The Abuja Film Village, AFV, on November 14, 2022, launched the inaugural leg of its films on education media literacy campaign and training for secondary school students.

The event, which was coordinated in partnership with the “I Am the Future of Nigeria Youth Initiative”, IFON, Actors Guild of Nigeria, AGN, and the Nigerian Film Corporation, NFC, was held at the Government Secondary School, Garki., Area 10, Abuja.

The speakers at the event emphasised the need for media action to sensitise the Nigerian populace on the scourge of fake news.

The convener of the event and CEO of the Abuja Film Village, Dr. Francisca Ibezim, lauded the Federal Government decisive actions against fake news.

She solicited sustained and determined action in view of the plethora of information on the Internet which can be used in a malicious manner.

She also stressed the need to inculcate and promote media literacy and films in education awareness training into the national curriculum with a view to ensuring access for every Nigerian student.

“In view of the fact that 21st-century kids are growing up in a digital world and media change, they must be educated on the consequences the change is presenting,” Dr. Francisca Ibezim stated.

“The Internet and social media have given our youth access to lots of information, both real and fake. Teaching media literacy provides relevant skills to detect what information is fake, misleading or, in fact ,real. This enables them to think critically about all the information they process.”

As part of the engagement, the CEO of IFON, Mrs. Noni Okocha delivered a Spot the Fake News training to 100 students of the secondary school.

The training elicited positive reviews from all guests and participants in attendance.

The students received further training in film production and photography to enable them to develop an interest in the media as a future career path.

The President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Chief Emeka Rollas, as well as other ranking members of the Guild and connected stakeholders,was present at the event.
