Nollywood: Eboh pledges credible election for Actors Guild
Steve Eboh, Nollywood actor and Chairman of National Electoral Committee of the Actors Guild of Nigeria(AGN), has pledged the committee’s commitment to ensure that the forthcoming election for the guild is credible.
Eboh, popularly known as Ajebo, stated this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.
According to him, the election is slated to take place at the 2019 National Convention of the AGN scheduled to hold on Oct. 30 to 31 in Uyo, Akwa-Ibom.
He explained that having passed through leadership crisis in the recent past, it was imperative to have an election that would produce leaders that would build on the success recorded by the current executives of the guild.
“As an electoral committee, we are determined to have credible elections in Uyo, in order to build a strong, united and peaceful guild for Nigerian actors.
“We are expecting nine delegates from every state, apart from observers, because constitutionally, we operate the guild with nine executives both at the state and national levels.
“There is office of the president and nine other positions to be contested for, including six zonal vice presidents coming from the six geo-political zones,” he explained.
Eboh, a former vice president and former chairman National Caretaker Committee of the AGN, also said that a new constitution would also be unveiled by the guild at the conference.
