In his address, the Club Chairman, Major General Mufutau Balogun, urged members of the Club to be mindful of the times and seasons we are. He admonished everyone to live within their means and cut their cloth according to the available materials.
The Chairman who read the nine lessons of the Carol used the occasion to appreciate the efforts of members of the Club who volunteered to be part of the Ikoyi Club Voices. He encouraged them to keep up the good work as they have performed well beyond expectations.
Balogun also had a word of appreciation for the invited band, Glorious Choir, as he eulogised their excellent renditions.
The carol ended on a merry note as the Ikoyi Club Voices rendered the popular Christmas song ‘’we wish you a merry Christmas’’ and everyone present exchange pleasantries and yuletide greetings while being treated to nice cocktail afterwards.
