Traditional rulers in Aguleri, Anambra State where this year’s edition of Gulder Ultimate Search will take place, have received the GUS team as they pledged their support for the show.
The royal fathers expressed their joy that the show would be hosted in their community this year.
Eze Chukwuemeka Eri said, “It is heart-warming for me that a popular brand like Gulder, manufactured by Nigerian Breweries has chosen to associate with Aguleri, the ancestral home of the Igbos. We are not only thankful to them, but also welcome this gesture wholeheartedly.”
The monarch went further to assure the GUS Team that the community would ensure they have a hitch free stay in Aguleri and pledged the support of the entire community in hosting the programme. He emphatically told the team that after this first experience, the team would definitely want to come back to Aguleri for another edition.
He however appealed to Nigerian Breweries to see to it that their sons and daughters are included in the Search to further give the community a chance of bringing the star prize to Aguleri.
Another traditional ruler, Eze Christopher NwabunwanneIdigo, the Ogalagidi and Igwe of Aguleri, thanked the GUS team for their visit, saying, “In every society, youths are the catalysts for advancement and I really commend the Nigerian Breweries for coming up with such a youth empowerment initiative and for considering our community suitable enough to host it this year.” (Punch)
