The Throne of Majesty and Honor, which was also the most populated band at the Heavenly Father Glorious March, has emerged the winner of that exercise.
Announcing the results during the Grand finale at the BCS World Headquarters, the Holy Father, His Holiness Olumba Olumba Obu revealed that Throne 4 beat eleven other Thrones to emerge the overall winner with a score of 76.49%, while the Throne of perfect Justice and the Throne of Power and Authority landed the first and second runners up spot respectively.
The criteria for judgment included, costumes, orderliness during the procession, interpretation of Throne themes amongst others. Each Throne, as directed by the Holy Father, was expected to design a float with not less than 500 members in the colours allocated to it to showcase the beauty of the Heavenly Father and His Kingdom.
The twelve Thrones unveiled by the Holy Father recently participated in the competitive procession.
With their colorful costumes, participants who kicked off the procession from the BCS World Headquarters marched through three adjudication points at Edgerly, Mayne Avenue and at Mary Slessor before terminating at the Gabriel Odiah Stadium at the University of Calabar.
Speaking after the announcement, the Throne Leader, The Patriarch, Christ Shepherd Michael West, who was visibly elated expressed his joy and gratitude to the Holy Father promising that the Throne of Majesty and Honor intended to maintain the feat for as long the competition subsists. CS West, who also doubled as the King of the Throne, thanked all the Throne members for their ingenuity, resilience, and effort which earned them the crown.
The March is expected to become an International Brand, unifying the children of God, the world over.
Thank You Father!!!
