Filmmakers To Shoot Movies On Trains For Free – Minister Of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi (Updated: 7 months ago)


Rotimi Amaechi, the Minister of Transportation, has approved for film producers to shoot movies inside the train at zero cost to showcase the country's infrastructure.

Amaechi gave the advice in Abuja, while receiving the Chief Executive of Native Media, Mr Rogers Ofime and his crew members on a thank you visit.

The minister reiterated his resolve to always support movie makers when they needed train service for their shootings.

Amaechi pledged support for the shooting of ‘Conversations in Transit’, a contemporary gritty romantic comedy and other movies.

The minister said that this would promote the good image of the country.

According to him, approving train service for the shooting of the film was to show the world the exceptional infrastructure development going on under the regime of President Muhammadu Buhari.

He said, “We have to do this because what the president is doing in infrastructure should be shown to the world.

“The president has improved on infrastructure and railway is one of them. We have to grant them that approval of using the train. So that the world we know that we are delivering on our campaign promises.”

The minister said that approving the train services for movie producers to use for shooting at no cost was the government contribution to boost the sector.

Amaechi added, “We will continue to improve our infrastructure to make the society grow. Road and railway deal with issue of logistics, even if you manufacture you need better infrastructure.

“The film project is a beautiful idea; it will engage the people meaningfully, provide entertainment and grow the economy.

“We are happy they are doing it and that is why we will be willing to always grant them approval of the train anytime they wish to use it.

“Film makers should improve on what they are doing. The quality of anything you are doing is essential. They have continued to grow with time.

“Improving to become world best is not rocket science. They can be the best in the world with much commitment,
” he said.
