Last month, my team and I hosted some guests to the Abuja premiere of DRY. The guests comprised of people who have supported the movie and believe in its cause, movie enthusiasts, journalists and much more.
I sincerely apologize for bringing you photos from the event so late *covers face*.
Dignitaries and guests who attended included World Bank’s Vice President & Treasurer Arunma Oteh OON; Senator Ben Murray Bruce; the Kenyan Ambassador to Nigeria Thomas Amolo; USAID’s Acting Mission Director Matt Burton; Program Officer, Advancing Public Service Media (West Africa) of Ford Foundation Paul Nwulu; Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Health Dr Linus Awute represented by the Director/Head of Department of Family Health Mr Wapada Balami & Country Project Manager Engender Health/USAID Fistula Care Plus Project in Nigeria, Dr Habib Sadauki.
Also present were Charly Boy, Charles Novia and some cast members of DRY including Zubaida Ibrahim Fagge, Hauwa Maina, Paul Sambo, Anna Tanko as well as representatives from the World Bank and AIR Peace. The event took place on Thursday 13th August at the Silverbird Cinema.
I’m very grateful to everyone who showed up for the event and who lent their support in one way or the other. Your kindness is well appreciated.
DRY is still showing in cinemas nationwide. Go watch it and let me know what you think about the movie.
