The embattled outgoing Chairman of the
Actor’s Guild Of Nigeria, Imo State
chapter, has accused the Special Advicer
to the state governor on Entertainment,
Hon. Chukwunonyerem Irouno of Using his
office to influence and manipulate their
election to favour one of the chairmanship contestant, Mrs. Nneoma Ukpabi. He accused the honorable of inviting veterans and members of the association to mandate them on voting his alleged candidate or lose the government support.
Following the endless banter of accusations sorrounding the ongoing AGN Election scheduled today, AMi Media team has contacted the office of the incumbent Chairman, Mr. Conac Umez and he has this to say;
Exercising one’s franchise in an organization is not a do or die affair but Its sad to state that some persons in the group have made it seem like one. Imo AGN is one body of which whoever wins, would carry others along but it baffles me how the Special Adviser to the state government is trying so hard to dent the image of the Governor Okorocha Led government; he said.
There are five People contesting for the seat of chairmanship of which Nneoma Ukpabi is one and amongst these 5, She was the last person to purchase the form. “In a course to manipulate the members, she claimed that she’s been sponsored by the state government of which has in recent reports said that it would withdraw its subventions given to the AGN if Nneoma Ukpabi did not win”; He added.
“The Actor’s Guild Of Nigeria Electoral Commission (AGNEC) has decided that the electon must hold today at Rapour Hotels, Owerri. The decision was made in consideration to the lack of security and how open the previous venue Bongo Center is therefore, any other election elsewhere will remain void and invalid”.
I beckon on the Office of the office of the S.A to allow the AGN to make its decisions solely. Surely, the government would work with anyone who wins If Nneoma or anyone wins therefore i once again ask the S.A on Entertainment, Hon. Irouno to stop imposing his personal decisions on AGN And allow us work as a body.
Accreditation has already begun at rapour hotels…see below for photos…
