From what started as a small prayer team in the 1960s, the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star is now a colossus with about two million members from various parts of the globe, all of the holding on to the teachings of the wizened old man from Biakpan. Silently but steadily, the BCS has been gaining ground and its membership rank keeps swelling. Today, there are units of the BCS that deals with hospitality, publishing, catering, tailoring and even intercontinental business. Some aristocrats in the Cross River society are also members of BCS and this has greatly assisted in boosting the profile of the organization.

While he was alive, OOO paid serious attention to the welfare of his subjects, building shelter for the unemployed and destitute in addition to providing a center for the handicapped and giving out vast sums to charitable efforts. Today, the BCS still continues the tradition. No doubt, no one knows what lies in future for the Brotherhood but so far, they have carried their cross calmly, and whether their star will dim or not, only time can tell.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR TIME.

ABIYAMO.
