From the depth of my heart, I thank the Holy Family Group of St. Martins Catholic Church for training us in this marching band dance.
To my fellow women at I.D.T.U. Aba branch, I thank you for making me your chairlady, supporting me and I will never disappoint you. You are women of substance. Ndi nne mama!
I want to use this time to thank my vice and other executives and every member of I.D.T.U. Women’s Wing Aba branch, you are too much.
All our guest, friends and well wishers, I and my fellow women thank you for honouring our invitation and supporting this project.
Iho Dimeze Town Union Women’s Meeting is the union of Iho Dimeze married women living in Aba. Here we are taught to be Godly role models, good wives to our husbands and caring mothers to our children.
ZION DAUGHTERS MARCHING BAND is a Godly dance that we women use to entertain lives. This dance also gives us the opportunity to exercise our bodies and be healthy. Every occasion that we are invited to, this dance adds color and life to it. We intend to take this dance to local and international events thereby bringing glory and good name to the people of Iho Dimeze.
May I use this medium to commend Mrs. Bernadette Chukwuoha for pioneering the idea of this marching band; this is a Godly dance that the barren dances and gives birth to children. The sick dances it and get healed. Those who are troubled in their hearts dance it and have peace and joy.
Our aim of unveiling this marching band today is that we want to showcase some of the good things we do to the public. We want to buy a coaster bus and other stuff that will help us make more positive impact in our community. We truly ask for your financial support today and pray that the good Lord will keep elevating you.
We also desire to buy a land that we can erect residential building on it and rent it out to make income in order to support and finance our visionary community development projects.
In all these, I thank God that you are here today and as you rejoice and launch this project with us, God will prosper all your good works. Please we have refreshments for you, sit down and enjoy this great occasion.
To God Almighty, we thank you for the strength and vision that you have given us and dear Lord, we are grateful!
Ndi Iho Dimeze, our guests, friends and well wishers, ekele m unu, thank you for making this occasion successful; God bless you all!
I remain your wife,
Mrs. Georgenia C. Onuoha
