Nigeria comic actor John Okafor popularly known as Mr Ibu has asked the AGN President Ibinabo Fiberisma to drop her ambition of contesting for a second term. According to Ibu, about 90% of the AGN members do not want her as their President, with many court issues being tide against her. He also said she is adamant to rule because she is gaining something.
“Going for a second term is making the anger in people expand. It is better for her not to come again. She should leave the office and allow another person to try. No progress at all. I am not part of it. As I speak with you, Ibinabo has about two to three court cases. We are tired, we want another person. We should try a new person, let’s see what he or she would do. About 90% of the people she is ruling say no, but she insisted. Why? Because she is gaining something” he told Encomium magazine this week.
When Mr Ibu was asked about his assessment of the movie industry, he said:
“If I should talk about the movie industry you would make me shout because the industry is giving me headache. I am not happy at all. I believe we are matured enough to be independent. As big as AGN is we don’t have a national headquarters, I mean a film village. Go to other countries in Africa, they have most of these facilities but we have not been able to achieve these because of greed. All the money promised by President Jonathan and other state Government, what have they done with it? Whether it has been collected or not we don’t know. It is very painful considering the number of years we have been in existence”
