Akwa Ibom Christmas Carols festival now Set - 19th Dec.

The stage is set for the annual Akwa Ibom State Government carols festival, scheduled for Saturday, December 19 at Uyo Township Stadium, Uyo.
Disclosing activities lined up for the 2015 edition of the carol, Commissioner for Information and Communications, Mr. Aniekan Umanah said that the event, which affords the Christian community a wonderful opportunity to celebrate Christmas in a special way, has become a major source of spiritual tourism to Akwa Ibom.
He said, “people from all walks of life, from within and outside the state and Christians across denominational lines will gather and share the joy of Christmas by singing praises to the Almighty God.”
The Information Commissioner, who said the Carol promises to be unique, in line with the Dakkada philosophy of Governor Udom Emmanuel, said participants should expect to be spiritually charged and lifted as much as they would be thrilled by the calibre of gospel music artistes and clergymen billed for the event.
Mr. Umanah said while the General Overseer of The Redeemed Evangelical Mission, (TREM), Bishop Mike Okonkwo will minister,  International gospel music icons like Donnie Maclurkin, Shirley Caesar, Angella Christie and Chevilie Franklyn will minister in music, which will be broadcast live on major national and international television networks.
Also scheduled to perform at the international gathering are Asu Ekiye, Sammy Okposo, Freke Umoh, Lara George, Aity Dennis Inyang, Chinelo Dillimono alongside the young Saxophonist, David Eka and Don Tom. In addition to individual appearances, there will also be performances by the Voices of Barbados, Promised Land Chorale and Akwa Ibom State Government Choir.
