Nigerians and philanthropists have been tasked by the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) with providing financial support to veteran stage actor Amechi Muonagor.
The call was made by AGN National President Emeka Rollas in a post on Instagram.
Rollas, together with other colleagues, showed a photo of his visit to the sick actor.
He said that although the AGN had approved money to be sent to him from the guild's trust fund, more financial assistance would still be needed.
Rollas stated: “A few days ago, I accompanied some of my colleagues and one of our National Patrons, Chief Ejiamatu Nwokeabia, to check on Amaechi Muonagor. He is cheerful, as evidenced by the people who accompanied me.
“I have approved money being sent to his account from the AGN TRUST FUND, which obviously cannot be enough due to his details on the Guild HMO & Insurance policy.
“I therefore use this medium to appeal to young actors to register for the AGN HMO and Insurance programs.
