Following the November 18, 2017 election which led to two factions in AGN, imo state chapter, the Nneoma Ukpabi’s faction has visited the SA on entertainment, Hon. Chukwunonye Irouno and Veteran Actor, Pete Edochie amongst others for their support.
This came after the Nneoma Ukpabi’s faction lost out in the Election due to their refusal to partake in the poll despite having a full knowledge of the election venue approved by Actors Guild Of Nigeria Electoral Commission (AGNEC) but choose to go elsewhere to run unopposed election overseen by no member of the AGN’s electoral Committee.
In the meeting which took place today, 18 November at the Government House Owerri, the AGN members who were led by veteran Nollywood actor Tom Njemanze, thanked the state government for the provision of Imo International Convention Center IICC as the venue for their faction’s election as well as the accompanying security officers.
In his speech, Veteran actor Tom Njemanze, disclosed that the essence of the visit was to familiarize with the state government for massively supporting the body during and after the election and also to present his fation’s executives to them.
Mrs. Nneoma Ukpabi who was present at the meeting also thanked Imo State Government, pledging to solidly work with them in achieving all the visions of the government for the entertainment
industry in the state.
The Senior Special Assistant on Entertainment to Imo State Governor, Hon. Chukwunonye Irouno, welcomed the faction and hailed them for the peaceful manner with which they conducted their elections at the Imo International Convention Center IICC. The S.A further pledged to work with her faction to ensure the growth of the movie industry in the state as well as ensuring that the vision of His Excellency Owelle Rochas Okorocha to develop the entertainment sector in the state is achieved.
