Trouble seems to be lurking in the Actor’s Guild of Nigeria as veteran actress, Clarion Chukwura, has condemned the guild’s president, Ibinabo Fiberisima, rating her administration zero.
In a chat with our correspondent, 49-year-old Chukwura expressed disappointment at the state of the guild, describing the present administration as corrupt and lacking vision.
‘I would rate her zero because nothing tangible has been achieved on the issue of welfare and working conditions of the actors. It is commendable that she secured an appointment to see the President on behalf of the guild but the opportunity was sacrificed on the altar of self interest and myopic objectives which has for a while now heightened the self interests and corruption practiced in the state chapter levels,’ she said.
Meanwhile, the General Secretary of the guild, Abubakar Yakubu, has reacted to Chukwura’s allegations, blaming it on her ignorance. According to him, most of the things complained about are already in Fiberisima’s plans.
‘She’s been too far from the guild, that is why she still complained about the things she did because the president and her team are working on most of them,’ Yakubu told NET.
