In a recent meeting between the Delta State Commissioner for Culture and Tourism, Dr Darlington Nnamdi Ijeh, and the members of the Sheriffied Nollywood Movement, a promise of unwavering support for Nollywood practitioners was made.

He reassured the gathering that the Governor would continue to provide the necessary resources and infrastructure to enhance the film industry’s development in the state.

During the courtesy visit, Hon Sam Ukala, the coordinator of the Sheriffied Nollywood Movement, commended the Governor’s efforts in prioritizing the utilization of the Asaba film village and emphasized the importance of continued support from the Sheriffied Nollywood Movement.

Hon Ukala conveyed their congratulations to Governor Oborevwori on completing one year in office and pledged their unwavering support and solidarity to his administration.
