Controversial Catholic Priest and Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Rev. Fr Ejike Mbaka, has accused Imo Governor Uzodinma of ignoring him in recent times.
Recall that in his 2020 New Year message, the popular cleric had ‘prophesied’ that Uzodimma of the All Progressives Congress (APC), a former Senator, would be sworn in as governor.
‘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 said back then.
Emeka Ihedioha of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) was the incumbent when Mbaka gave the prediction. Imo elders in the party dismissed the ‘prophecy’.
Interestingly weeks later, the Supreme Court, in an unanimous decision, ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to issue Uzodinma a certificate of return (CoR).
However, things has taken a different turn as Mbaka has disclosed that since Uzodinma assumed power, he has not answered his phone calls.
The clergyman also told the people that the governor also yet return to the church to show appreciation.
‘It’s not that I’m asking for money, it’s that I should advise him for good governance’, Mbaka said while speaking to journalists on Sunday.
Father Mbaka predicted President Muhammadu Buhari’s victory against former President Goodluck Jonathan during his 2015 New Year message.
