The eloquent actress while accepting the new appointment, said, she would be building a movie studio in the school from scratch. Saddled with the responsibility of training people who love acting profession, she has since started work.

“I would be building a movie studio from scratch and making it viable. More importantly, it is supposed to be an underpinning for Nollywood where the skills that are necessary to sustain Nollywood will be taught. It is to train those who have decided to take a profession in the film industry and the various skills that are involved in the industry’.
