Lai Mohammed said:

‘This government has agreed that henceforth, whatever we consume in Nigeria in terms of music and films, must be made in Nigeria”

“We cannot continue to go to South Africa or any other country to produce our films and then send them back to be consumed in Nigeria”

“The Broadcasting Code and the Advertising Code are very clear on this. For you to classify a product as a Nigerian product, it must have a certain percentage of Nigerian content.”
