Nollywood star actress Patience Izokwor a.k.a Mama G, is not happy over the outcome of the recent AGN election that produced the guild`s first female president and AGN`S 7th President, Ibinabo Fiberisima. She is said to have started soliciting membership of her new guild.
According to E247mag, in a telephone conversation with NI, Mama G refused to confirm the story but instead used the medium to vent her anger on the just concluded elections.
She said, “I don’t want to say anything about that election. Elections that I and others were not carried along. What an election was that?” When the issue of the newly formed guild was pushed further she angrily replied, “Do not ask me such a question. I do not talk with journalist on phone. I do not know what you are talking about. If you want my answer you must look for me to question.” She then cut the call and several attempts to get to her to talk again was abortive as she would not pick calls nor reply to text messages sent to her.
Meanwhile the Vice Chairman of the AGN Board of Trusttees, Emma Ogugua has called Mama G`s action a bluff that would be dealt with at the appropriate time.
The BOT VP in a SMS to Mama G and forwarded to NI wrote, “Madam, am shocked your name was mentioned among those forming a new AGN guild in Asaba. How people forget history very quick. I still remember when I came to screen u for membership of AGN in Enugu and how u told me dey no dey give us role. To u AGN has failed u, let me ask, when did u pay ur dues last or send in a memo to help leaders of AGN. We have repeatedly intervened in ur issues and problem to save ur name. ur are collecting signature b/c a non Ibo won AGN presidency. My honest advice, do not let them ruin ur name. AGN will protect itself from internal and external tribalism attempt. Even the Emeka don cool down. Why did u not contest so u can show the world how to lead a union? Well thanks but we will not break AGN into tribal lines. Soon now u will get national award, yet tribalism run in u. urs Emma Ogugua.”
