As the Supreme Court today (Monday) gives its judgment over the election victory of Imo State governor, Emeka Ihedioha, Nigerians will know whether it was God or the devil that spoke to Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka when he predicted in a New Year message that Hope Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress (APC) will replace Ihedioha as governor.
Fr Ejike Mbaka, founder of Adoration Ministry, Enugu State, was quoted as saying, “I don’t know the manner the revelation will manifest but no prophecy has ever been declared on this prayer ground without coming to pass.
“In spite of all that would happen this 2020, there is hope. In Imo State, there is hope. Hope, hope, hope. Hope in Imo State. Imo people have suffered but God is raising a new hope that would be an agent of salvation for them.
“He is coming with a new flag to restore the dignity of that noble land. New leadership will break barriers and there would be joy in the land of Imo. Lift your candles as I bless Hope Uzodinma and I empower him spiritually to take over. How, I do not know.”
Six days after, following attacks on him by Ihedioha’s supporters, Mbaka boasted that his prophecy will surely come to pass.
He said, “Those who are attacking the message are just casting Pearl before swine, the holy spirit has said it, and that is final.
“I don’t know how it will happen, but the only thing is that I see hope, joy, and a new government coming in Imo state.
“Even though Ihedioha has won in tribunal and at the Appeal court, that doesn’t mean that he will triumph in supreme Court enough of all this brouhaha!
“What we are doing in adoration here is spiritual, it is not according to our power, it is holy spirit, once he reveals it, we say it.
“Ihedioha and co should go and relax. This is not unprecedented, it happened to Jonathan, Atiku and Peter Obi and after everything, my prophecy came through. You must not be the Governor of Imo state, and you are not better than Hope Uzodinma.”
Apart from the Imo governorship election, the Supreme Court will also decide those of Kano and Sokoto states, where Abdullahi Ganduje and Aminu Tambuwal will know their fates over their respective election victories.
