June 27, 2016 – Ibinabo Fiberesima Blasts Emeka Ike Over AGN Presidential Seat, Says Appeal At Federal High Court Lagos
The ongoing battle between Ibinabo and Emeka Ike is far from over.
Ibinabo’s faction of AGN just dropped a press statement over Emeka Ike’s claim that he is the newly appointed president of the Guild.
A new statement released by Ibinabo’s team reads;
“The National Executive Committee received the news of a group purported to have set up a Caretaker Committee to take over the Guild as a shock because no group or stakeholders approached the National Executive Committee on the said meeting.
Also, our State Executive Committees were not aware of the alleged meeting. Much as we would not like to respond to the resolution of the said stakeholders meeting which looks like child’s play to us, however, we need to set the records straight for avoidance of doubt by our teeming members and the general public.
The fact is that Ibinabo Fiberesima remains the only elected President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, AGN.
The matter between St. Maradona Mclive Johnson and AGN which judgment was pronounced by Justice T.S Tshoho of the Federal High Court Lagos on March 16, 2015 is a subject of appeal at the Federal Court of Appeal Lagos.
Until final judgment is given by the Supreme Court, if it takes us there, it will ever remain like that. Our State Executive Committees were not aware of the meeting including over 85% of State Chairmen across the country, so the Chairmen that attended the said meeting did on their individual capacity and not on behalf of their State AGN Chapters.
