No re­grets for 2015 prophecy – Fr. Mbaka

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Tony Adibe, Enugu

Enugu Catholic Priest and Spir­i­tual Di­rec­tor of the Ado­ra­tion Min­istry, Enugu, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, says he does not re­gret his 2015 ‘change proph­esy’ re­gard­less of the cur­rent hard­ship Nige­ri­ans are pass­ing through.

The priest had pre­dicted the de­feat of former Pres­i­dent Good­luck Jonathan in the pres­i­den­tial elec­tions, and de­scribed as base­less claims by cer­tain peo­ple that he fell out with Jonathan over the former pres­i­dent’s re­fusal of his said re­quest for oil block.

Mbaka who spoke through his me­dia aide, Bar­ris­ter Max­imus Ug­wuoke, on ac­tiv­i­ties to mark his 21 years of pri­estly or­di­na­tion an­niver­sary, said he had also on sev­eral oc­ca­sions re­leased prophe­cies on hard times.

He said, “Be­fore Buhari took over, the dol­lar was ris­ing, there was al­ready prob­lem with our econ­omy.ý The pre­vi­ous govern­ment had oil boom but never saved; just wasted the op­por­tu­nity. Even the suf­fer­ing we are talk­ing about was part of my proph­e­sies. I re­call that on 31st of Jan­uary this year, I said that Nige­ri­ans should brace up for hard times. This suf­fer­ing Nige­ri­ans are pass­ing through is a process of change. I’m see­ing a great fu­ture for Nige­ri­ans.”

On his proph­esy that former Enugu Gover­nor, Dr. Chi­maroke Nna­mani would not win sec­ond term as gover­nor, Ug­wuoke gave rea­sons for the fail­ure ýof the proph­esy, em­pha­sis­ing that peo­ple who said that the the cur­rent pre­dic­tion was a fail­ure didn’t know what hap­pened.

He said, “It is true that Mbaka said Chi­maroke will not come back; but af­ter that proph­esy, the Church au­thor­ity man­dated him to cel­e­brate a mass of for­give­ness for Chi­maroke. He cel­e­brated that mass; re­mem­ber it is God that an­swers prayers. So, the mass of for­give­ness, which he cel­e­brated un­der the man­date of the dio­cese is the main rea­son why the proph­esy did not come to pass.”

Ug­wuoke said Mbaka would be cel­e­brated as he marked his 21 years in min­istry, ex­plain­ing, “We shall be cel­e­brat­ing him this week. He is mark­ing 21 years of a mirac­u­lous life; 21 years of proph­e­sies that have man­i­fested - the change proph­esy, the oil doom and all that. He is also cel­e­brat­ing 21 years of charity.”
