmmaker.
Did my name pop up? yes.
But was omitted on purpose! Simply because I refused to join their sect or click.
Annieidibia was quick to console her. In her words and I quote" Strength! We see you sister,you can't be ignored.keep doing the incredible amazing job you are doing.May the universe continue to be in your favor.You are a Star!.
Well, we all know she can survive with or without the award but Mo- abudu , Lagos State Government and Nigeria international films summit should let the public know on the criteria they used in this honorary award that made them to ignore certain women whom Nigerians as a whole was expecting.
