Nollywood actress, Ajisola, who is passionate about the younger generation, especially the underprivileged, has commenced work on a new movie entitled: “Road To Ruin.”
The movie tends to address the plight of the banned hawkers who are now finding it difficult to survive since the Lagos State government placed a ban on street hawking.
The development came as a result of the rampant cases of crimes and traffic congestion which, according to the state government, had aided robbery, kidnap, killing, and all sort of evil deeds.
Ajisola, through her Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), Jewel Empowement Foundation (JEF), has solicited for a better alternative from the government and also proffered a lasting solution to the challenges of the underprivileged and street hawkers in the new flick.
The movie, according to Ajisola, was to draw the attention of the Federal Government, states and well-meaning Nigerians to the plight of young Nigerians, who have no means of survival, education, jobs and practically no life, but only to 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 and also to lend our voices to what the 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 was a public service announcement for the children on the street and to encourage the government to look for a better solution.
