Atiku also stated that his policy objective will be focused on demonstrating the potential of the entertainment and creative industry in Nigeria including the promotion of Nollywood and Kannywood.

The policy document further states that this is to contribute to economic growth and job creation, as well as providing a road map for the sector’s development.
