The Imo State Governor, Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha has said he is unperturbed about the New Year prophecy of the Spiritual Director of the Adoration Ministry , Enugu, Revd . Fr . Ejike Mbaka .
The Catholic priest had prophesied that the All Progressives Congress governorship candidate at the March 9 , 2019, governorship election in Imo State , Senator Hope Uzodinma , would become the governor of the state this year .
The cleric had said , “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 .
“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 is 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 , take over . How? I do not know .”
But the Imo State Commissioner for Information , Felix Ebiliekwe , who spoke to pressmen in Owerri , the state capital on Thursday , dismissed Mbaka ’s prophecy .
The information commissioner said neither the governor nor his ( governor ’s) aides and appointees were disturbed by the cleric ’s prophecy.
Ebilikwe said apart from the fact that Uzodinma , coming a distant fourth at the polls , his petitions at the Election Petitions Tribunal and his appeal at the Court of Appeal against the declaration of Ihedioha , as the governor of the state by the Independent National Electoral Commission , were “summarily dismissed.
The commissioner said , “ The governor is not disturbed . The government and people of Imo State are not disturbed .
Imo has been liberated and the governor is busy at a very fast pace rebuilding the state .
“Senator Hope Uzodinma ’s petition at the court of first instance , the Elections Petitions Tribunal was dismissed . His appeal at the Court of Appeal was thrown out for lacking in merit .
“The Supreme Court will equally do the same because there will not be any fresh evidences to be filed .
“I will suggest to Revd . Fr . Mbaka to face his spiritual calling and leave politics alone ; Imo is in safe hands .
“The things the governor has been able to do in seven months have shown and is very clear to the blind that Imo is being rebuilt . The governor is not disturbed by the priest ’s prophecy. ”
