Ali Nuhu has justified the recent ban on actress Rahama Sadau, stating that the ban is logical as she violated the codes and ethics of Kannywood.
Speaking to Daily Trust Saturday, He said "I think that the ban is logical. She belongs to Kannywood, started her career in Kannywood and has violated the ethics and code of conduct of Kannywood by holding hands and falling on the guy’s back."
He however stated that the ban is on the extreme as a lesser punishment would have sufficed. " But I don’t think she should be banned. Maybe a suspension. There are situations where people create big things out of small ones. That is why before deciding to do something, one needs to think."
He advised the censoring body in future to take caution before reaching a decision.
" I would advise that in future when things like this happen, they deliberate amongst themselves and maybe call in a few others in the industry before making it public. People do things in an organization and are suspended or given queries. But these organizations won’t go to the media to announce it. It was blown out of proportion," Ali explained.
Responding to social media critics who feel the ban was selective Ali Nuhu said "About photographs of me in scenes with females, those are from Nollywood movies, many years old, and this code came into light recently, so people shouldn’t think MOPPAN is being selective."
