The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has announced plans to hold a 77 hours praise marathon to celebrate the 77th birthday of its General Overseer, Pastor Enoch Adeboye.
The church's National Music Director, Kunle Ajayi, a pastor, revealed this at a press conference held at the Redemption Camp, on Sunday.
Mr Ajayi said the event, tagged 'Jesus the Light of the World', would not only celebrate the cleric but open up Nigeria to a new vista.
The programme is scheduled for February 25 to 28 at the Youth Centre, Redemption Camp, Lagos-Ibadan Express Way.
"This is a giant step in our quest to bring 'Marathon Messiah's Praise' to the doorstep of every living being on the planet," he said.
Mr Ajayi sais to ensure a hitch-free programme, over 5,000 people have registered to volunteer in various departments and in other various key sectors of the programme across the participating countries.
"Over 120,000 live participants are expected to be in attendance with over 10 million viewers expected to watch the event on TV and social media channels.
"This year's Marathon Messiah's Praise will be the greatest in its series and we are confident that as we praise the Great Redeemer, He will do something new in Nigeria.
"As we are coming towards the electioneering time, God is going to give Nigerians good and credible leaders.
"There will be a harvest of souls, miracles, signs and wonders, restoration, peace, progress and divine intervention across the globe," he said.
Some of the participating countries, according to him, include Nigeria, United States of America, Canada, England, Australia, Spain, Scotland, United Arab Emirates, Brazil, Israel and Zambia.
Other countries are Cameroon, Kenya, Netherlands, Sweden, Malaysia, South Africa, Ukraine, Ghana, New Zealand and Ireland.
