MOPPAN, censorship board differ on Rahama Sadau ban

The leadership of Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria (MOPPAN) Kano state chapter has disagreed with the decision of state censorship board over the fate of the Kannywood actress, Rahama Sadau back into the indigenous Hausa movie industry.

The board, through its executive director Isma’ila Na’abba Afakalla had last week declared willingness to censor Rahama Sadau’s films in what many perceived as a move towards recalling the ace actress into the industry after her ban about two years ago by MOPPAN.

Speaking on a BBC Hausa service on Monday, MOPPAN chairman, Alhaji Kabiru Maikaba said Afakalla does not have authority to forgive the actress since it was not the censorship board that banned her.

He however disclosed that MOPPAN will sit with the actress as soon as she returns from Cyprus to determine the next action to be taken before the ban could be lifted.
