Contrary to the outcry of movie industry players about the delay on the part of the executive of ARSOG to release funds issued by the government to the industry players, the Secretary to the association, Christopher Nimo known as Ash Bowa has refuted such claims.
According to Ash Bowa who revealed this to Seancity Media, he stated categorically that there has not been any levy from the government to the leadership meant for the industry players which they are withholding.
