Professor Johnbull, the lead character in the TV drama series called by the same name, will in this week’s episode call for improved civic behaviour among the populace.
The Professor, played by veteran Nollywood star, Kanayo O. Kanayo, will be seen promoting due process, proper documentation and shunning of all activities that do not align with socially acceptable behaviour. Among the ills the fatherly scholar counsels against in the episode are smuggling, use of fake drivers’ licence and littering.
Professor Johnbull, is a didactic drama on prime time national television, powered bytotal telecommunications service provider, Globacom. Every week, the show deals with social behavioral issues using comedy and satire.
It is broadcast on Tuesdays at 8.30 p.m. on NTA Network, NTA International on DSTV Channel 251 and NTA on StarTimes, with a repeat on the same channels on Fridays at the same time.
This week’s episode, entitled What About You, will pay attention to good citizenship; and in the end counsel everyone to take collective responsibility for the good and development of the society.
A preview of the new episode sent out by Globacom shows the actors depicting roles individuals should play to make the society better before blaming others for the shortcomings of the government and other individuals in the society.
What About You highlights the need for citizens to realise that it is wrong to believe that government must provide everything, and encourages citizens to maintain facilities provided by the government for their convenience and also practice subsistence farming to boost the nation's food supply.
The episode co-stars comedian, Godwin Komone, alias Gordons, who engages an inexperienced driver packaged for him by the rascally character of the sitcom, Samson (Ogus Baba).
Regulars of the play who feature in What About You Include the vivacious Jumoke (Bidemi Kosoko), the comical Etuk (Imeh Bishop), the slippery Olaniyi (Yomi Fash-Lanso) and Abadnego (Martins Nebo), the vigilant gateman to the Professor .
