Nollywood To Stop DSTV From Showing Nigerian Movies

Nigerian movie marketers under the aegis of Film, Video Producers and Marketers Association of Nigeria (FVPMAN)are putting plans together to stop Dstv Channel, African Magic and other pay TV stations from showing Nigerian movies. The movie marketers made this move known at a world press conference held Wednesday at the popular celebrity hangout, O’jez, Surulere, Lagos. According to them, starting from May 1, no movie that is capable of being released through their conventional distribution channel would be assigned to any broadcast station in the country. The movie merchants said they will formally write to DSTV and other pay TV stations operating in the country about their decision, stressing that the activities of these broadcast stations have not only reduced the purchase of Nollywood movies but also, have affected the entire business of movie making.

Five Reasons why Ngozi-Okonjo Iwuala Would Win The World Bank Presidency



The candidacy of an African woman, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, to lead the World Bank represents a historic opportunity to strengthen the organisation in its mission to attack global poverty. However, the fatalist view is that Okonjo-Iweala cannot win because she is not American. Fortunately, in this case idealism and power politics can align. Okonjo-Iweala can and should win, but it will take effort. Here is a five-stage scenario of how events could play out.

1) Say nice things about Jim Yong Kim

Given America's traditional stranglehold on the position, the US nominee cannot simply be dismissed. All countries will say very nice things about Kim, and rightly so. He is a terrific individual.

2) Don't rush to judge

Everyone regretted letting the Americans ram through their choice of Paul Wolfowitz in 2005. The damaging consequences of that fiasco are still fresh in people's minds. While Kim does his "listening tour", countries can pay heed but not commit openly. They can insist that the process be allowed to work before decisions are taken. In short, they can remain on the fence.

World Bank Presidency; How Much Do You Know Ngozi-Okonjo Iwuala


Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, PhD (born June 13, 1954) is a globally renowned Nigerian economist best known for her current role as Finance Minister of Nigeria and for her work at the World Bank, including several years as one of its Managing Directors (October 2007–July 2011). She also briefly held the position of Foreign Minister of Nigeria in 2006.
In 2007, Okonjo-Iweala was considered as a possible replacement for former World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz, and she is currently considered as one of the three candidates to replace World Bank President Robert Zoellick when he steps down in June 2012
