The first session of the praise was held to celebrate the administration of President Buhari, the Chaplain said.
“A year after that event, and just a few days ago, we received with cheerful hearts the good news that we are now officially out of recession.
“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.”
The 400 hours non-stop event which is scheduled to commence on Thursday, “will arguably be the longest non-musical activity in the world.” The Chaplain stated.
