The Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) has appointed Sam Dede, a Nollywood actor renowned for his role in ‘Issakaba’, a crime action movie of the 2000s, as chairman of its disciplinary committee.
Monalisa Chinda-Coker, the guild’s director of communications, broke the news to NAN on Thursday.
She said the committee is to maintain law and order in the guild and to ensure actors uphold ethical standards.
Chinda-Coker went ahead to list other members of the committee as including Lilian Amah-Aluko, who was made the secretary, alongside Tricia Esigbe, Kanayo O. Kanayo, Adigizi Bala, Clarion Chukwura, and Funsho Adeolu.
She said that Emeka Rollas, its national president, had inaugurated two other committees to re-organise the AGN.
These were named ‘Harmonization Committee’ and ‘Committee on Establishment of the Women Crisis Institute’.
Chinda-Coker said the harmonisation committee is chaired by Okey Bakasi, a comedian, adding that it was constituted to harmonise recommendations of past committees with the ultimate aim of producing a handbook for members.
According to her, other members of the harmonisation committee are Joke Silva, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, Bimbo Manuel, Ijeoma Imoh, and Marcus Maina with Don Pedro Aganbi as the secretary.
She said that the committee on the establishment of women crisis institute is saddled with the responsibility of helping the National Council of Nigerian Women Societies in raising funds to start the institute.
“This committee is chaired by Ronnie Dikko and Chidi Okafor as the Secretary is designed to take care of women who are victims of rape, sexual molestations, and gender-based violence,” the director explained.
“Other members are Kate Henshaw, Keppy Ekpeyong -Bassey, AJility Onwurah, Kareem Mohammed and Hajia Salma, Desmond Elliot and Femi Branch, among others.”
Chinda-Coker added that the committee on the establishment of the women crisis institute also has Shan George, Chris Oge Kalu, Rita Daniels, Blossom Chukwujekwu, and Oby Okafor as members.
