FG reacts to death of veteran Nollywood movie producer, Ugboma


The Federal Government has expressed shock and sadness over the death of veteran movie producer, Eddie Ugboma.

In a statement to DAILY POST on Sunday by Segun Adeyemi, Special Assistant to the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, FG described the movie maker as a worthy pioneer of today’s burgeoning Nollywood industry.

Mohammed said the fact that Chief Ugboma lived a purposeful life and left his footprint in the sands of time is a soothing consolation for all who knew him.

‘In his lifetime, Chief Ugboma produced a number of avant-garde movies that blazed the trail and fired the imagination of those who would later become the top producers in today’s Nollywood. In a way, the success of the industry is a tribute to him and his co-pioneers,” the minister said.

He expressed the Federal Government’s condolences to family and friends of the late film maker and prayed that God will grant him eternal rest and comfort his family.
