President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, on Tuesday evening, hosted Ali Nuhu, Salisu Aliyu (Chali), Tijjani Faraga, Maryam Habila , and other members of the Kannywood film industry at his home in Abuja.

In tweets on his @BukolaSaraki handle, Mr Saraki stated that Nigeria’s domestic film industry is the second largest producer of films in the world; in this regard, it was a pleasure to meet and interact with actors, actresses, directors and producers from Kannywood.
