Following the Apex court ruling nullifying Governor of Imo Emeka Ihedioha's victory in the last gubernatorial election in the state, without mincing words, the New Year prophecy of Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka seems to have come to fruition.
The Supreme Court on Tuesday sacked Governor Emeka Ihedioha from office and declared Senator Hope Uzodinma as the validly elected governor of Imo state.
Recall Vanguard reported how Mbaka of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, had in his 2020 New Year message prophesied that Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress (APC) will “take over” power from the incumbent Governor Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the year 2020.
Iheadioha’s tenure ordinarily would have elapsed in 2023.
The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Imo State chapter, had slammed Mbaka over the prophecy, saying it was opposed to “politically motivated prophesies”
In his prophecy, Mbaka revealed: “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,” the cleric had said, adding, “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 added that, “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.”
Ihedioha had been declared winner of the governorship election after polling 273,404 votes ahead of his closest rival Uche Nwosu of the Action Alliance (AA) who got 190,364 votes in the poll.
