The Actor’s Guild of Nigeria (AGN) has reacted to the statement issued by Association of Nollywood Core Producers (ANCOP) over the former’s support for the centenary celebration billed to hold in 2014.

Speaking exclusively to NET, the PRO of the AGN, Frank Dallas, described ANCOP as an unrecognised group whose stand on matters relating to the guild are untenable, ‘ANCOP is not relevant neither is it recognised. They are just a group of charlattans who failed an election and went ahead to form a group to fool themselves’ he said while confirming the guild’s support to the Federal government’s centenary celebration.

ANCOP through its president, Alex Eyengho, had earlier issued a statement accusing AGN of conniving with the presidency through its secretary, Anyim Pius Anyim to rip off the industry. He describes the meeting as an avenue to waste money and stated ANCOP’s disinterest in the alliance.

‘Let me make it clear that neither ANCOP nor I as the President are against this interactive session with Nollywood… The session Senator Anyim had was not with Nollywood but with Kanayo O. Kanayo with those he decides to inform, hand picked and invite. Nollywood is a formal and serious industry replete with eggheads. We must be treated as such‘, Eyengho said.
