Elliot made this suggestion or provoking demand as it appears to be during an interview with Nigerian cable television channel, HipTV.

The Nollywood star, who is also a lawmaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, wants the government to be intentional about Nollywood as a film industry and handle it “like you’re importing rice” by placing a ban on foreign content.

Quoting him, he said:

First they need to create an enabling environment for this industry to thrive. Secondly, they need to consciously, intentionally focus on building the industry. Treat it like you’re importing rice. Okay, you know, so you ban all foreign content. You know, make it difficult for foreign content to come in, so your local content can grow.”

Nigerians are not taking this suggestion funny on social media platforms especially on twitter as many comments have been posted replying to this demand.

Here are some of the funniest Twitter reactions to Desmond Elliot’s demands:
