The Director General of the Kano State Censorship Board, Malam Isma’il Na’abba Afakallah, said Friday that plans are on to resuscitate cinemas and viewing centres to ensure that practitioners make more money and check the activities of piracy in the industry.
Afakallah said this during the inauguration of a preview committee that will ensure conformity to laid down regulations. According to the Director General, the board has already sampled and registered about 200 cinemas and viewing centres.
“Kano State is the center of the Hausa film making industry and we are ready to ensure that practitioners maximize profit without violating the law. Already, we have successfully established liaison offices in all the 44 local governments of the state. We will showcase the movies at the cinemas before taking them to the market,” he said.
