    Actors Guild of Nigeria President, Ibinabo Fabrisima came under fire at the Nigeria Entertainment Conference held recently in Lagos when legendary film maker Amaka Igwe in her opening presentations accused the guild of having no proper health insurance schemes for members.

    Mrs Igwe had in her paper titled: The Nollywood Paradigm - reflections from an unapologetic commercial Nollywood film maker accused the Guild of for long not taken the health concerns of members with utmost importance; citing the death of J.T Tom-West who died in an undisclosed hospital after an auto accident in September 2006.

    Mrs Igwe said the Guild had no identity documents for members or any form of health insurance arrangements that members can fall back on in cases of extreme exigencies which she said had delayed help for late Tom-West.

    I still think IB is the best thing to ever happened to the AGN. Thank God say dem no let Emeka anywhere near the presidency. As far as I'm concerned, IB is the only real President the Guild has ever had. The rest na mickey mouse Presidents.
