Please Resign, Segun Arinze Orders Censors Board Director General Over Half Of A Yellow Sun Movie.

Published

hoays-270x164A few weeks ago, the film adaptation of Chimamanda Adichie’s book Half of a Yellow Sun was to hit our cinema screens…but it was stopped. I heard the reason it was removed was because of the theme of the movie, the Hausa killing Ibo/biafra war story and because of the current situation in Nigeria, some scenes were asked to be cut from the movie by the Nigeria Film and Video Censors Board. I don’t know if the scenes have been cut or what exactly is going on right now, but NFVCB has still refused to let the movie show in the cinemas.

Actor and former Actors’ Guild of Nigeria president Segun Arinze is now calling for the resignation of the Director-General of the Censors Board. His statement below…

Please tell Madam Patricia Bala of Nigeria Film and Video Censors Board to release the movie Half of a Yellow Sun. She has no reason to hold on to the movie. She has no right to censor the movie only to classify it. She saw it in Canada and even partnered with the producers in Canada during the premiere. What she is doing now is an embarrassment to government and a big insult to our dear industry, Nollywood. We are not in a military regime. She should kindly resign’. – Segun Arinze

The Nigerian stock market could not sustain the bullish performance recorded earlier in the week as the market, Wednesday, plunged by 0.75 per cent following the curfew announced by the Lagos State as a result of the protest by Nigerian youths against police brutality, tagged #EndSARS.

Market analysts have expressed skepticism about bullish performance in subsequent trading sessions this week; even as investors position ahead of the third quarter, 2020 (Q3’20) earnings releases.

The analysts noted that foreign investors are always wary of insecurity in any economy and would begin to halt investments.

Analysts at InvestData Limited said: “We expect this volatility to continue, even as high Dividend Yields attract inflow to equity assets, ahead of the peak period of the Q3 earnings reporting season and momentum associated with earnings season in the midst of crude oil price oscillation.”

Meanwhile, investors on the Nigerian Stock Exchange, NSE, lost N113.1 billion as market capitalisation, which represents the total value of stocks traded on the Exchange fell to N14.9 trillion while Year to Date, YtD return weakened to 6.0 percent.

Sell pressures dominated today’s trading session as investors booked gains from MTN Nigeria which dropped -1.4 percent followed by Guinness Nigeria -5.9 percent and ARDOVA -6.3 percent.

As a result, the NSE All-Share Index, ASI declined 75 bases points, bps or 0.7 percent to 28,449.49 points.

Activity level improved as volume and value traded rose by 9.8 percent and 44.3 percent to 326.6million units and N4.2billion respectively. The most traded stocks by volume were UBA (40.3million units), Zenith Bank (39.6million units) and Guaranty Trust Bank (38.3million units) while Guaranty Trust Bank (N1.1billion ), Zenith Bank (N800.9million) and Nestle (N479.9million) led by value.

Performance across sectors was lacklustre as all indices lost except Insurance index (0.6 percent) which was buoyed by price appreciation in WAPIC (10.0 percent). The Banking index lost the most, down 1.7 percent following losses in Guaranty Trust (-1.3 percent) and Zenith Bank (-1.2 percent).
