Agent From Abuja: In Pursuit Of Social Change
There is an uncommon passion at the base of struggles for a new order that benefits everyone, young and old and from all walks of life.
A lot goes into these efforts – sacrifices and convincing viewpoints that spur action. When these efforts yield desired outcomes – changing the status quo, they bring benefits to the doorsteps of the entire nation.
This is the promise the recently released feature film, Agent From Abuja holds.
An Undaunted Love For Motherland
Written and directed by versatile British-Nigerian filmmaker, Ade Adepegba for Kuramo Bay Filmworks, the arrangement of scenes and performances communicates the import of patriotism to the primary target group – Nigerians. It is this sense of responsibility that gives the film a fitting opening, the interrogation of a former state governor by a group of young Nigerian students seeking improved conditions of living for fellow countrymen.
Set in London, United Kingdom, dialogues in Agent From Abuja raise hope and optimism, and encourage Nigerians to contribute to the good of the country from anywhere. The film also succeeds in highlighting challenges – by narrating occasional conflicts resulting from opposing viewpoints among the young Nigerians portrayed.

Out For Change
Moved by the selfless urge to change the state of affairs back home, the four young Nigerians in Agent From Abuja create a point of duty by fighting the African political class which the corrupt ex-governor represents. In contrast, they (the young Nigerians) represent a group of concerned citizens among the Diaspora making concerted efforts for the country's progress.
We are drawn by the film into understanding their motives and inspiration and the multiple setbacks they face as they encounter threat and danger in this crucial mission.
Without reservation, this political thriller is a thorough exposé on the ills affecting Africa's progress and the contributions uncommon patriotism and responsibility bring to crushing the continent's interconnected challenges. And the audience will enjoy this from the get-go to the very end.
