“You promote our culture and that is why Edem Duke has always been passionate about you. You even bring value reorientation which I appreciate so much in some of the films you act and some of the music you play. So, you are much more than entertainers to people who want to relax but you are also changing the psyche of the youths.

He said government would continue to encourage film production through provision of funds and other forms of support. Jonathan also reaffirmed the Federal Government’s commitment to moving the country from the vagaries of crude oil to a knowledge-based one. He cited Switzerland and Japan, which he said, had little or no natural resources but run stable economies.
