The Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) has said that it is poised to eradicate all forms of alleged sexual harassment of its members by some alleged producers under the scope of allocating attracting roles to them in their films.

The newly elected National President of AGN, Emeka Ejezie, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that it was part of his leadership’s efforts at cleaning the industry.

Emeka was recently elected as president of AGN during the just concluded Peace and Reconciliatory Committee’s conference held in Enugu in August.

He said that sexual harassment of ladies in a common phenomenon.

“And such allegations against film producers by actresses may either be true or false, but we are going to raise eyebrows to ensure it does not exist.

“We will restore sanity into the industry by campaigning against sexual harassment of our members and ensure it begins to occupy its pride of place,” he said.

He also said that the guild would also develop a database that would checkmate the activities of those who come into the guild with other motives rather than acting.

“We are going to expose the bad eggs in the industry if at all they exist by creating a database of actors; this will afford us the opportunity to know the real actors and fish out imposters,” he said.

The president also said that the new executive would try to identify producers who were alleged to be collecting money from young actors with a promise to allocate good roles to them in their films.

“Most times, these amateur artistes may end up not getting such juicy roles often promised after they must have sold their bodies to such dubious producers,” he said.

Emeka also reacted to the public view that most styles of story lines were portraying fetish or traditional norms.

He said that it was the function of script writers and producers but not the actors.

“Actors and actresses are like messengers; we follow the directives of film producers who give us scripts, it is what the script says that we act,” he said.

He, however, said that the guild would create an affiliation with the bodies in charge of scripts and producers to fine tune the quality of Nigerian films.

Emeka said that the guild would also encourage scriptwriters and producers to venture into writing scripts on issues such as Agriculture, Engineering and Information Technology that could enhance national development. (NAN)
