GEJ before another *You Win* Kalo Kalo! Let us ask the little question of $200 Million ‘donated’ to Nollywood
Now that GEJ is coming up with another project tagged *YouWin’ under the guise of “setting out funds” for some “selected “ talented” Nigerian youths to access after submitting proposals we humbly ask Mr President and some of the artists in Nollywood, what happened to the $200 Million GEJ donation? How many Nollywood artists are able to access the fund? How many film village or post production units earmarked? it is our right to know!
Millions of Naira Budgeted for *YOUWIN* Scheme to be monitored by an unknown committee of wise Nigerians.
*New GEJ employment scheme is targeted at owners of existing formal and informal businesses who will be asked to submit their business plans for a competition. These will be evaluated by a panel of experts and the best submissions from each geopolitical zone will be selected for support & then create between 80,000 to 110,000 sustainable jobs over the next 4 year
