“When we have this commission, nobody will start taking things into their own hands. But this doesn’t exist now in this country and I am assuring you that the Senate of the 10th assembly, in collaboration with the minister for creative economy, will come up with a commission called creative economy commission,” he announced.
According to him, “The Senate just passed a bill and it has scaled third reading. We have also done a public hearing about setting up a fund for victims of such incidences where the families can benefit like the EndSARS victims and other victims of violence.
“The FG is interested in setting up the fund. The creative industry is a very big one. It is a multi-billion economy and I am sure the current administration will ensure that the sector has a conducive atmosphere.”
