Few weeks ago, Nollywood comedy actor, John Okafor popularly known as Mr. Ibu stated that the controversial President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, (AGN) Ibinabo Fiberesima is not fit to lead the guild, noting that some members are unhappy with her administration.
Reacting to the statement credited to the GOtv ambassador, the ex-beauty queen via a telephone interview with Punch’s Saturday beats said, she didn’t go to collect money from the President as Mr. Ibu had alleged, saying also that it was known fact that the actor usually goes to the president to beg collect money.
Ms Fiberesima said:
“Which money is he talking about? That is why I said he is detached from the realities on ground. When we went to visit the President, there was no money promised to anybody. We didn’t go there to beg for money as Mr. Ibu is used to doing; we didn’t do that. They push you to the extent that you say things that you don’t want to. I’m not about money, for once they should stop and think, see what my team and I have achieved in two years.”

Rather, we have been open about everything we have done, so if he attacks me the way he did, it clearly shows that he is completely detached from the reality, because he complained about things that we have achieved long ago, which shows that he is not part of the Guild,”
On the allegation that she’s forcing herself on the Guild, the newly engaged mother-of-three said,
“Mr. Ibu cannot vote for me, he does not have the power to do that. He cannot even run for office because he is not a member, and I was expecting to see the names of the members whom he referred to because I don’t know them, and I hope they are members of the Guild because we have actors who are not members.
“You should not because of your interest in a name feel you can come out and talk off point to become relevant. When people say people should have education, it is for this kind of reason so they will know how to speak in public.
“They think running to the press and running me down on Facebook and others will deter me. No. I was not brought up like that, I’m a very thorough breed. I will do what I have to do to get to where I am going. It is the love that I get from people whose lives I have touched that keeps me going, not those who don’t know where they are going, because every sentence they make is money, where is the money?”
