Significance of Twins and Multiple Births Festival in Ebonyi State

Ebonyi Twins and Multiple Births Festival is an annual gathering of biological twins, multiples with their families and friends at Abakaliki, Ebonyi State to celebrate Twins Legacy and Heritage on 27th day of March.

The Carnival which serves as Twins Awareness Campaign equally draws twins from other twins associations and organizations in other States of Nigeria and beyond.

The essence of Ebonyi Twins and Multiple Births Festival is to pay glowing homage to twins Saviours in Ebonyi State especially Rev. Bryan William Imbush and Rev. Fr. Raymond Ifeanyichukwu Ezeonu. It is also an avenue of promotion and sustenance of their good works of salvation by empowering identified indigent twins with their families.

Ebonyi Twins and Multiple Births Association (ETAMBA) was birthed out of burning appreciation of Twins Heritage and deep love for twins and multiples. ETAMBA was inaugurated as a body on 27/03/17 at St. Theresa’s Catholic Cathedral, Abakaliki, Ebonyi State, Nigeria. The founder/initiator of ETAMBA is Godwin Chinonso Ezeaka, the Coordinating Chairman of Friends of Rev. Fr. Raymond IFEANYICHUKWU Ezeonu (FORFRIE).

In ETAMBA, twins unite purposely to share their unique experiences with their co-twins, multiples and others. What is it like to be either identical or fraternal twins, twins-related questions, opinions, concerns and fun-filled activities are also entertained. Ebonyi Twins and Multiples connect and interact with each other. From this interconnectivity, they are linked to the other organizations, associations, corporations, entrepreneurs, industries, and the general public.

The aim is to provide an authentic and a better avenue for public enlightenment on the humanity of twins, triplets, quadruplets and other multiples, as they were misunderstood to be lower human beings or animals. It is argued that they are a higher breed of humans. The authenticity of their superiority is evident in their potentialities and multi-talentedness.  Lived experiences have proven beyond doubts that twins and multiples are special gifts from God.

We are pleased to invite you to the Fourth Ebonyi Twins and Multiple Births Festival commemorating the 77th Birthday Remembrance of Rev. Fr. Raymond Ifeanyichukwu Ezeonu (27/03/1943 – 26/01/2003) holding at No. 8 Dr. Tina Nweze Street Edda Echera, Ugwuachara, Abakaliki on 27 March, 2020.
