Comic actor, John ‘Mr Ibu’ Okafor has expressed his disapproval of Ibinabo Fiberesima‘s second term ambition as President of the Actors’ Guild of Nigeria (AGN).
While speaking with Encomium Weekly, Okafor described Fiberesima’s tenure as ‘unrewarding for members of the guild’ and advised her against going for a second term, ‘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’ he said.
Okafor further cited Fiberesima’s many legal battles as another reason she is unfit to run for a second term as the guild’s President and added that about 90 per cent of the guild’s members share his sentiment.
‘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’ he said.
Okafor now joins Clarion Chukwura and Dayo Onibiyo, both of whom have, in recent times, declared their opposition for Fiberesima’s second term ambition.
Fiberesima declared her intentions a few weeks ago during Victor Osuagwu’s one year anniversary as Chairman of the Lagos State chapter of the guild.
