The National Executive Committee of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, AGN, rose from A One-Day Crucial Meeting to issue this Communique at the End of the meeting, which is here signed by the Director of Communication of AGN, Monalisa Chinda-Coker, with the following as resolution.

That the National Executive Committee appreciates all members who took part in the sensitization campaigns on the permanent voters’ card registration (PVC) enlightenment drive that ended on 31st July, 2022, as the campaign targeted reach was rated very high with the resolve to embark on various enlightenment campaigns to sensitize Nigerians further on the need to have a peaceful national election in February 2023. 

In a statement made available to "Precious Eze's Blog" by the President of the guild, the communiqué says that the Guild is not against the ambition of any political aspirants, but the Guild cannot openly support or campaign for any aspirant in the coming election as the AGN is neither a non- political nor a non-profit making Association, but recognises the right of individual members to campaign, support, promote and even endorse any aspirant of their choice stating that such individual does not represent the interest of the AGN and must not speak in a manner of representing or on behalf of the Guild.
