The Enugu Catholic, Rev Father Ejike Mbaka, on Sunday, February 16, has rebutted a purported prophecy, report in some social media alleging that he predicted the new Bayelsa governor will stay only two months in office.
The cleric denied the rumour during the Sunday sermon at the Adoration ground, Emene, Enugu.
Recalled on social media had “ Rev. Father Mbaka of the Adoration Ministry in Enugu, came out with the prophecy that the newly sworn in Governor of Bayelsa State, Gov Diri, would be removed from office in two months.
“Mbaka at an event in Delta State had said that the office of the Governor of Bayelsa State does not belong to Diri or the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), saying that another man is coming after two months to take over the office.
“Diri of the PDP became Governor of Bayelsa State after the Supreme Court nullified the election of Lyon of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
But in a reaction to Mbaka, saying he has never at any time, place or circumstance made any prophecy about Bayelsa or who becomes the Governor of the state or his duration in office.
He describes the report as malicious, the handwork of mischief makers and wicked individuals who are on demonic and satanic assignment to damage his reputation, Mbaka, warned them to deceased else they would attract the wrath of God upon themselves.
In a statement signed by Mbaka’s Media and Publicity Secretary of Adoration Ministry, Barrister Ike Maximus Ugwuoke, said;
“Our attention has been drawn to report in a section of the media that spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Fr. Mbaka has prophesied that the newly sworn-in Governor of Bayelsa State, Diri Douye will stay in office as Governor for only two months
The report alleged that he predicted this in “Delta state at the ceremony to mark his friend and colleague who clocked 68 years.
“For the sake of justice and fairness, we challenge the originators of this false and mendacious report to mention the name of the so-called Fr Mbaka’s friend and colleague whose ceremony he attended in Delta State. The truth is that Fr Mbaka has not even been in Delta since this year.
“Fr Mbaka has been preoccupied with the charitable and miraculous works God has been using him to do in the ministry. He has been immersed in thanksgiving to God for the fulfilment of his prophecy on Hope Uzodimma becoming the Governor of Imo State and so he never attended any such ceremony in Delta State or anywhere else where he could have made such prediction as alleged by these satanic agents.
“During Fr Mbaka’s Sunday mass today, he refuted this report himself publicly at the altar. Those who impersonate Fr Mbaka in the media should be careful else they are attracting the wrath of God upon themselves,” The statement reads.
