We are yet to hear the end of the power tussle between Emeka Ike and Ibinabo Fiberesima. It would be recalled that Ibinabo was dethroned as president of the guild by a Federal High Court sitting early this year and Emeka assumed the leadership according to the judgement.


However, the coast is not clear for Emeka to have a jolly ride as a president. The Secretary under the Ibinabo Fiberesima-led faction of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, AGN, Abubakar Yakub has spoken differently.

Yakub insisted that Ibinabo is still the president until she is pushed away by the apex court “The matter between St. Maradona Mclive Johnson and AGN, which judgment was pronounced by the Justice T.S Tshoho of the Federal High Court Lagos on March 16, 2015, is a subject of appeal at the Federal Court of Appeal Lagos, no: Ca/l/498/16.”

He went to said“Until final judgment is given by the Supreme Court, if it takes us there, it will ever remain like that. Examples abound of how state Governors were sacked by tribunals and even appeal courts, but were never removed from office until Supreme Court gives its final judgment. She cannot be cowed out of office. We have respect for the rule of law and shall abide by the legal and constitutional process in order to entrench lasting peace in our noble Guild. We urge our members to disregard the so called resolution, which is aimed at satisfying the inordinate ambitions of a disgruntled few in the Guild,” the statement added.
