Federal Poly Nekede Organizes Carnival of Arts and Culture for Staff and Students
By Mbagwu Amarachi Chilaka
The management of Federal Polytechnic Nekede has organized a Carnival of Arts and Culture for the staff and students of the school with the first day (Day 1) of the breathtaking event termed The Founders Day and the second day termed The Carnival of Arts and Culture. This is the second time the carnival will be organised by the institution. The first day was successfully completed under the direction of Dr. N.C Anumihe, who is regarded as a great writer and Orator by students of Federal Polytechnic Nekede Owerri and beyond.
The founder’s day held inside the 1000 Capacity beside the school library and it was a sight to behold as the stage was caressed by the foots of the the great speakers who gave lectures in the persons of the Rector, Mrs Ugochi Njoku, a great woman, the Deputy Rector, and Builder John Duru.
The pupils of the Assumpta primary school Owerri brought to the minds of the participants memories of the late Legend, Madiba Nelson Mandela through the Zulu song and the late Brenda Fassie’s Vulindulela that they danced to. They did the Ballet dance too. The Central School Nekede and the pupils of the Polytechnic’s staff school also displayed great acrobatics.
The Bleeding Pen Literary Society Federal Polytechnic Nekede performed a heart breaking mime by the title ‘Someone Somewhere’ written by Mbagwu Amarachi Chilaka. The mime left the audience in a melancholic state and pity. The camera captured the Rector as she shook her head in sadness during the performance.
The main Carnival, that is, the Day 2 of the Carnival will kick off tomorrow, 19th February 2016 at the Federal Polytechnic Nekede’s mini stadium where each department in the school will come to showcase their God given talents. The most creative department would go home with the first prize. First and second runner up prizes will also be given to winners.
