The official trailer for Ishaya Bako‘s political drama 4th Republic is out! The teaser which dropped a few weeks back let us into the movie which will drop sometime in April 2019; introducing us to its stellar cast- Kate Henshaw, Bimbo Manuel, Linda Ejiofor Suleiman, and Eyinna Nwigwe.
Its theme is definitely for the season and I suspect that it might echo post-election happenings. My first attraction from the teaser was probably how it captured some of my idealistic thoughts about leadership in Nigeria.
If I’d ever write a political-themed script, a woman would be President in it!
Check Out the SYNOPSIS…
Following a violent and heavily marred governorship election, aspirant Mabel King and her idealistic campaign manager, Ike try to discover what went wrong and seek justice through an election petition tribunal. Their quest soon becomes a race to find and convince two young witnesses with evidence of violence at the elections to testify in court; before the opposing candidate finds them first.
Written by Emil B. Garuba, Zainab Omaki, and Ishaya Bako.
