Ben Tomoloju, a veteran journalist, theatre director and playwright, spearheaded the demand, as a way for federal, state and local governments to aid the development of live theatre and complement other social amenities.
Tomoloju's call was backed by actor Dejumo Lewis, who played Kabiyesi in the classic television series, 'Village Headmaster'.
We should not leave theatre in the hands of (just) Wole Soyinka, Ben Tomoloju, Femi Osofisan, Ahmed Yerima or restrict it to the National Theatre. No! Each local government in this country should own a mini theatre. As thespians, we are the conscience of the people and so our mission should not be limited to the centre, just as carrying them out in those local areas becomes a challenge without at least a mini-theatre," he posited amidst thunderous applause and cheers from delegates.
Ben Tomoloju however charged all thespians at the interactive session to see themselves as important agents in the quest for free, fair and credible elections. "As theatre practitioners, we are stakeholders in the Nigerian project and we have to play our role assiduously. Rather than standing by the wings, we should put our profession to work to conscientise and inform the people on the need for a violence-free election come 2011," he advised, adding that the election process requires a lot of public awareness and INEC or government alone cannot do it. "With small drama sketches, radio drama or television drama series, we can make a lot of difference," he concluded.
