One of the foremost associations in the Nigerian motion picture industry popularly called Nollywood, the Association of Nollywood Core Producers, ANCOP, has resolved to frontally attack the menace of piracy and at the same time promote the general welfare of stakeholders in the industry irrespective of associations or guilds affiliations.

This hint was dropped by the newly elected president of ANCOP, Eze Harris Chuma, during his acceptance speech shortly after the general elections of the National Executive Committee, NEC, members of ANCOP and the official handover ceremony to him by the immediate past president of the body, Comrade Alex Eyengho, on Monday, May 30, 2016 at the Rita Lori Hotels, Surulere, Lagos.

Eze Chuma promised that he would use his office for the propagation and promotion of good moral values and ensure that Nollywood is free from corruption and ineptitude, even as he thanked his predecessor in office, Comrade Eyengho for taking ANCOP to an enviable height.

“I humbly call on other recognized guilds and associations in Nollywood to join hands with ANCOP in our absolute resolve to take the Nigerian movie industry to greater heights. Let’s come together to work for the growth and survival of our darling film industry. Together, we shall overcome our challenges. Together, we shall achieve more,” Eze Chuma appealed.
