Nollywood actress, Fisayo Ajisola, who is passionate about the younger generation; especially the underprivileged, has commenced work on a new movie titled: “Road To Ruin” which addresses the plight of banned hawkers who are now finding it difficult to survive since the Lagos State government had placed ban on street hawking.
Ajisola, through her NGO, Jewel Empowerment Foundation, has solicited for a better alternative from the government and also provide lasting solution to the predicament of the underprivileged and street hawkers through a new flick.
The basis of the movie, according to Ajisola is to draw the attention of the Federal government, states and wellmeaning Nigerians to the plight of many young Nigerians, who have no means of survival, education, jobs and practically no life, but only make their lives productive through doing menial jobs.
Veteran actor, Raphael Niyi Stephen, who is also part of the project said, “The movie is a way of making people to know what is happening to kids on the street and also to lend our voices to what the Lagos State government is doing about hawking and to let people know hawking is not the lasting 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.
