Nollywood actress, Ajisola, who is passionate about the younger generation, especially the underprivileged, has commenced work on the new movie entitled: “Road To Ruin” which tends to address the plight of the banned hawkers who are now finding it difficult to survive since the Lagos State government had placed ban on street hawking.
The development which came as a result of the rampant cases of crimes and traffic congestion which has aided robbery, kidnap, killing, and all sort of evil deeds, but Ajisola through her NGO, Jewel Empowerment Foundation, has solicited for a better alternative from the government and also proffers a lasting solution for the underprivileged and street hawkers through in a new flick.
The basis of the movie, according to Ajisola was to draw the attention of the Federal government, states and well-meaning Nigerians to the plight of many young Nigerians, who have no means of survival, education, jobs and practically no life, but only find means to make their lives productive through any menial jobs.
Veteran actor, Raphael Niyi Stephen, who is also part of the project said, “The movie is a way of making people know what is happening to kids in the public and also to lend our voices to what the Lagos State government is doing about hawking, letting people know hawking isn’t the last option.”
The director of the movie, Tunde Olaoye, noted that the short movie is a public service announcement for the children on the street and to encourage the government to look for a better solution.
