Segun released a statement yesterday:
The events in Benin on the 28th of April 2012 is now common knowledge (a failed AGN election held that day in Benin). I know I constituted an independent Agnec that was supposed to be devoid of any electoral rancour or external influences.
For my integrity and honour, I hereby resign as president of Actors Guild of Nigeria and it comes into effect immediately.
I thank the state chapter chairmen, his fellow presidents from other guilds in Nollywood, all AGN members and especially the media for their tremendous support.
I want to thank profoundly my wife, Julie, for holding on during the challenging period of service to the guild.
