Ukpai Set To Build 120,000 Capacity Church Auditorium in Abia State
Tele-Evangelist, Dr Uma Ukpai has embarked on the construction of a multi billion naira Prayer City Centre at Isiugwu-Ohafia, in Ohafia Local Government Area of Abia State.
When the 120,000 capacity magnificent prayer city is completed, it would be known as Greater Ohafia for Christ City, while the grounds accommodating the sprawling auditorium, would be called Uma Ukpai Prayer Cathedral.
Disclosing this while performing the ground breaking ceremony at Ohafia, Dr. Uma Ukpai said on completion, the project would become the largest prayer auditorium in Nigeria, going by its capability to accommodate 120,000 persons during crusades, prayers and other gospel events to be held there.
The Uma Ukpai Prayer City, he said, would comprise auditorium, lodges, car parks, access roads and other mindboggling structures.
To ensure quality delivery, the man of God said the project will be handled by a reputable Italian building construction firm, Habitat Universal Concept Limited; with Fabrizio Cardilo as the project contractor and Signor Ndubueze C. Kanu as the country director.
“The land,” Ukpai noted, “would serve as a place where God will reconcile repented sinners unto himself.”
A major donor to the project, Emeka Oke Nmaju, who donated 371 plots of land to the Greater Ohafia for Christ project, described Dr Uma Ukpai as a selfless servant of God.
