Life, for the very few who understand it often postulate that it is great, and usually take every moment of their existence to enjoy it. Assuredly, this can be said of the Imo State born legal luminary, Barrister Willie Amadi who was at sometime, the most influential Special Adviser to former Governor Ikedi Ohakim, and the current Federal Complaints Commissioner.
Barrister Willie Amadi, a revered Igbo chief, after surviving a major surgery, which many unfortunately could not survive from, has more than enough cause to appreciate his Maker for giving him another opportunity to live and continue to thrive amongst the living hence the unveiling of his flamboyant 58 birthday celebration which will run uninterrupted for 8 days with the theme ‘Second Chance’.
Below is Chief Amadi’s comprehensive Order of Programme for the event in which he has invited friends and well wishers beginning on the 23rd of November at his luxuriously furnished Ajuziogu Lodge in Owerri, Imo State even as he turns 58 on the 30th of November.
The Programme reads:
As one who has exhibited immense prayers, love, loyalty to friendship, my family and I shall greatly appreciate your presence during this celebration of THANKSGIVING for God’s abiding faith in me throughout my 8-10 hrs surgery and recuperation despite my numerous sins, on the 30th, beginning from the 23rd November 2020.

It will be my life wish, to see you enjoy and celebrate happily with me while alive as there will be no public burial ceremonies when I join the triumphant saints. My internment without any clothing SHALL be strictly an immediate family affair within 24-48 hours maximum of my ascension, while a date will be fixed for the celebration of my life and times by a committee of family and friends with a trust fund already set aside.
May God Almighty Honour you, as you Honour me. His Grace is sufficient.
