Veteran actor and filmmaker, Adebayo Salami aka Oga Bello has heaped praises on Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu after the presentation of a N200million loan to 37 filmmakers.

Speaking after the presentation of cheques, Oga Bello, who spoke on behalf of his colleagues praised the Sanwo-Olu-led government while assuring that the funds will be well utilised and pay back without defaulting.

Represented by the Commissioner for Tourism, Arts and Culture, Uzamat Akinbile-Yusuf during the presentation of cheques to the 37 beneficiaries of the special interest-free loan to filmmakers at the Glover Memorial Hall, Lagos, Sanwo-Olu said the initiative aims to address financial challenges that inhibit quality film production in Lagos and Nigeria.

In his words, “this Initiative and presentation of cheques being done today is a testament to our commitment to ensure the potentials of the entertainment industry are realized.

“I congratulate the beneficiaries of this Initiative who are receiving their cheques. I am without doubt that your proposals and plans must have been really compelling and convincing to the committee.”

Sanwo-Olu admonished the beneficiaries to make judicious use of the loan and payback at the stipulated time to enable others to be empowered also.

Another beneficiary, Tunji Ojetola, who gave his testimonial at the presentation, said the exercise was devoid of favoritism and that the application process is seamless and the screening was thorough and professional.
