From Providing Resources to Starring in the Movie…Here’s how Governor of Bauchi State is supporting #UpNorthTheFilm & It’s so Encouraging!



The Governor of Bauchi State, Mohammed Abdullahi Abubakar, is an avid supporter of Nollywood and we’ve got proof!

In a thread on twitter, CEO of Anakle Films, Editi Effiòng, explains his encounter with the Governor before and during the making of his latest project ‘Up North‘.

According to him, in 2017 when he was returning from Bauchi, he met the governor on the plane and told him about a film he had intentions of shooting in Bauchi.

Over the past few weeks of shooting the movie, the Governor followed up with him before filming began, gave him everything he needed to make work easier; from officers, to an emir, to his personal convoy and more.

The top it all off, the Governor also auditioned to feature in the film, his reason? – “If I am in a film, it will set an example and encourage the young people who want to go into film as a career”

It’s very encouraging to know that the Governor knows and fully understands the power of Nollywood and how it can revolutionize tourism in Bauchi State.
