Minister insists on reforming creative industry
The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed said despite criticisms, his ministry remains committed to making the creative industry a viable sector of the economy.
The minister expressed optimism that the newly-inaugurated AntiPiracy Committee will stamp out theft of intellectual property that has become rampant in the country.
He stated this yesterday, when he received the Music Producers and Marketers Association of Nigeria (MUPMAN) on a courtesy call, a statement by his assistant Segun Adeyemi said.
In his remarks, National President of the association, Mr Sharon Essco-Joshua, said the forthcoming Nigerian Music Stakeholders Awards being organized by the association, aims at recognizing major stakeholders in the industry with a view to encouraging them to strive for excellence.
