The National Executive Council of the Actors Guild of Nigeria has elected new members to oversee organisation operations for the ensuing three years.
The new leadership was chosen on Tuesday night at the conclusion of the 2022 Nollywood Actors Summit held in Benin City, Edo State, according to The News Agency of Nigeria.
The Victor Uwaifo Creative Hub served as the voting location for at least 120 delegates from 20 states.
The Guild’s Board of Trustees Chairman, Emma Ogugua, and the NEC Chairman, Steve Eboh, oversaw the election.
The incumbent national president of the guild, Emeka Rollas was re-elected, while Nazareth Jesse, Marcus Maina, Bukky Fagbuyi, Clement Anigbo, Moklese Osain emerged vice presidents for North-Central, North-East, South-West, South-East and South-South respectively.
Abubakar Sanusi won his bid to become the AGN secretary-general, while Chelsea Nwodo emerged assistant secretary of the guild.
Other elected executives are Emeka Duru as Financial Secretary, Oby Okafor as Treasurer, David Akuma as Director of Guild Services and Kea Adams as Provost.
Speaking on behalf of the new executives, Rollas said the new leadership would consolidate on the successes of the AGN in the last three years and be more committed to the welfare of members.
He, therefore, called on members across the country to shun all divisive tendencies and work with the new executives to build a formidable guild.
“I can say today that all we have done in the past three years was foundation laying, so let us join hands and build on the successes we have so far achieved,” he said.
Rollas, who was first elected as national president of the AGN in 2019, said a date would soon be announced for the inauguration of the new leadership.
