…420,000 when converted at the rate of 420
Days after being called out and told not to serve as Nollywood ambassador, a video has surfaced showing the moment controversial Senator Elijah Abbo donated the sum of One thousand dollars to local movie industry, Nollywood.
Recall with NobleReporters that veteran actors like Hilda Dokubo and Kate Henshaw had asked for him to be removed as the patron of Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), due to the reported ‘slap’ he landed on a lady in an Abuja sex-toy shop some months ago.
Sen. Elisha Abbo seems unconcerned as he made the donation of $1000 (Which is about 420,000 when converted at the rate of 420 per dollar) to Nollywood.
Days after Kate Henshaw, Hilda Dokubo and some other agitated movie icons kicked against the decision of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, AGN, to select Senator Elisha Abbo as a patron of the guild, the President of the guild, Emeka Rollas has called for an emergency meeting.
According to the information passed by the Guild’s Public Relation Officer, Monalisa Chinda, “AGN has heard the voices of the actors and willing to engage in a dialogue”
