He said this was important because of the current state of the country and preparations towards the general election in 2019.

One of the strong messages is that individuals should believe that they can contribute towards positive change using one power which means individuals have that single power with which they can make that change positively for the society, for themselves and for the people close to them," Kosoko told Pulse.

'Power of 1' stars Ramsey Nouah, Alex Ekubo, Annie Idibia, Jibola Dabo, Jide Kosoko, Racheal Oniga, Michelle Dede, Padita Agu and many more.

The movie is scheduled to start showing in cinemas across Nigeria from December 7, 2018.
