 THE Delta State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) gu­bernatorial candidate for 2023 general electionsand Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Sheriff Oborevwori, has promised to pay close and sustained atten­tion to the development of the Nigerian creative industry and welfare of the practitioners if elected the next governor of the state.

At a Town Hall Meeting with members of the Delta State Creative Industry, on Thursday, in Asaba, Rt Hon Oborevwori, who is also the National Deputy Chairman of the Confer­ence of Speakers of State Legislatures of Nigeria, said that he would inspire members of the creative industry with his M.O.R.E Agenda through incentives and the continuous enabling environment to promote their skills and talents.

"While you perform your noble creative duties of providing entertainment and education to the society, my administra­tion by the grace of God, will assist you to create wealth and self fulfilment towards enhancing your destinies. Also, I will ensure the provision of jobs and opportunities to discover more talents and hone their skills", he stated.

"Today, we are all familiar with the exploits and impacts of Deltans in the fields of movies, music, comedy and related performing Arts. Whether by human endowments and tour­ism potentials, our dear state is easy to pride itself among the 36 states of Nigeria as the unbeatable entertainment hub. We have a very long list of Delta- born actors, musi­cians, comedians and other creative industry practitioners in Nigeria. In fact, we will not leave here today if I begin to mention their names one by one.The population is huge and everywhere. Hence the popular saying among our people "Delta nor dey carry last " A befitting recognition and tribute to the leading role of the state in the entertainment and tourism sector in Africa's largest nation", the Gubernatorial Candidate said.

He also said that; "The creative endeavour including the film industry popularly called Nollywood has brought so much pride and glory to the nation in local and international circles. It is a fact that Nollywood for instance ranks second to America ‘s Hollywood and ahead of Indian Bollywood in the global film industry. It is one of the biggest non-oil sectors of the economy with annual revenue estimated at about $7 billion dollars according to statistics by the International Monetary Funds, IMF . Your individual and collective con­tributions to the socio- economic development of the nation and Delta in particular are truly worthy of commendation".
