Mbaka has been in the news all week for a New Year’s eve prophecy he issued from the pulpit concerning the Imo governorship election.
The Catholic priest had declared that Hope Uzodinma of the APC would emerge governor of Imo and that Emeka Ihedioha of the PDP was going to be deposed.
On Tuesday, January 14, 2020, the prophecy did come to pass, with the Supreme Court voiding the election that anointed Ihedioha as governor and declaring Uzodinma duly elected winner of the March 9, 2019 vote.
‘To God be the glory’
In a statement issued by his spokesperson, Maximus Ugwuoke, as a response to the developments in Imo, Mbaka said he handed out 40 prophecies on New Year’s Eve but the only one that went viral was that of Uzodinma.
“Uzodinma becoming the governor of Imo was just a part of the about 40 prophetic prayers Fr. Mbaka made on December 31. But that became the only issue people satanically picked against him,” the statement read in parts.
“God has vindicated Fr. Mbaka as He has always done for Fr. Mbaka and adoration ministry in all the battles, vituperation and attacks the ministry had faced in the past. To God be the glory.”

Mbaka added that the unraveling of the prophecy is proof that he’s a truly anointed man of God.
The statement further stated that the fact that the judgment was a unanimous one from the Supreme Court’s seven justices is sufficient proof that God was behind it all.
“We are not all gifted alike, Fr. Mbaka’s prophetic gift should be a source of pride for the Catholic Church and indeed all true Christians as a living evidence of divine presence within the Church. As a lawyer, I tell you that there are double fold angles to this miracle.
“One is the miraculous resuscitation of Hope Uzodinma from the far away position he was placed in the election result announced by INEC in Imo State. The second is the unanimous confirmation of the seven Justices of the Supreme Court (without a dissent view) that Uzodinma was the rightful winner of the election”, he added.

Mbaka had prophesied as follows: “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.”
Uzodinma has since received his certificate of return from the electoral commission, with Ihedioha declaring that the Supreme Court judgment was an unfair and unjust one that trampled on the wishes of the people.
