Could you tell us about yourself, family, career, and ministry?
I was born as the fifth child in a family of seven; my father was the late Chief Paul Ameh Osayi. I was born into a Christian home and I remember giving my life to Christ at the age of seven in ECWA 1, Barracks Road, Makurdi, during a Sunday school class.
How did you move from being born again Christian to becoming a preacher of the gospel?
Even though my discipline is in the line of Chemistry, I was sure about my call at the age of 12 or 13 when I had a series of encounters with God and I began to work towards it from that time

You seem to have the power to unlock the word of God with so much depth and accuracy in your preachings. How did you come about that particular gift?
Well, I trace my teaching ability to the great impartation I received while serving under Reverend Pita Momoh Edwards of Sanctuary of Mercy.
