The Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) has temporarily listed the indefinite suspension imposed on a Nollywwod actress, Ms Queeneth Hilbert, for alleged professional misconduct.
Hilbert was suspended by AGN on June 3, following preliminary investigations into several complaints received from the Film and Video Producers and Marketers Association of Nigeria (FVPMAN) regarding his alleged breach of contract.
Mr. Emeka Rollas, president of AGN announced the partial lifting of the suspension in a statement addressed to journalists Monday in Abuja, by the director of communication of the guild, Monalisa Chinda-Coker.
According to the statement, the partial suspension was to allow the 29-year-old actress to complete any pending contract jobs she had signed before the suspension.
“The guild’s decision to partially withdraw the suspension was in a spirit of camaraderie with the Nigeria Film and Video Producers and Traders Association (FVPMAN).
“They wrote to express the unspeakable hardships and losses currently facing some of her members who had contracted the actress before her indefinite suspension.
So, in solidarity with FVPMAN on the fate of some of its members, AGN must partially lift the ban, to allow the actress to complete all of her pending work.
“Queeneth Hilbert is free to resume filming all
and the pending jobs she had contracted before the suspension with immediate effect, ”Rollas said.
He stressed, however, that the suspension would be fully lifted once the actress and model finished filming “De Meks Movies”, as recommended by the National Disciplinary Committee headed by Mr. Sam Dede.
Rolland explained that the committee led by Dede had conducted extensive investigations, met with all parties involved in the case, and made recommendations that the guild would implement very soon.
He thanked the discipline committee for doing a thorough job on the issue.
The committee chaired by Sam Dede, made up of renowned actors and actresses such as Kanayo O. Kanayo, Clarion Chukwurah, Funsho Adeolu, Tricia Eseigbe, Adigizi Bala and Lillian Amah-Aluko who served as secretary.
Rollas expressed hope that with the temporary lifting of the suspension, Hilbert would adapt and adhere to the ethics of the profession.
The national president of AGN urged its members to always report any act of unprofessional treatment in any job to the presidents of state sections or the national secretariat for immediate action.
The Nigerian News Agency (NAN) recalls that Hilbert, Lebanese of Nigerian origin and mother of a child, was suspended for professional misconduct, breach of contract, abandonment of a film set without authorization, serious negligence in the schedule and production protocols, among others. . (NAN)
