Joke Silva to Produce Chinua Achebe Novel

Nollywood star actress Joke Silva has been commissioned to produce a cinematic version of Chinua Achebe’s novel, “Man of the People” by River’s State Govenor Amaechi.

The Rivers State Governor who is a graduate of English Literature from University of Port Harcourt is in love with the plot of the novel Man of the People and his wish is that every politician should read that novel but knowing very well that there is dearth of reading culture among Nigerians, he thought it wise to put the entire novel into cinematic format so that it will attract wide audience and patronage.

What is not known is how much the project will cost the Rivers State Government as the sponsor. However a deadline has already been given to the project handlers and it is known that Govenor Amaechi is a man who believes in excellence.

He is also one man who believes that the lessons learnt from the epic movie Man of the People will change the way and manner that Nigerian politicians carry out their responsibilities.

I look forwards to seeing this when it eventually comes out. I only know Joke Silva as an actress but I am hopeful that she can do justice to Chinua Achebe’s work.
