Anambra Broadcasting Service (ABS) recently  held her 2019 Festival of Carols and Nine Lessons.

  The annual event which held at the ABS Headquarters, Awka, attracted many dignitaries, including religious leaders, media, music and movies personalities, traditional rulers, public office holders, and other members of the public.

Delivering a homily at the event, the Catholic Bishop of Awka Diocese, Most Rev. Paulinus Ezeokafor, who spoke through a priest from the diocese, Rev. Fr. Patrick Umezi, urged the participants to take the preparation for Christmas beyond a mere physical readiness into spiritual readiness.

He reminded the people of the meaning and significance of Christmas and called on everyone to embrace Jesus Christ, as no one can claim to be celebrating who he does not know or belong to.

The event which was chaired by Chief Sunday Ezeobiora featured readings of the nine lessons, song renditions, raffle draw for management and staff of ABS, musical performances, and other activities which made the event colourful.

Addressing newsmen at the event, the MD/CEO of Anambra Newspapers and Printing Corporation, Sir Chuka Nnabuife described the  festival of carol and nine lessons as a staple in Christmas celebration, as well as the rite of readings that culminate in the birth of Jesus Christ, maintaining that its primary intent is to make people know the spiritual significance of Christmas and the circumstances that surrounded the birth of Christ.

In his vote of thanks, the MD/CEO of the ABS, Chief Uche Nworah, extolled Governor Willie Obiano’s giant strides and effort in rebranding the organisation to a world class standard, even as he eulogized the guests, participants and others who contributed in one way or the other towards the success of the 2019 event.
