Nollywood actresses, Hilda Dokubo and Kate Henshaw have both taken to social media to involve the removal of the senator representing North Senatorial District, Elisha Abbo, as a patron of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN).
Senator Abbo who attracted negative attention to himself after he was caught on camera beating up a nursing mother at a s**x shop in Abuja in May 2019.
On Monday, March 16, 2020, Hilda Dokubo took to her Instagram page and shared a fanatical video, revealing that she recently discovered that Senator Abbo was named As one of the patrons of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN).
“When you appoint a patron, it because the patron has something you would like to gain and leverage on. It might be financial or moral gain.
“This last week, the actors guild of Nigeria had an investiture for patrons and therefore the unveiling of her dream secretariat. Then I saw his picture among those appointed as patrons.
“Then i started to ask myself how come? How did we get here? How did he get thereon line, considering his reputation? Okay, is it money that we want? Who was he before he became a senator? we would like him to provide us money that he can’t explain how he got? How did get into the road patrons that have people like me.”
Describing the lawmaker as an “abuser of women”, the actress said Senator Abbo lacks the character and requisite reputation to function the patron of an organisation like the AGN.
According to her:
“An abuser of girls as Patron of Actors Guild of Nigeria is an unpardonable abuse of the rights of all the females within the creative space especially #actors,” she wrote on Instagram.
“We must stop every attempt at rubbishing our values as nation with such appointments in whatever guise. Consequently, Senator Abbo #sextoysenator must be delisted from our list of Patrons now.
