Her Excellency president of AGN, Ms. Ibinabo Fiberesima, once again has demonstrated her penchant for doing the impossible. The fair one that has in less than two years transformed the guild to become the envy of all other guilds. At the event to mark one year in office of the Lagos chapter chairman, Victor Osuagwu, Madam President made a pleasant surprise appearance. At the announcement of her coming, the atmosphere became positively charged in anticipation of the president whose achievement surpasses that of every other president the motion picture industry has ever had.
Ms. Ibinabo Fiberesima left everyone dumbstruck when she announced that the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, His Excellency Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has once again demonstrated his love for the creative industry as he has delivered the land they asked for when they paid him a courtesy visit earlier this year.
In her words she said “When I wanted to be president, they said I am a woman but dem no know say na woman sabi make things work pass. I chased this land like a lunatic because I didn’t want to hear that the certificate of ownership did not come when I was president. So today I am so happy to present this certificate to the board of trustees”. At the sight of the certificate of ownership held high in the air by the chairman of the board of trustees Mr. Ifeanyi Dike, her members burst into heavy celebrations and the ladies began singing and dancing in her honor.
Mr. Ifeanyi Dike could not hold his excitement he said “Madam president I thank you for finally giving AGN a home. This is what we had in mind when we formed this guild”. He thanked the president Goodluck Ebele Jonathan for making true his promise to them. “Once again our president has shown that he is a man to be trusted. On behalf of AGN I say thank you”. Other notable board of trustee members and veteran actors present like Sonny Mcdon W, Okey Bakasi, Emma Ogugua and many others also lent their voice to eulogize the exceptional president.
Ms. Ibinabo Fiberesima in a chat with the press to announce that she had finally given in to the calls of the congress and her members nationwide to run for a second term. This they said was due to her monumental achievements and it will be unfair to deprive the guild of such selfless service. Also it will give her the opportunity to consolidate her achievements. Also beneficiaries of the AGN’s benevolence fund like Prince James Uche, Maxwell e.t.c. made surprising entrances to share their experience and encouraged other members to register for the health scheme. Prince James Uche said “in 2008 I lost my family and I lost all hope but madam Ibinabo has shown me that I have a bigger family”. Many veterans have benefitted from the benevolence fund. Mr. Larry Williams who the President rented an apartment for and is furnishing is the latest beneficiary. For a long time the veteran actor had been homeless, the matter recently got to the hearing of Madam president and she took swift action.
