Continuing the statement reads;

Dr Hussieni is a NEGA awardee who has for many years proven that he understands the film art in Nigeria and its progressive development. He has contributed so much either as a journalist or policy maker in the Nigeria film realm.
He has been head of jury at several film festivals of the world including African Movie Academy Award AMAA contributions that earned him NEGA award in 2014.

For Ali Nuhu, he has exhibited artistry in his chosen trade and has been recognised for so doing. He has featured in uncountable number of productions which earned him NEGA award in 2023.

It is our belief that President Bola Tinubu has made one of his best choices ever.
We are very proud of your achievement and accomplishment, which we so recognised many years past

We also believe your appointment will contribute to the next level that the Nigerian Film industry is headed.
