Lagos lawmaker, Desmond Elliot has said that the Federal government needs to boycott the importation of outside films so that Nollywood can develop.
As he would like to think the actor cum government official accepts that the importation of foreign contents into the nation is constraining the development of the local contents.

Nigerians anyway accept his proposition does not have a solid thinking behind it as the partners in the Nigerian motion picture industry could also step up their game to contend with the foreign contents.
“He lost me at “ban all foreign content”.. Coca-Cola does not need to compete with Pepsi, there’s enough sun for everyone.. Work on your brand and grow and support it” a social media user wrote
In his very own response, a man distinguished as Bishi expressed that it won’t be reasonable restricting foreign contents in the nation and looked to realize what will befall Nigerian contents universally if same boycott is allotted on them.
“If they ban Nigerian Contents in other countries too how will Nollywood Grow internationally” he asked
While responding to Desmond Elliot, Mr. Henry referenced that there is no local content in Nigeria as the contents pass the wrong messages to the group of spectators.
“Which stuipid local content , the local content that made everyone thinking there is a relationship between blood and money all they do in Nigeria movie is rituals na dem cause this problem wey we get today.” he posted
