“I was busy applauding the other people as they received their awards. Then suddenly I heard them reading a profile that sounded like mine. I looked around to be sure I wasn’t mistaken, then I heard: ‘all the way from Nigeria let’s make welcome and there was my name! God has been busy surprising my life with goodies but I think this is one of greatest surprises I’ve got in recent times,” she enthused.
Other awardees at the event included Bishop Simeon Agbolabari, Ken Rawlings, Bola Kwentua, Sam Kolawole, Chinye Keshi, Chinonye Azuonye, Joshua Amzat, Kingsley Ike and others.
