Nollywood?actor, Bob-Manuel Udokwu, says the All Progressives Grand Alliance is already celebrating the possible victory of Willie Obiano at yesterday?s Anambra State governorship election.
Udokwu said in Awka, after voting, that the celebration became necessary because most?Nollywood?actors hail from the state and most of them cast their votes for Obiano.

He added most of them saw the need for continuity and cast their votes for the APGA candidate.

He dismissed fears that?Nollywood?stars from the state voted for other candidates at the last minute, having honoured their invitations for parleys just before the election.
?Some people play to the gallery, and some people answer calls for inducements. If that was the case, then it does not imply that most of them decided to change their minds at the eleventh hour,? said Udokwu.
He asked, ?Do any of them (the other candidates) plan for the industry? I don?t think so. Otherwise, why didn?t they invite them (Nollywood?practitioners) for the dinners before now??
?For them to have invited them for dinners hurriedly organised, it shows the desperation. They just want to be seen taking pictures with my colleagues ? the Nollywood stars.
?Every one of us is wise, it would not pay to vote against APGA government that has strived to ensure the growth of the industry.?
Udokwu said continuity was what was needed in Anamnbra State.
He said, ?Willie Obiano is just the best man to succeed Governor Peter Obi. He has a distinguished career in money management; he knows what is best for Anambra.
?He had worked with Governor Obi for over 10 years in the banking industry. He surely knows how best to consolidate on the existing programmes and projects.?
He added, ?I tell my colleagues that it is not all about inducements, but about collective growth.
?Those who were inviting actors for dinners whenever they wanted something in the past were only interested in self actualisation, not collective growth.?
??As the Senior Special Assistant to Governor Obi on Creative Media, I have submitted proposals on how we can fast-track the growth of the industry and the government is already working on that.?
