The governors of Lagos and Ogun states, Babajide Sanwo-Olu and Dapo Abiodun respectively, as well as a former Osun State governor, Bisi Akande, were joined by other associates of presidential aspirant and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, for a private screening of a biopic of the former Lagos State governor titled, ‘Last Man Standing’.

The screening, which was held on Thursday, March 17, 2022, in Abuja, was received by the guests present, who applauded the producer of the movie, Best Of Nollywood convener and Ultimate Communications boss, Seun Oloketuyi, for a job well done.

Speaking on the event, Oloketuyi stated that the private screening was not part of the original plan. He said, “We had planned to simply hold a premiere at the end of March, but a lot of things informed this private screening. First was the fact that people have been talking about the movie a lot and both cast and crew were worried that the film could be misinterpreted, misrepresented or even maligned before it was made public. We also needed to be sure that we had got things right. Based on the remarks I got from Asiwaju’s close associates who know him well, I think we have done a good job that we can be proud of.”

Oloketuyi also maintained that the film is not a political material. He said, “As I said before, the movie is not a political material but a record of facts in history. I think people are getting tired of watching only feel-good movies, drama, comedy, and other genres. As an industry, we are now waking up to our responsibilities as gatekeepers of history like the bards of old. Aside from entertaining, we are learning to make movies that matter, and this is one of them.”

Directed by Tunde Laoye, actors in the biopic include Lateef Adedimeji, Gbenga Adeyinka, Jide Kosoko, Madam Kofo, Shushu Abubakar and Sam Olatunji.
