How did Ayo Oritsejafor become a priest? 

Surprisingly,Ayo Oritsejafor's age is missing in all his biography posts.I don't know why he is not revealing his age ,but we know he was born on November.
While in college the Lord showed him a vision of himself preaching to countless thousands of people with great power and authority and he heard the Lord say “Take my Word to the World". According to his words, in 1972 “the Lord saved and miraculously delivered him during a crusade”. Almost immediately, he “felt the call of God upon his life” and enrolled in the New Covenant Bible Institute, Benin City, Nigeria.However there is another version of this story so we don;t know which came first,the egg or the chick.While talking about how he turned his life around,Pastor Ayo said....

I grew up and went my own way and lived my own life and got into a lot of vices, a lot of things that were not right. I have told people that if there is any bad thing that anybody could do in this world, I did it.At my age and at my level in life, these are things that we are not proud of and will not want to give these things  prominence, but I was into so many wrong things. I leave the rest to your imagination. Yes, this was the life I lived......
I remember one day, I was walking along Marina in Lagos, very sad, I couldn’t explain why. You know, when you live on the wrong side of life for a while, that  is how you feel. But even the worst human beings you see today on the street, no matter how bad they look, they still have soft spots. That  night, around 9.00 p.m., I was walking along Marina then, Marina was Marina and not the one you have today. There have been a lot of changes. Tears started rolling down my cheeks and I started praying, well, should I really call it a prayer? It wasn’t a prayer as such. I said, ‘God, if you are God, do something and change me, I cannot continue with this kind of life’. Three months later, I came home, to Sapele, because my mother was here and one night somebody gave me a handbill inviting me to a crusade. I just didn’t think I was one of those that should be invited to a crusade because I wasn’t that kind. But I went to the crusade and I heard the Word of God preached by the late Archbishop Benson Idahosa and that turned around my life. For the first time, something touched me. That was when I gave my life to Christ, and my life changed 360 degrees.
So for now it is unclear which experience came first,the Marina experience or while he was in college where he saw the vision from the lord.But i am guessing that it was when he turned his life around that he enrolled at the college and saw the vision.
