The Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry and Catholic Prisst, Enugu, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka has accused the Governor of Imo state, Hope Uzodinma of shunning him.
Recall that in Mbaka 2020 New Year Message, the cleric explained that Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress (APC) would be sworn in as governor in the state.
The message read in part, “Despite 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.
The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Emeka Ihedioha was the incumbent governor in the state when Mbaka gave the prediction. However, Imo elders in the party dismissed the prophecy.
Few weeks after the revelation, the Supreme Court, in a unanimous decision, ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to issue a certificate of return to the candidate of the APC, Hope Uzodinma.
Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun who gave the judgement explained that Uzodinma won because available evidences shows that he polled the majority of the lawful votes cast in the election.
Expressing dissatisfaction, Mbaka disclosed that since Uzodinma assumed office as the governor, he has not answered his phone call and stressed further saying that the governor was also yet to 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 in a report by DailyPost.
