He noted that content producers circulating uncensored contents on online platforms were suspected to be producers who had not registered with recognised associations in the country.

He said they should exhibit some level of respect for the laws guiding film production and distribution in the country.

According to him, feeding various internet platforms with uncensored contents has continued to affect Nigeria’s cultural values and the children who stumble on them unconsciously.

He said financial benefits should not only be considered in their dealings but also the moral development of the children and youths who are the future leaders.

“We are concerned about maintaining our cultural and moral values, we should  be mindful of the multiplier effect of showcasing obscene contents on google, amazon and all.

“I call on those content producers in the habit of distributing obscene contents to google, amazon and all to desist from such,” he said.

Thomas appreciated Netflix for working with the board to ensure contents released into the public domain on its platform were censored.

According to him, NFVCB is working unanimously with the Federal Ministry of Information and Culture to see how the circulation of these negative contents can be regulated.

He said the board had not rested on its oars in monitoring and evaluation of the entire industry as arrests were still being carried out, and  seizures of films with obscene videos and vague languages.

He said that the Ghana Film Authority had informed the nation of its decision not to allow filmmakers shoot films in Ghana without seeking permission.

Earlier, Mr Patrick Lee, the outgoing National Chairman of CEAN, spoke on the need to engage government more to enjoy incentives.
