Ejezie Emeka Rollas, MON, has returned unopposed for a third tenure — 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.

Rollas was re-elected on Tuesday, in Benin. He also polled 115 affirmation votes against four nays to retain his position just as Abubakar Yakubu Salisu got 120 ‘yes’ votes against one nay vote to return as National Secretary while Chelsea Nwodo emerged as assistant secretary of the guild.

Veteran actress Oby Okaforwin emerged the new National Treasurer of the guild. She defeated Rhoda Adugba who polled 50 votes.

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.

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

Meanwhile, the position of National PRO of the guild formerly held by Monalisa Chinda-Coker was declared vacant as the star actress declined to contest for a second term.

Insiders disclosed that the actress was cooking a new project that will require her total concentration in the coming year. The Guild we hear, will fill the post in a by-election at a later date.

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.
