The Spiritual Leader of Uma UKpai Evangelistic Association (UUEA), Rev. Uma Ukpai in a video on YouTube has narrated the drama that played out between him and his wife, Philomena Uma Ukpai, when he rejected a 13 billion Naira gift from a man he encountered some years back.

Rev. Dr. Uma Ukpai from the video: “My wife shocked me when she said hold my hand and ask God not to allow me have heart attack because of the things you say. I prayed as she requested from me.

“The next day, we were lying on the bed when my phone rang and when I picked the call, the person said 7 years ago, you prayed for me in Lagos when I was hopeless and extremely poor. He said he looked into my eyes and proclaimed to be the 7th richest man in Nigeria.

“I have become one, and this great God has asked me to give you 13 billion Naira. I said to the young man you didn’t hear well, God did not ask you to give me 13 billion but 1 billion. Keep your 12 billion Naira, just give me 1 billion Naira.

“My wife protested and asked me that with all this your education, you don’t know that 12 billion is bigger than 1 billion. I told her that it is not how much the young man wants to give, but how much God wants me to take. she still insisted that I take the money, but I told her to go to bed.”

Meanwhile, the Reverend also added that a man also came to him to ask him why he was afraid of too much money. “I told him I am not afraid of too much money, but I don’t want to hurt God by taking what He has not asked me to take”, Rev. Dr. Uma Ukpai said.
