The co-producer of the highly expected movie on the outbreak of Ebola Virus Disease in Nigeria, ‘93 Days’, Dotun Olakunri, has said that Nigerians should be proud of the film.
For him, ‘93 Days’ is a film Nigerians should support because it tells a story that is a major milestone in our history as a people and one that portraits our best moment.
The movie tells the real life story of men and women who valiantly put their lives on the line to prevent the outbreak of the highly dreaded Virus and thus saved Nigerians.
Produced by Steve Gukas, Pemon Rami, Bolanle Austen-Peters and Dotun Olakunri, the film takes people back to 2014. It mirrors the period the news of the virus broke to the immediate measures put in place by dedicated persons and government officials to stop the spread of the disease.
Also, the film recounts the heroic roles played by the Late Dr Adadevoh and her team at the First Consultant Hospital.
It does not leave out the contributions of former Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Fashola; the former President, Goodluck Jonathan, and the minister and commissioners of Health at federal and state levels to save the country from a major epidemic.
Hollywood actor, Danny Glover, Bimbo Akintola, Tim Reid, Somkele Iyamah Idhalama, Alastair Mackenzie, Keppy Ekpeyong Bassey, Bimbo Manuel, Charles Okafor, Gideon Okeke, and other talented actors starred in the movie.
