An abuser of women as Patron of Actors Guild of Nigeria is an unpardonable abuse of the rights of all the females in the creative space especially #actors. We must stop every attempt at rubbishing our values as a people with such appointments in whatever guise. Consequently, Senator Abbo #sextoysenator must be delisted from our list of Patrons now. @k8henshaw @ajokesilva @ibinabofiberesima @uchejumbo @shangeorgefilms @omonioboli @monalisacode @ritadominic @iamshaffybello @realomosexy @genevievennaji @uzoosimkpa @stelladamasus @stephanielinus @mofedamijo @nfvcb @alibabagcfr @gideonokeke.ng @@oshinbose @bimboakintola @iniedo @instablog9ja @bimboademoye @actionaidnigeria @fida.nigeria @unwomen @bbcnews @drjoeodumakin @macfound Please keep tagging all stakeholders until he either steps aside or gets delisted by those who appointed him #saveourwomen #artislife #stopviolenceagainstwomen #savethecreativespace

“Emeka Rollas, I cannot find your handle on Twitter, my name is Kate Henshaw and I do not mince words when I say @AbboElisha is NOT worthy to be a patron of the Actors Guild of Nigeria. We have women in this guild and we do not want to be slapped!!” She said

Omotola Jalade was more ambitious with her hashtag #notmyguild which sends signals of a call to boycott the guild.

She says ‘A culture of Shame. Where all that matters is How much momey you have or you can be bought. This shame also belongs to artists that join to become lobbyists and beggers around govt etc… SAD #notmyguild 

While there has not been any reactions from those that appointed senator abbo as National Patron, the call for his removal is fast gaining support.
