About a week ago, Hollywood based Nigerian Filmmaker Pascal Atuma clearly stated his preference for Nigeria’s next leader on his Facebook page saying: “If I have to choose between former President Buhari and President Jonathan Goodluck, and they are the only options available as it stands, I will vote for Buhari”.

The popular filmmaker in his most recent Facebook message, sent a congratulatory message to Gen. Buhari on winning the just concluded Presidential election, and his message reads:
“At this moment in time, Gen Buhari is the best option for Nigeria and I am happy that the good and wonderful citizens of Nigeria did the right thing, they have spoken and their voice did the job. I am happy that Gen Buhari will be leading us for the next four years and I believe he will do a fantastic job.” I also want to remind the new President to take care of Nollywood , support Nollywood at all cost and levels and remember that Nollywood flies the flag of Nigeria positively across the globe and that we all supported him from day one because we knew he was the best for us and is the best for us. Together we will move Nigeria forward in a positive direction.”
The Hollywood filmmaker also congratulated Mr. Ben Murray Bruce (Silver Bird Group Chairman) on winning a senate seat. He went on to say:
“I know Mr Ben very well and what he stands for, so with people like him now in the seat of power and involved in decision making the future of Nigeria is bright, brighter than it has ever been, it is a beautiful season for Nigeria, season of great hope, I am happy and excited and looking forward to the new Nigeria, full of hope and development.”
In conclusion, Atuma said:
“This election will serve as lesson to all, the days are gone when politics in Nigeria is business as usual, today, this day the people spoke loud and clear, and their voices echoed the change that we are desire for the future of Nigeria.
May God bless Nigeria and I wish the new regime the best, and call on all Nigerians, home and abroad to help this new regime to achieve a better NIGERIA.”
