Popular gospel artistes like Mercy Chinwo, Chioma Jesus and Sammy Okposo, among others, thrilled the audience with good music.
The Rev. Ugo-Ngadi, an astute business woman and quintessential player in the downstream sector of the oil and gas industry, was on August 22, 2021 ordained into the priesthood of the Methodist Church Nigeria in a ceremony officiated by the Prelate of the Methodist Church Nigeria, His Eminence Dr. Samuel Kanu Uche, at the Hoares Memorial Cathedral Herbert Macaulay Way Yaba Lagos.
The celebrant is known by many as an experienced business leader and silent philanthropist.
Guests at the reception indicated that Rev. Ada has for years catered for widows and helped drug addicts recover with many indigent persons on her monthly payroll as a way of giving back to the society and service to God.
She was also said to be investing in medical facilities, rehabilitation centres and feeding programmes in different locations.
Speaker after speaker extolled the virtues of the newly ordained priest of the Methodist Church, saying her ordination was long overdue and deserving.
One of them narrated how Reverend Adaoha helped sponsor church building projects and several evangelistic outreaches, irrespective of denomination.
“She deserves this ordination because she loves God and always supports the work of God,” she said.
