Popular TV sitcom, Professor Johnbull, sponsored by telecommunications giant, Globacom, this week preaches the virtue of good citizenship and the need for the citizenry to take collective responsibility for the communal well being and development of the entire nation.
The episode, entitled What About You, highlights the roles individuals ought to play in a bid to make the society better instead of shifting blames about society failings to other individuals and public office holders at different levels.
Nollywood star, Kanayo O. Kanayo, who plays Professor Johnbull in the series, teaches socially acceptable behaviour among the citizenry. Such behaviour includes due process, proper documentation and the need to consciously jettison activities that are inimical to the development of the country.
What About You makes an effort to dissuade those who believe that government must provide everything, while encouraging citizens to protect social facilities provisioned by the government for their use. The erudite Professor equally posits that only an early recourse to subsistence farming will ensure food sufficiency in the country.
Other civic infractions flayed by the drama include smuggling, procurement of fake driver’s licence, street littering and other acts of social irresponsibility.
The episode becomes all the more hilarious with the cameo appearance of popular comedian, Godwin Komone, a.k.a. Gordons, who takes on an impetuous driver introduced to him by the rascally character of the sitcom, Samson (Ogus Baba).
