The Actor Guild of Nigeria (AGN) has said it was considering cancellation of movie productions in some locations across the country sequel to COVID-19 pandemic. Mr Emeka Rollas, the President of AGN,  told News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Abuja.

He said that though AGN was not responsible for movie production and it was the exclusive preserved of Executive Producer, but the guild was making effort to liase with them if they could cancel production for three weeks.

Rollas said that AGN was already engaging producers in view of the COVID-19 pandemic and the directive by the Lagos State Government that people should not gather anywhere more than 50.

We are talking to producers to see how they can hold on in term of movie production for three weeks,” Rollas said. He said that the Federal Government had also closed down some places; hence, the AGN must also take some measures to forestall the spread of COVID-19.

Rollas said on his part, he had ordered its member to stop gathering in large number, stressing that they must always move with their hand sanitiser.
