The lawmaker representing Bayelsa East in the upper chamber of the National Assembly, Senator Ben Murray Bruce has advised the Federal Government to invest in the Nigerian movie industry, Nollywood, for  economic growth of the country.

According to him,  the amount of money made by movies like Avengers; Endgame and Black Panther justifies his advocacy with the former President Goodluck Jonathan which made him invest billions in the entertainment industry.

In a statement which he released via his Twitter handle, he said that Nollywood can yield more money for the country than oil without damaging the environment.

His words; “The over $1 billion made by movies like Avengers: Endgame and Black Panther justify my advocacy with ex President @GEJonathan which made him invest billions in our entertainment industry. The Nollywood can bring in more money than oil brings, without damaging our environment.”
