Some Nigerians have described Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka as a true man of God after the Supreme Court sacked Emeka Ihedioha of the PDP and announced the APC candidate, Hope Uzodinma, as the winner of the Imo governorship election, just as the cleric predicted days before.
Rev Mbaka had on Tuesday, December 31, during his passover night predicted that the APC will take over the leadership from the PDP-led administration of Ihedioha.
The cleric had said he could not explain how it would happen but insisted that his prophecy would come to pass.
However, many Nigerians did not take the prediction seriously; even Ihedioha in his reaction had said he was not perturbed about the prophecy, stating that the cleric had made himself a laughing stock for making such a statement.
But all that changed shortly after the Supreme Court voided the election of Ihedioha as the governor of Imo state and unanimously declared Uzodinma as the winner of the March 9, 2019, governorship election and the validly elected governor of the state.
Father Ejike Mbaka began to trend on social media immediately news filtered that Hope Uzodinma of the APC was returned as the duly elected governor of the state by the Supreme Court.
Many Nigerians surprised by the accuracy of the cleric’s prediction hailed him as a true man of God.
Some persons highlighted past predictions of Mbaka to back the argument that the cleric's predictions were always accurate.
One person said Mbaka's prediction was evidence that he is a true man of God.
Others, however, reacted to the cleric's prediction with humour by demanding to see him for personal favours.
Another Twitter user asked Mbaka to use his prophecies for the benefit of Nigeria.
Meanwhile, the newly-declared governor of Imo state, Senator Hope Uzodinma, has reacted to his victory at the Supreme Court.
Uzodinma, 61, who spoke through his media aide, Declan Emelumba, said that his stolen mandate has been restored by the apex court.
Emelumba revealed that the new governor will arrive Imo tomorrow and address the people of the state upon his arrival.
