The President, Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Mr. Emeka Rollas, has finally spoken on the plan of the AGN board over the rehabilitation of actor Ernest Asuzu, who has been down with a stroke for years.
Recall that Within Nigeria had reported that Ernest was seen begging shirtless on the streets of Lagos a few days ago.
Speaking with NAN, AGN President, Emeka Rollas said;
“We appreciate all the concerns and show of love from members and the public over Asuzu’s plight, but I need to point out here that AGN has never abandoned him.
“He went for rehabilitation at the Mercy Land Christ Deliverance Ministry, Warri, Delta, by Prophet Jeremiah Omoto Fufeyin, a spiritual patron of our guild. “He spent some months and recovered,” he said.
Rollas added that Fufeyin gave Asuzu gifts including money and a jeep, after the rehabilitation, to further support him. “ Since he left Warri, we have not heard from him.”
He continued saying;
“All of a sudden, the young man made a defamatory video. “We totally frown at this erroneous and misdirected act because it is unimaginable to think or believe that we did not play a role to an actor who has fallen due to hard times. “The point I am driving at here is that it is unfair to blame an entire industry for the unfortunate turnaround of one of its own,” the AGN boss said.
