The Abuja chapter of the Ekwulobia Peoples Union, EPU, has scored first position in the cultural competition at the 2021 Anambra Day Cultural Symposium.
The Anambra State Town’s People Association, ASTPA, Abuja chapter, recently organised a cultural symposium in Abuja with the theme: “Taa Bu Gboo,” which literally means, “it is not yet late.”
The association used the cultural symposium to organise cultural competition amongst the member town unions based on punctuality, uniformity and comportment, amongst others.
The competition was keenly contested between the town unions, the third, second and first positions went to Awkuzu, Enugu Agidi and Ekwulobia town unions, respectively.
Vice Chairman of the union, David Aniagboso, commended the panel of judges for finding his association worthy of winning the first position at the cultural competitions.
Aniagboso also commended the other town unions that participated for cooperating with the organisers of the event, he, however, said that he was not surprised that his town union won the first position, based on the yardstick by the organisers which are comportment, uniformity, punctuality and ability to be attentive at the event.
Chairman of the occasion, Chief Emeka Offor, who was represented by Chris Ezike, Governor Willie Obiano represented by the Anambra State Liaison Officer in Abuja, Mrs Agatha Manafa, the president General of ASTPA, Chief Arinze Anadu, Ichie Tochukwu Okeke, all commended the organisers of the event for a successful outing.
The Local Organising Committee, LOC, chairman, Amaechi H. Ezeokoye, said that the event was a huge success in line with set targets.
