President of Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Emeka Rollas Ejezie has condoled with the family of Mr. Obi Madubuogwu who died yesterday after a protracted battle with Diabetes.

In a statement by the guilds Public Relations Officer, Mr. Frank Dallas, sorrowful Ejezie said that it is indeed a sad day not only for Nollywood but the  creative industry at large.
He said: “It is sad receiving Obi’s congratulatory message on phone but he didn’t live to see me face to face thereafter meet the reforms we are about bringing to AGN with this new executives. Obi was part of this dream to see I become President. Last year, I was chairman for his foundation event.”

The President prayed that God will grant the family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss which he said has created a vacuum in the industry.
In another development, Ejezie who recently emerged, President of the guild has promised ground breaking development by the expiration of his tenure even as he and his executives have set an agenda that will ensure total peace, tranquility and equanimity within members of the guild.

As a result, an advisory council has been established to see that all aggrieved veterans and founding fathers, who for one reason or the other have backed the guild, return back to take their place.

They include; Veteran Alex Osifo, Segun Arinze, Ejike Asiegbu, Dr. Remy Ohajianya, Mercy Johnson,  John Okafor (Ibu),  Nkem Owoh, Steve Eboh , Larry Williams,  Zack Orji, Sani Danja  and Nasir Mohammed.
In his remark at a press parley held in Lagos, Ejezie said: “ As president and leader of this Government of National Unity, I am open to collaborations and will be ready to work with all. My executive council will be run in such manner that attracts and accepts positive suggestions and opinion from all and sundry, inclusive of all dissolved factions.

We shall at once begin to fan the ambers of partnerships and affiliations prior created with relevant international bodies, even as we also create more.  The International Federation of Actors, to which I was able to affiliate the guild while serving as a secretary to Segun Arinze, has had little or no dealings with AGN since 2013. In fact, there is so much to be done. There are so many broken edges to be mended, especially those perpetrated by the roughages of crisis. 

Today we are one of the biggest actors body in the world, if not the biggest. We have also continued to grow in numerical strength as the days go by. Now the Big question is, should we allow this guild to fall at the feet of incessant crisis and calamities birthed by power cravings?  

This is why I call on all well meaning members of this noble guild, stakeholders, veterans and all dissolved factions to be hand on deck with us. We understand our place as servant leaders. We do not claim to know it all. Neither do we claim to be the best amongst the thousands of actors in the guild. But what we do believe is that nature has fated it in a manner that we are the once to serve AGN at this critical point in time. Therefore, we appeal again for the support of all.”

He added: “We call on the media especially, to play positive roles that will only gear towards our uniting us and not to tear us apart. We respect your tool and also understand its capability to build or destroy this peace that we have just found. We urge the media at all levels and genre to be well guided with news concerning us so that only the "air-worthy" can fly.

Once again we thank all those who made it possible for the Enugu peace conference to hold, the Board of Trustees of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, the Local Organizing Committee, all Veterans in attendance, Actors guild of Nigeria, Enugu State Chapter -for hosting us, Delegates from all state of the federation the media etc.  Thank you and God bless.”
