In his words: “Rev. Dr. Uma Ukpai is one of the greatest gifts God gave not just to Abia State but to Nigeria and the world at large. He has been one of the great spiritual pillars of this administration, not just with prayers but with his advice and words of encouragement. “He is one man who can look you straight in the face and tell you the truth no matter how bad it hurts.
“Dr. Uma Ukpai stood by us even when others gave up on us, as a father and a spiritual leader, each time we ran to him for counseling, prayers and advice.
“Today,I join the host of heavens to celebrate this great gift to the body of Christ and the world. My prayer is that God bestows on him more Grace and Strength to continue in his mission to bring more souls to the kingdom of God”.
