He expressed regret at a situation where some media professionals were biased in their presentations during town hall meetings and other political activities.

Electoral Act

“The denial of equal airtime to all political parties contravenes Section 95 of the 2022 Electoral Act.

“It is the responsibility of the media to provide a level playing field for all aspirants to make their manifestos known at all political gatherings regardless of the status or popularity of the candidates or aspirants.

“This will allow the electorate to be well informed about the intentions of the applicants.”

Nollywood Award

Speaking about the Nollywood Award, Umeadi explained that he had been fond of all efforts that would promote positive cultural values.

He said that since childhood, he had played positive roles in theater, civic and sports activities in school, after school and during his career in national service.

Prom Dinner

While at school at CKC Onitsha in 1971, I played a major role in a popular drama, entitled “Prom Dinner,” written by Henshaw.

“These activities in various ways have helped enormously to engage youth in a positive way and contribute to community development projects.”
