“We realise that this industry is one of the highest employers of labour. The veterans and practitioners have continued to provide succour and a means of livelihood to a lot of citizens. More importantly, they give freshness to our lives through their stories.

“The health insurance scheme is part of our interventions to assist them with access to health care in public health facilities.

“This scheme will be specially categorised for professionals in the film business and those who have shaped our society with their craft.”

The gesture is coming a few months before the 2023 general elections, in which the governor is seeking a second-term mandate.

Meanwhile, Kanyi Daily reported that Sanwo-Olu recently announced a salary increment for Lagos civil servants.
