AGN President, Emeka Rollas Ejezie, finally stated that AGN has pulled out of the Federation of Registered Nollywood Guilds and Association (FRENGAN) citing its focus on the growth, development and welfare of its members.
AGN declares its departure from the Nollywood guilds’ federation.
The AGN claims that its decision to leave the federation came about as a result of member pressure for it to concentrate on the. Welfare, growth, and development of its members.
The Federation of Registered Nollywood Guilds and Associations (FRENGAN), according to the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), has. Lost the membership of the organization due to its emphasis on the welfare, growth, and development of its members.
This was mentioned in a letter from Emeka Rollas, National President of AGN, to the FREGAN leadership that was made accessible to the. News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday.
He asserts that the guild’s choice to leave the federation came about as a result of pressure from its members, who wanted it to put more emphasis on the welfare, growth, and growth of its members.
“The National Executive Council has reluctantly decided to withdraw AGN’s membership from FREGAN after. Carefully considering the recommendations and opinions made by our members and stakeholders.
“This is to allow the Executive Council to concentrate on the growth, development, and welfare of members as we currently. Work as service contractors, which means we lack labor rights and have no access to social security.
But because making movies is a team endeavor, we’ll keep encouraging and promoting clear industrial ties between all the. Guilds and associations.
The letter promised that “we shall uphold fair contractual practices and a regulatory environment to improve the lives of our members and make the future of our industry more sustainable.”
However, the head of AGN reassured that the guild will continue to support and encourage sensible and clear industrial relations among all the guilds and associations in the Nigerian film industry.
According to NAN, FRENGAN is the collective organization for all officially recognized guilds in the Nigerian film industry. Its members include the Association of Movie Producers (AMP) and Directors Guild of Nigeria (DGN).
The Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), the Movie Practitioners Association of Nigeria (MOPAN), and the Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners of Nigeria (TAMPAN), among others, are additional guilds and groups included in the alliance.
