Many are in shock especially in Edo state, with the Spiritual Leader of the Holy Ghost Adoration Ministry, Enugu State, Rev. Father Ejike Mbaka being credited with the following tissue of lies, titled, “Father Mbaka makes 3 Final Prophecies for 2020”.
According to the authors of the very “Fake” prophesy who sources say are domiciled inside Osadebey Avenue in Benin City, Edo state, the prophesies are: “1. Ize-Iyamu will be sentenced to jail before the end of 2020; Oshiomhole will be sacked as APC Chairman and will be charged by EFCC for fraud and, 3. Godwin Obaseki will be sworn in for a second term as Governor of Edo State by 12 Nov. 2020”.
For the avoidance of doubt, Fr. Mbaka, a Catholic priest is from Enugu, he is not from Edo State. There are even no records that any of his recent sermon, online and offline, has descended to the level of dreams or visions about EDO as a state, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, APC National Chairman Comrade Adams Oshiomhole or outgoing governor Godwin Obaseki.
For the records, the suit against Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, does not concern him alone but has the State Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Orbih and 3 others as defendants. The Federal High Court, sitting in Benin said on Monday that it will on March 26,2020 give a ruling on the competence of the suit.
As for Comrade Adams Oshiomhole his seat as National chairman of the APC is not under threat in anyway.
Nevertheless, it is the outgoing governor Obaseki who should be worried because he dreads the imminent fate that will soon befall him as far as the Edo 2020 polls is concerned hence his resort to fake predictions and prophesies. He will certainly need voodoo priests and marabouts, going forward.
To say that the outgoing governor Obaseki has been sleepless since Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu returned home to APC is stating the obvious. Worse is his rising blood pressure over the National chairman of the APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
The fake Mbaka prediction in favor of Obaseki falls flat on its face value, on many counts. How can a man who will not participate in an election be sworn in for a second term?
The Outgoing governor Obaseki knows that he has to first be the flag bearer of his party to contest, before talking of winning the election to be sworn in. There is no room for Independent candidacy as yet.
His supporters know the bleak future ahead of him and think that dragging the name of Fr Mbaka into their scam will help them. But its all fallacies.
It is therefore the highest point of rascality to credit Fr. Mbaka with a prediction he himself is unaware of. Suffice to say that in no time, the priest will do the needful on this vexatious matter.
Let’s also not forget so soon though that Mbaka’s invasion of Nigeria’s political space was perhaps through his 31st December 2014 Crossover Night Talk, titled “From Goodluck to Badluck,” in which he, openly chided the Nigeria’s former President, Goodluck Jonathan and lent open and absolute support to President Muhammadu Buhari, the-then candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Ever since Mbaka’s predictions have remained open; they have never been secrets, sent as courier packages to individuals or groups to soothe their wracked political nerves due to their own machinations like the outgoing governor of Edo state.
