From David Hassan, Gombe
The Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) has called on Gombe state government to invest in the state chapter of the Guild as one of the surest means of effectively tackling youth restiveness n the state.
Marshal Johnson, the National Vice President of AGN in the Northeast sub-region spoke during the first conference of the Northeast chapter held in Gombe He said, “If for instance the government puts a hundred million into AGN, I believe that in the next six months, it would recoup that money in three folds without going to sell outside the country.”
He said AGN is a marketable product with the capacity to employ millions of persons of all ages and put food on their tables if they are actually willing.
Chairman, AGN, Gombe state chapter, Mr. Habu Gimba applauded the restoration of peace and unity at the national level of the Guild saying the state chapter had been bedeviled with this problem and others since coming on board in 2005.
Jimmy Lot, the Secretary of the Zone and Chairman of Adamawa Chapter, called on members to be patient as their tie would always come, even as he insists on creativity.
