"The court sacked Ibinabo, Emeka Ike has never been AGN president" - Chairman of the Actors Guild of Nigeria Caretakers Committee, Steve Eboh, says AGN currently has no president.
According to the actor, Emeka Ike has not been able to tell the body who voted him as the president of AGN, while Ibinabo Fiberesima is yet to say what legal mandate she has over AGN.
He stated this in an interview with HVP.
On the established Caretaker Committee, Eboh said, “I don’t know why Ibinabo and Emeka Ike are afraid of the Caretaker Committee. The essence of the caretaker committee is to reconcile warring factions of the guild, stay in power for some time, conduct fresh elections and ensure that the guild moves forward again. And some people are not happy with the development. Some of them have lost their relevance in the guild. They want to remain in power, meaning that there is something they are not telling us."
On Ibinabo and Emeka Ike as AGN president, Eboh said, "The court sacked Ibinabo, and Emeka Ike has never been the president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria. Now, he’s laying claims to the presidency of the guild.
"Emeka Ike has not been able to tell us who voted him as the president of AGN. The same goes to Ibinabo, who is yet to tell us what legal mandate she has over AGN now."
On March 23, 2016, Ibinabo Fiberesima was removed as the president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria by a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos.
Following the verdict, Nollywood actor Emeka Ike was announced as the interim president of the guild pending its elections in 2018.
Recently, AGN Secretary under Ibinabo Fiberesima, Abubakar Yakub, released a new statement stating that the actress remains AGN president until a supreme court judgement.
