Imo Crisis: Hope Uzodinma No Longer Picks My Calls – Father Mbaka

Catholic Priest and Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Rev. Fr Ejike Mbaka, has accused Imo Governor Hope Uzodinma of shunning him.

In his 2020 New Year message, the cleric had said Uzodimma of the All Progressives Congress (APC), a former senator, would be sworn in as governor.

“Despite 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 said.

Emeka Ihedioha of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) was the incumbent when Mbaka gave the prediction. Imo elders in the party dismissed the prophecy.

Weeks after, the Supreme Court, in a unanimous decision, ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to issue Uzodinma a certificate of return (CoR).

Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun, who read the judgement, stated that the APC candidate won because he polled the majority of the lawful votes cast at the election.

Mbaka has disclosed that since Uzodinma assumed power, he has not answered his phone calls.

The clergyman also told the people that the governor was also yet to return to the church to show appreciation.

“It’s not that I’m asking for money; it’s that I should advise him for good governance,” Mbaka said.
