Nigerians however believe his proposal does not have a strong reasoning behind it as the stakeholders in the Nigerian movie industry could as well step-up their games to compete with the foreign contents.

“He lost me at “ban all foreign content”.. Coca-Cola does not need to compete with pepsi, there’s enough sun for everyone.. Work on your brand and grow and support it” a social media user wrote

In his own reaction, a man identified as Bishi stated that it won’t be fair banning foreign contents in the country and sought to know what will happen to Nigerian contents internationally if same ban is meted on them.

“If they ban Nigerian Contents in other countries too how will Nollywood Grow internationally” he asked

While reacting to Desmond Elliot, Mr. Henry mentioned that there is no local content in Nigeria as the contents pass the wrong messages to the audience

“Which stuipid local content , the local content that made everyone thinking there is a relationship between blood and money all they do in Nigeria movie is rituals na dem cause this problem wey we get today.” he posted
