Reason I resigned from Censor Board – Tunde Kelani


A-list cinematographer and director, Tunde Kelani, recently resigned from his position as the chairman and member of the National Film and Video Censors Board.

The veteran shed light on his resignation in an interview with Punch, saying, “Being a member of NFVCB wasn’t financially rewarding as most thought; it was a service to the country. We were supposed to formulate policies that would support the movie industry. I resigned because I felt I could do more as a stakeholder. I felt I would be more useful to the industry if I was not part of the board.”
