The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, said the Federal Government would ensure that Nollywood actors get a fair deal from their trade.
Mustapha stated this at the grand finale of a stage play titled “Agbarho The Musical”, produced by 30-year-old Patrick Otoro, on Saturday in Abuja.
He said the proprietary rights of Nollywood actors needed to be protected by the government so that they can derive maximum return from their artistic endeavors.
“One of the things that the government has to do is to make sure that their rights are protected because that is why they lose a lot of money. There are a lot of leakages in the process in terms of people pirating their products,” he said.
