Ibinabo Fiberesima asked to step down as AGN president, vows to fight back

Uh Oh! It appears that Ibinabo Fiberesima has been removed as President of the Actors’ Guild of Nigeria (AGN) on the orders of a Federal High Court, Lagos.
Justice James Tsoho, the presiding judge ruled that the election which was conducted October 2014 that brought  Ibinabo for second term was against court order following suit filed by actor, St. Maradona Mikevine.

 Ibinabo Fiberesima has vowed to fight on despite the
unexpected turn of events.
In a chat with NET,  she said she
is aware of the court ruling and that her legal team is putting a response
together, the embattled first female president of the actors’ body said:
 ‘Yes,
we lost, but I intend to appeal and we’re working on that presently.’
You may
recall that the suit seeking to have the president and her executives removed
was filed by Nollywood actor, St Maradona Mikevine who claims that the election
that ushered Ibinabo in as the guild’s president is void due to a subsisting court
order at the time.
The election was conducted against that order in 2013 by
former president, Segun Arinze and the Guild’s board led by Ifeanyi Dikeh.
Ibinabo emerged winner of that election and has since been in office, having
bagged a second tenure in office following elections last year until this
recent ruling declaring her election void by Justice James Tsoho….
