Emeka Rollas And Kate Henshaw Clash Over Sen. Elisha Abbo Patron Appointment

Emeka Rollas, President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) has responded to actresses Hilda Dokubo and Kate Henshaw over the proposed appointment of Senator Elisha Abbo as a patron of the actors committee.

 

Earlier, the above-named actresses had rejected the proposal on the grounds that he is a “Woman abuser”. Their comments also drew huge support on the internet.

 

However, in a recent interview, Emeka Rollas revealed that the Senator had apologised for his act. Also mentioning that the Senate had sanctioned him thus, he had paid his dues. He also mentioned that everyone is imperfect.

His statement on the matter reads:

 

“The woman involved did she accept the apology or not? When I mention morality and legality, you ask us who is holier than senator Abbo? There was a committee set up in the Senate on the same matter and the committee does not convict him. Is Actors guild a body to be used to do all of these?

 

“People should just go and sit down. There’s no point sentimentalizing issues just to drive a point. We know the stage where people who are fighting human rights operate, not within the confine where actors Guild is involved.

 

“I don’t want to begin to mention names if we begin to dig deep into peoples’ personal lives, honestly, people who have mentioned this man’s name, may not even stand a morality test.”

When he was specifically asked if Kate Henshaw and Dokubo are members of the guild. He gave a dodgy replay. Rollas said:

 

“We have to check the membership list, I do not know all the members, as I told you we have two million people.”

 

Kate Henshaw has since responded to the AGN president’s interview. She revealed a tweet containing a letter from the Guild requesting to honour her with a veteran actor award.

Meanwhile, social media users have stood their ground that Senator Abbo does not deserve a place as a patron on the AGN, his apology notwithstanding.

 

They also alleged that Emeka Rollas is presently eating off the Senator since he is all out to promote his image. We do not know if this will be the last clash of words between Emeka Rollas and Kate Henshaw but trust us to follow up on the story.
