– Christian groups will on Thursday, September 14, commence a 400 hours non-stop praise and worship programme
– The programme is being organized under the leadership of Chaplain of Aso Villa Chapel, in collaboration with Full Gospel Businessmen Fellowship and other churches under the aegis of “Haleluyah Nigeria”
– The event is to mark the exit of Nigeria from recession and to thank God for President Buhari‘s safe return
To celebrate President Muhammadu Buhari’s recovery after over 100 days of medical vacation in the UK, Halleluyah Nigeria, in conjunction with Nigerian churches and the Full Gospel Business Men Fellowship, will on Thursday, September 14, commence a 400 hours non-stop praise and worship.
NAIJ.com gathered that the programme will also celebrate Nigeria’s exit from recession and mark the 57th independence anniversary of the country on October 1.
The programme will kick off on September 14 at 8am and will end at midnight to usher in October 1, with over 140 church choirs and several gospel artistes will be part of the event
In 2016, the group held 365 hours of “non-stop” praise to mark the first anniversary of Buhari and seek God’s help for the administration and the country to overcome the economic recession.
The chaplain of Aso Rock Villa Chapel, Oluseyi Malomo, said the first 343 hours of 16-day programme will take place at Sharon Ultimate Hotel in Abuja while the last 57 hours will be held at the National Christian Center.
Funding comes from voluntary donations from individuals and members of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), he said.
He said: “The spirit of appreciation is the motive behind this event. We are taught in all our cultures and faiths the principle of thanksgiving, to show appreciation for good deeds done to us. This is because appreciation enhances more benevolence towards him who is appreciative.
“Let us all be appreciative to God who has not just kept us together for these 57 years, but has blessed our nation with such resources of enviable potential of land, minerals and great and resourceful people.
“With such attitude, our nation shall continue to wax stronger, take her rightful place in the comity of nations and shall soon become the toast of the world.”
According to an earlier report by NAIJ.com, the President of the Republic of Namibia, Dr. Hage Geingob, had expressed happiness over the news that President Muhammadu Buhari was recuperating fast in London.
Geingob made this known when Ambassador Lilian Onoh, daughter of former Governor of Old Anambra State, Chief C. C. Onoh, presented her Letter of Credence to the president as Nigeria’s High Commissioner to Namibia.
