Happy New Year Guys,
We hope Y’all enjoyed the holidays!
We were looking through 2019 movie trailers and came across “4th republic the movie” which is Produced by Bem Pever, written by Zainab Omaki, Emil B. Garuba and directed by our very own Ishaya Bako who was the winner of our 2017 documentary category for his documentary Silent Tears.
4th Republic highlights the challenges a strong woman (Mabel), played by Kate Henshaw faces as she seeks to attain a seat of Government in Nigeria to foster justice and democracy and basically change the political scene in Nigeria positively, The movie also shows how difficult it is for women to hold high offices in government.
We did some research and found that about 50% of the population in Nigeria is female yet only about 6% of Federal legislative positions are occupied by women and more interesting is the fact that in the history of Nigeria no Female has ever held a Gubernatorial position.
The movie is star studded with the likes of Kate Henshaw, Linda Ejiofor, Bimbo Manuel and many more. 4th republic would soon grace our screens and it’s definitely one you should watch out for!!! We would keep you posted on the release date. See trailer here
