In his speech, vice president, Actors Guild of Nigeria, South West, Chief Femi Branch said that the era of disinterest and nonchalance regarding the Affairs of the Guild by Actors is fast becoming a thing of the past as a lot of Actors are now getting interested in the Affairs of their Guild. Speaking further, the AGN VP, South West said. “Before the Lagos election, there was a prediction that the election may be the beginning of the end of the chapter, but today here we are. Lagos has spoken for herself for, despite all the premonitions, threats, and nay-saying, AGN Lagos has just successfully schooled the entire Nation on how to hold a free and fair election. At this point, I must thank the Lagos State AGNEC for a job well done, maybe we need to second you guys to INEC for the forthcoming Elections” an elated Femi Branch said.
