Actors Guild of Nigeria President, Fiberesima Ibinabo, has released an official statement in response to the sad passing away of Nollywood actor, Pete Eneh who died on Thursday, November 15, 2012 in Enugu few weeks after one of his legs was amputated following an infection.
‘It was with disbelief I received the sad news of the death of Uncle Pete Eneh. Honestly, I am still finding it extremely difficult to come to terms with his death. Well, we are mere mortals. When fate summons, we mere mortals must obey’ Fiberesima wrote.
‘I believe Uncle Pete Eneh has achieved his aspiration on earth. Also, I believe he is happy where he is now. A good man he was; amiable, loving, kind, humble, and caring. God bless his soul. I shall continue to champion the cause of actors. We are in bondage here; no good welfare package for the actor, no quality insurance/pension scheme, no health plan, nothing!
‘We must save ourselves. We must have our life. We must have our future protected. Health is wealth…we shall work assiduously towards a wealthy motion picture industry.
‘On behalf of Nollywood and the entire motion picture industry, I say farewell to one of the nicest men I have ever known; Uncle Pete Eneh’ the statement concludes
The late Eneh served two terms as chairman of the Enugu chapter of the Actors Guild of Nigeria and had featured in well over 60 home videos starting with the 1998 drama ‘Arusi-Iyi’.
