Hon. Isreal Sunny-Goli, who is the chief host of the programme, while confirming the activities for the programme yesterday in Yenagoa during the pre-event briefing of the Brass Ultimate Praise Night slated for Friday, 15th December, 2017 at the St. Barnabas School Field in Twon Brass, Bayelsa State,said the programme is a Christian affair not political rally.
Sunny-Goli, denied the claims by some politicians in the State that the December 15th Brass Ultimate Gospel Night praise in Brass Island ,Brass Local Government area of the State is organised by the All Progressive Congress (APC).
According to Sunny-Igoli, though the Brass Ultimate Gospel Night is organised by all the Christian Leaders in Brass Local Government Council in partnership with him as the member of the constituency at the State House of Assembly, the Gospel festival is not a partisan canival but one targeted to fulfil a promise he had with God
He said as against the misperception of some persons, which of course has been expected, the praise night is not organized to champion any political cause, but principally to glorify the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.”
According to him, “It might interest you to know that couple of months ago, I promised God that I will organize a programme of this magnitude to honour Him for His interminable providence and protection upon my life, my family and all those who associate with me. The Brass Ultimate Praise Night is therefore, a fulfillment of that solemn promise.
“It remains my unwavering faith that as we take praise to new heights on the 15th of December, we shall encounter divine renewal, reformation and revitalization of our spirit, soul and body. And that Brass Island and indeed Bayelsa State will never remain the same again.”
Sunny-Goli, who was with Chief Nengi Ayerite, Head of Publicity, Chief Feliks Siese,Secetary Central Working Committee and John Okhai, PRO,Central Working Committee, said “I want to assure those who have security concerns to not fret, as adequate security arrangements have already been made to protect every guest to and from Brass.Let me categorically state here that the waterways will be utterly secured and the praise night will be a huge success, hence there is no cause for alarm.”
“Come let us together worship the merciful, gracious God that seats on the highest throne. Come let us together praise the name of God with songs, and magnify Him with thanksgiving just like King David did (Psalm: 69:30).”
