The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN in Imo State, have attacked Catholic Priest, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, over his prophecy that Hope Uzodinma will eventually be declared winner of Imo election, thereby unseating Governor Emeka Ihedioha.
The Enugu cleric, who is known for controversial prophecies, in his New Year message, said Senator Hope Uzodimma would be sworn in as governor of Imo State.
He was quoted as saying,
“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’s coming with a new flag to restore the dignity of that noble land. A new leadership that 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 to, spiritually, to take over. How, I do not know.
“Please, if you heard that there would be a new government in Imo and you don’t like the message; if I say Hope, you can say hopeless but do not fight me.
But reacting, CAN leader, Senior Apostle Godson Ibeji, said that Mbaka’s prophecy was politically motivated, Daily Trust reports.
