Actor Emeka Rollas has been re-elected to serve another three years as the national president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN).

According to the News Agency of Nigeria, AGN elected new national executive council (NEC) members to continue with the affairs of the body for the next three years.

The new leadership was elected on Tuesday night at the end of the 2022 Nollywood Actors Summit of the guild held in Benin City, Edo.

Not less than 120 delegates from 20 states voted during the election, which was supervised by Steve Eboh, NEC chairman, and Emma Ogugua, the chairman of the board of trustees (BoT) of the guild and held at the Victor Uwaifo Creative Hub.

Emeka Rollas, the incumbent president, was re-elected to continue in his capacity for a fresh three years.

Nazareth Jesse, Marcus Maina, Bukky Fagbuyi, Clement Anigbo, and Moklese Osain all emerged as vice presidents for north-central, north-east, south-west, south-east, and south-south respectively.

Abubakar Sanusi won his bid to become the AGN secretary-general while Chelsea Nwodo emerged as assistant secretary of the guild.

Other elected executives are Emeka Duru as financial secretary, Oby Okafor as treasurer, David Akuma as director of guild services, and Kea Adams as provost.

Speaking on behalf of the executives, said the new leadership would consolidate the successes of the AGN in the last three years and be more committed to the welfare of members.

“I can say today that all we have done in the past three years was foundation laying, so let us join hands and build on the successes we have so far achieved,” he said.

Emeka Rollas studied mass communication at Oko poly and graduated in 1993.

He has been AGN president since August 22, 2017, when he won the election for a first term.
