Biakpan, which has been a local and obscure village in Biase Local Government Area of Cross River State for years, is now becoming a beehive of activities as thousands of people flock into the community for Pilgrimage. The Community, which has certain mystique around it, is becoming more popular by the day due to its status as the birthplace of Leader Olumba Olumba Obu, The Spiritual Head and Founder of Brotherhood of the Cross and Star reputed to command legions of diehard followers in many countries.

Recently, a massive crowd of faithful/pilgrims from Rivers State in Nigeria took their turn to visit the Holy land for the 2019 pilgrimage. The 3-day exercise themed was “Biakpan Our Home, Rivers Here We Come” had a lineup of activities such as fasting, a procession around the community, visitations to community Heads, free medical outreach for indigenes who are resident in the land, and the groundbreaking ceremony of the Rivers house among others.

While delivering his keynote address, during the grand finale held at the Centenary Legacy Hall, the State Administrator, His Grace Archbishop Dagogo Obene, expressed joy to the Heavenly Father, His Holiness Olumba Olumba Obu, for His intervention in all the activities of the State.

CHAIRMAN PLANNING COMMITTEE RIVERS’ BIAKPAN PILGRIMAGE

Obene pointed out some of the activities of the State, which include media evangelism where the Father’s gospel is broadcasted on the Nigeria Television Authority, Channel 10 in Port Harcourt despite the vicious orchestration of slander by some religious organizations to stop the NTA from airing the weekly program.

Still reporting on their evangelical strides, the State Administrator also informed that evangelism to the prison yards had received accolades from the State Prison’s Authority for the level of coordination and consistency on the path of BCS Rivers State members. Thus he promised that the State will look into expanding their tentacles to other outlets within the State.

Expressing appreciation to the Father for the successful planning and hosting of the pilgrimage, Obene appealed to the Holy Father, His Holiness Olumba Olumba Obu, to bless the committee and the entire Riverians equally.

The Supervisor of the State, Her Eminence Millionet Okon, in her speech extolled the Holy Father for the grace which the State enjoys affirming that is courtesy of the love of the Heavenly Father. She called on all pilgrims to reflect on the essence of the pilgrimage even as she assured them of the Father’s Divine intervention throughout their activities.

His Grace, Archbishop Polycarp Akpan, the Bishop of the State in his comment, called on members of the State to see the moment of the pilgrimage as a medium of homecoming where all true children of the Father should  place their requests before the Universal Leader.

Subsequently, the Chairman of the Planning Committee, Christ Ambassador Enoch Amadi, who was filled with joy for the success of the event, urged Riverians to replicate the same or do even better in terms of participation during the Mega Event.

The Pilgrimage was one of the activities that ushered in the year 2019 Mega Event. Thank You Father!!!
