The executives of the Lagos State Chapter of the Creative Designers Guild of Nigeria (CDGN) has returned unopposed during its elections, which held recently at its Secretariat located in Surulere, Lagos.
The guild's chairman, Joy Osawaru Akinyemi, said that the guild is eager to make a positive impact in Nollywood.
According to her, she will be working with other members of the executive, to ensure that "quacks" are cut out of the movie industry.
This action is essential to taking Nollywood to the next level in meeting and surpassing international standards.
“We will make it our duty to make sure that quality make-up and the right costumes are applied to produce quality movies. We have a place as far as creativity is concerned in Nigeria, and if we want to see a positive change in Nollywood, we have to sit up and work hard,” she said.
Leo Omosebi, the spokesman of CDGN, asserted that the guild has been able to affect Nollywood positively by helping producers make quality movies.
He said, ‘’When people give credit to moviemakers, they forget to also give credit to us. We are the creative power-house of the movie industry in Nigeria, and a lot of these popular celebrities you know can’t produce movies or musical videos without our expertise.”
The list of all those who returned unopposed includes;
Ikechukwu Godwin Chibuko as Vice-Chairman,
Blessing Awuzi as Financial Secretary,
Thelma Fiberesima as Provost,
Salome Oputa as Treasurer,
