Sanwo-Olu Launches Healthcare Plan For Veteran Nollywood Actors
Eniola Badmus revealed information about the special meeting between movie legends and the governor of Lagos state.
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
The health insurance programme was introduced on October 11, 2022, by Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to address the requirements of Nollywood veterans. This was accomplished during a discussion on the development of the sector that the Governor held with Nollywood filmmakers.
When Nollywood actress Eniola Badmus posted a photo of herself with the governor on Instagram with the description “an essential highlight of the meeting,” the public first learned about this development.
“The Governor of Lagos state @jidesanwoolu hosted Nollywood Filmmakers to a dinner last night which was quite interesting and he also used the the opportunity to institute a health insurance scheme for veterans to ensure they are well covered for adequate medical care which will assist to access health care in public health facilities……Thank you so much my Governor this is so huge in our sight and we are grateful for this opportunity” she wrote.
This plan aims to address one of the main problems facing performers in the film business.
You might recall that in recent years, Nollywood stars who were struggling financially or had health problems came to social media to ask Nigerians for assistance.
