Lagos lawmaker and Nollywood icon, Desmond Elliot has come under heavy attack from Nigerians on Twitter over his statement on how the government can grow Nigeria’s Nollywood.

Naija News understands Elliot submitted that Government has to ban the importation of foreign movies so that Nollywood can grow as well as make it difficult for foreign content to come in, so local content can grow.

This he said in a recent interview where he said the government should ban foreign movies just as it banned rice importation.

However, his submission has not gone down well with Nigerians who disagreed with the lawmaker and took to Twitter to air their views.

Hon Desmond Elliot would have made more sense advocating for strengthening copyright laws rather than proposing a ban on foreign movies.

But what do I know when I no be Nigerian ‘honourable’.

Desmond Elliot, nollywood problem is not foreign movies.
Nollywood problem is:

Predictable storyline
Poor directing
Poor funding of movies
