The leadership of the Liberia Movie Union has expressed disappointment in the Government of Liberia’s treatment meted the International actor, Gregory Artus Frank.
“We are disappointingly dismayed to see this government not presenting even a little token of appreciation to the International actor, Gregory Artus Frank who is the first person in the history of Liberia to have won Africa’s most prestigious award,”LIMU leadership lamented.
According to LIMU, the award was turned over to the Government of Liberia on August 27, 2015 at the Ministry of Information but government did not give him anything as an appreciation. “The Liberia Movie Union sees this as the highest level of moral injustice attributed to the International Actor who has put Liberia on the map in the movie industry.”
LIMU leadership said the action exhibited by government has the propensity to kill and weaken the spirit of other potential actors and will serve as bad precedence for others who leave Liberia.”The Nigerian Government has offered Artus Frank an endorsement contract for bill boards all over Nigeria while the Ghanaian Government gave him a vehicle as a gift for making their country proud.
Meanwhile the leadership of the Liberia Movie Union wants the government to realize the shameful and embarrassment she has caused to the nation. Meanwhile the International Actor has left the country with despondency and is now faced with what he will really tell his fans and journalists in Ghana.
