On New Year’s eve, fiery Catholic priest and the Spiritual Director of the Adoration Ministry in Enugu, Rev Father Ejike Mbaka, delivered a prophetic message that shook the country. He said President Goodluck Jonathan would fail in the presidential election.
Why did Mbaka say so? He had told the world that the Holy Spirit told him Goodluck Jonathan was not favoured to continue as president going by the state of the Nigerian economy and widespread insecurity, which he had failed to contain.
Soon, a controversy ensued and tongues started to wag about the message of the priest, more so as the First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, had only visited the Adoration Ground in Enugu last November.
A confidant of Father Mbaka and Media Chief of the Adoration Ministry, Mr Maximus Ike Ugwuoke, a lawyer, told Sunday Sun that President Jonathan has himself to blame as he took the word of the Holy Spirit delivered by Mbaka for granted.
According to Ugwuoke, Mbaka had a huge burden placed on him after the visit of the First Lady when one of the doves released refused to fly until the message became clear to him that the Holy Spirit had rejected the president.
He said Mbaka made several moves to reach the president so as to see what could be done, but the presidency shut the door at him.
Instead, he said, what the man of God got was a threat to his life.
Ugwuoke said when so many people doubted the fulfillment of the prophecy on grounds that Jonathan would ride on the power of incumbency to defeat General Muhammudu Buhari, Mbaka knew it was all over for him (Jonathan).
The media chief disclosed that on the Sunday preceding the presidential election, Mbaka had burst into victory songs, which he had not sung for a very long time.
Ugwuoke in this exclusive interview with Sunday Sun gave graphic details on what transpired during the First Lady’s visit to the Adoration Ground, the prophecy of Jonathan’s fall, the challenges the prophecy brought to the ministry and why Nigerians should listen to the words of genuine men of God.
