Ahead of this year’s Ogbunike Cave Carnival, which starts on December 30, 2016, the Central Working Committee (CWC) of the carnival held it’s inaugural meeting on July 3, at Leophine Hotel.
The meeting, which lasted for about three hours, provided an opportunity for the team to look back on the previous editions of the carnival and strategize on how to host a successful event this year.
Just like last year, the committee resolved to host a three-day carnival, which starts on December 30 with the OCC Five-Aside Football Championship. The traditional Ogbunikewalk4life holds on December 31, while Ada Ogbunike Beauty Contest/Carnival Concert holds on January 1, 2017.
Present at the all-important meeting include The Creative Director Chuks Nwanne, Project Manager Ada Uzodoh, CWC Secretary Victory Ogalanya, Head Strategy Iwuchukwu Ogugua (Esibe), Head Protocol Favour Ekwunife, Head Welfare Kene Anosike, Head Communications Casmire Obiegbolu and Ada Ogbunike Oge Ibemesi.
Other members of the committee, who couldn’t make the meeting due to distance or engagement, were officially excused. Meanwhile, further deliberation on how to make this year’s carnival a huge success continues on the committee’s private online chat room.
