Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike, says AGN president Ibinabo should apologize for talking about making an appealing.
The drama surrounding the office of the President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) doesn't seem like it's ending soon.
Barely 48 hours after AGN executives released a statement declaring their support for Ibinabo Fiberesima as their President, Nollywood actor Emeka Ike has stepped out to counter them.
In an interview with Nigeria Films, the actor says he is giving Ibinabo 24 hours to apologize to the guild.
According to him, she cannot appeal the case as she is yet to receive a copy of the judgement.
On resuming office soon.
"We have been working from where we are and we are trying to take things easy for now. We are legitimate people."
On Ibinabo appealing the verdict.
"She has not appealed. Do you know what an appeal of a judgement means? The judgement was given on Monday and I ask, ‘has she received a copy of the judgement she wants to appeal at the moment?’
Hello sir (referring to the interviewer), don’t insult my integrity. Before you make any appeal, you have to write papers and take the papers to the right places and you make an appeal with that.
I give her 24 hours to tender an apology to the guild, 24 hours for talking about appealing this case, if not, I will serve her court papers and her cohorts; I am not joking on this matter.
I am not using thugs, I am not using OPC, I am not using any cult members, I am not using the police, I am applying the Nigerian justice system and that is the civilized way of doing things."
On continuing from where Ibinabo stopped.
"I haven’t seen any positive thing. I have to get information from her, she has to give me the keys to the office, the properties of the guild in her possession and I can make an assessment.
The land that was given to them in Anambra State; that was shared illegally by the powerful people, they need to submit this land to the people of Anambra. These are one of the things we are asking for, justice for the Nigerian youths, which I believe you (interviewer) is one of."
