144,000 Virgin Choir Expected In Biakpan For Leader Obu's Centenary

At least two million out of the five million members of the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star across the world are expected in Biakpan, the birth place of Leader Olumba Olumba Obu as part of activities to mark his centenary celebration which began in December 2016.

This was disclosed at a media parley organised by Starcross Television in Calabar, the Cross River state capital at the weekend where other activities lined up for the centenary celebration were outlined.

According to Christ Ambassador Richard Effiong, secretary of the central organising committee of the centenary, the pilgrimage to Biakpan will take place between 20th and 22nd of December.

He also said other activities include the hosting of 10,000 choristers in an 18-hour praise involving singing of 100 hymns ceaselessly on 28 December.

He said seven choirs from four regions in the country would compete, while choirs from UK, Ghana and the 144,000 Virgin Choir would also participate in the event.

Another major event of the centenary is the grand finale billed to hold at the U.J.Esuene Stadium with a procession of thousands of members from Ambo street headquarters of BCS to the stadium.

“Also to be observed is grand carnival float Calabar in the order of 36 states of Nigeria and about 40 nations of the world,” he said.

At the event, some acts of charity performed by Leader O.O. Obu were also highlighted. These include feeding and clothing of the less privileged, moral and material support for prisoners across the world, students' scholarship, supply of relief materials to survivors and internally displaced persons of war-torn countries through the Christ universal Mercy Fellowship in the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star.
