Church Events are Nigeria’s Biggest Source Of Tourists – NTDC
It has been asserted by the Nigerian Tourism Development Commission that the biggest form of tourism in Nigeria is as a result of Church programs every end of year in Nigeria bringing social and economic benefits to Nigeria as a nation.
Some of the major events that have led to this mass movement of people into the country are The Experience, a Christian concert, Holy Ghost Congress, the largest gathering of humans in Africa, Shiloh, Deeper Life Bible Retreat as well as many other ministries all over Nigeria.
Here are the mind boggling figures from Shiloh 2017, a program held by Living Faith Church aka Winners’ Chapel as presented by the First Vice President, Bishop David Abioye:
54 Nations in total were at Shiloh 2017.
Among them were delegates from Yemen, Ukraine, UAE, Costa Rica, US, UK, Australia and many others while 150 nations were connected online.
The highest number of delegates came from Ghana with 950 delegates. Others were Benin Republic-767, Togo-354, United Kingdom-295, Cameroon-252, Côte d’Ivoire-247, USA-206 and Kenya-161 among others.
In the 5000+ branches in Nigeria alone, there were a minimum of 1 million people gathered worshipping online while in Lagos and environs alone, there were over 110 viewing centers with over 100,000 people connected and that apart from Canaanland with well over 250,000 present.
Also, Tens of Thousands were also gathered in over 1000 branches around the world with millions gathered around their personal computers exceeding the 7 million on the same platform in 2016.
Also, Tanzania holds her 56th independence anniversary today and it was celebrated with prayers as members of the Tanzanian Church stood up dancing and rejoicing as shown on the screen as prayers were made for the nation previously led by the late great nationalist, Mwalimu Julius Nyerere, from all over the world.
