AGN Expresses Gratitude To Tinubu For Intervening In Ailing Actor


March 30, (THEWILL)- The Actors Guild of Nigeria, AGN have appreciated President Bola Tinubu for intervening in the life of Nollywood veteran actor, Zack Orji during the period his health was challenged.

Orji had slumped on December 29, 2023, and was admitted to the intensive care unit of the national hospital in Abuja.

In January, Hannatu Musawa, the culture minister, revealed the actor underwent brain surgery and called for support for him.


Orji later underwent two successful brain surgeries and now requires further evaluation abroad.

The film star has since departed the country for the United Kingdom for a post-surgery assessment.

Speaking on Orji’s medical trip in a statement, Emeka Rollas, the president of the AGN, expressed gratitude to Tinubu for his fatherly intervention regarding the wellness of the ailing actor.

He also confirmed that Orji left for the United Kingdom for a post-surgery checkup.

“On behalf of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, the National President, Dr Ejezie Emeka Rollas, MON, has expressed deep appreciation to His Excellency, President Bola Tinubu, GCFR for his fatherly intervention on the health of the former President of the Guild, Mr Zack Orji, who has departed to the United Kingdom for post-surgery assessment”, the statement reads in part.

“Dr Rollas also commended the First Lady, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, for her motherly care towards the veteran actor as well as the son of the President, Seyi Tinubu for his inflicting support.

“Also worthy of his appreciation is the Minister for Women affair Barr Uju Kennedy Ohanenye for her relentless efforts in ensuring Zack Orji gets back on his feet hale and hearty while he equally extended his profound gratitude to his longtime friend, Ahmed Bala for standing by him all through the period.”

The AGN president also thanked Tinubu on the appointments of Ali Nuhu as managing director of Nigeria Film Corporation, Shaibu Husseini; director general of the National Film and Video Censors Board and Obi Osika, Director General of the Council for Arts and Culture.
