ABOUT STATE OF EXPECTATION

“STATE OF EXPECTATION” A politician’s desperate bid to eliminate poverty, he embarks on a major quest to build the first mass transit light rail system in whole of sub-Saharan Africa amidst criticisms, natural disasters and a challenging democratic process in a country riddled with poverty, corruption and ineffectiveness.

This is perhaps the first documentary feature film touching on the global theme of “good governance”.

Many resources have been thrown at poverty in the last several decades yet poverty continues to be on the increase. Let’s try something different, a much more logical approach of helping to build capacity for ‘good governance’ in these under-developed countries. According to UNDP (1994 Initiatives for Change), it is a global consensus that “Good Governance is the primary pathway to eliminating poverty”.

“State of Expectation” is a 76 minute documentary feature film themed ‘struggles of good governance in motion’. It tracks the activities of a Nigerian politician. Filmed over the course of six years, the film follows the journey of a young African leader the Governor of Lagos state-Nigeria, Babatunde Raji Fashola who is committed towards eradicating poverty and bringing sustainable development to his people. He embarks on a major quest to build the first mass-transit light rail system in the whole of sub-Saharan Africa. This will lead to an unprecedented level of economic activities with the rest of Africa and beyond. Amidst criticisms, natural disasters and a challenging democratic process, this film demonstrates the struggles and efforts people are making towards rebuilding their environment and a new face of leadership in a country where politics is synonymous with corruption and ineffectiveness”.

This is an advocacy film calling for a “million man world march on poverty,” to draw the attention of world leaders towards helping to build capacity for good governance as well as partnering and supporting leaders exhibiting good governance in these under developed countries. Good Governance is surely the way out of poverty.

Filmography research indicates that this is the first film on the global theme “Good Governance”. The objective of this documentary is to get the world’s attention to urge world leaders to show genuine sincerity in eliminating poverty by helping to build capacity for good governance. The film aims to initiate a movement of ‘a million man world march on poverty’ as an impactful tool to make the world focus more on developing good governance in under-developed countries.
