Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is expected to lead other top government officials on 400 hours non-stop praise to God towards the celebration of the 57th Independence Anniversary of the country.
“As if putting icing on the cake, the news came after the whole nation joyfully received the return of our dearest President.
“God only for us to gather together and return our thanks praise to this who responds and answers the heartfelt prayers of all Nigerians.
“The Hallelujah Nigeria in conjunction with all churches and fellowships in Nigeria are therefore organizing this exceptional and record breaking praise event to thank this good God who has proven that He holds our Nation dearest to His heart.”
According to him, the 400 hours non-stop event which is scheduled to commence on Thursday,”will arguably be the longest non musical activity in the world.”
Responding to a question on the level of participation in the programme by government, he said it was not unlikely that even though Buhari is not a Christian, he may show up at the event.
However, he revealed that just like the last edition, Osinbajo is expected to lead other top government officials to the event.
While noting that the event was open to all Nigerians, the Chaplain added: “The spirit of appreciation is the motive behind this event.
“We are taught in all our cultures and faith, the principle of thanksgiving, to show appreciation for good deeds done to us.
“This is because appreciation enhances more benevolence towards he 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 potentials of land, minerals and great and resourceful people.
“With such, our nation shall continue to wax stronger, taken her rightful place in the comity of nations and shall soon become the toast of the world.”
