The massive corruption and greed in the corridors of power in Nigeria must have prompted the production of the award-winning movie, The 90 Ninth Day. It’s a commentary on everyday issues in the country.

The 90 Ninth Day bagged five nominations at the last Best of Nollywood Awards and even achieved a more spectacular feat by clinching most of the awards at the Homevida awards held in Abuja recently.

The movie, which features veteran actors like the amiable Bimbo Akintola and Keppy Ekpeyong Bassey, is due to hit the big screens Friday, March 27, 2012 nationwide.

It also features one of the winners of a popular Unity Bank reality show, Orduen Apel, and Stephanie Apel among others. It was directed by Paul Apel popularly known as Papel.

The plot is woven around the captivating story of Engineer Jack (Paul Apel), who won a power plant contract from the government. This begins a chain of treacherous and tragic events for him and his family. Susan (Bimbo Akintola), who lost out of the bid, embarks on a blind revenge. In the dangerous triangle is one of Jack’s friends, Col. Ben (Keppy Ekpeyong Bassey) whose obsession with becoming an army general turns him into a psychopath. For honor, Jack’s family hangs in the balance.
