… Holds Christmas Carol
Youths Earnestly Seek Soludo (YESS), a pressure group pushing for a greater Anambra through the emergence of Prof. Chukwuma Soludo as the next Governor of the State, is set to appreciate her critical stakeholders and benefactors.
The appreciation is part of the YESS 2020 Christmas Carol of Nine Lessons slated for Sunday, December 13, 2020.
According to a release signed by the Chairman of the Organising Committee, Mr. Oscar Ebekue, the event, which will be held at Rally Arena, Office of the Director-General, Inter-Party Affairs located along the Onitsha-Enugu expressway, Amawbia Junction, Amawbia, has the theme “Reflections of Greater Glory.”
The carol will feature performances from choral groups, soloists and other talented artistes including popular DJ Schoolboy, while the guest minister will be the Senior Pastor, Garden of Grace Church International, Pastor Obi Ogbo.
Special guests expected at the event include Chief Leon Mezue (Ide Ideani) and Executive Secretary of Anambra State Health Insurance Agency (ASHIA) Dr. Simeon Onyemaechi. Also to grace the occasion are distinguished Traditional Rulers including Igwe Gerald Mbamalu of Ojoto and Igwe Ben Emeka of Umueri.
The release quoted YESS Convener, Dr. Nelson Omenugha, as stating that the event is aimed at not only affording YESS stakeholders and other lovers of Soludo an opportunity to end the year in joy and praise, but very importantly, will also afford a golden opportunity for appreciating and honouring individuals who have sacrificed in one way or the other towards the cause of YESS.
“This year 2020 has undoubtedly been a very chequered one. We have all faced very difficult challenges especially as occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic and the attendant socio-economic disruptions. But that notwithstanding, the fact that we are still alive and in good health of mind and body calls for joyful thanksgiving. So, we at YESS would like to use the opportunity of our carol of nine lessons to praise and thank God for His Grace and protection in the face of daunting challenges as well as unwind and felicitate with each other in order to end the year in a very happy and lively note.
“Secondly, this is also an opportunity to say a huge thank you to our stakeholders and benefactors who have supported us all this while, financially and otherwise. They have been our backbone and we remain totally grateful and would love to show this gratitude in whatever little way we can,” Dr. Omenugha said.
The release stated further that members of the public are encouraged to attend the event where they will be treated to great musical renditions and other entertainments as well as given a good opportunity for spiritual reflections.
The event, which commences at 2.00pm prompt, will also feature sumptuous feasting and exchange of gifts in the spirit of Christmas, the release added.
