Enugu – Enugu Catholic Priest, the Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, on Sunday, said that despite the suffering and hardship which Nigerians face today, he would not regret his 2015 prophecy of change in which he predicted the defeat of former President Goodluck Jonathan.

Mbaka again dismissed as baseless claims that he fell apart with Jonathan over the latter’s refusal of his request for oil well.

The Founder and Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministries, Enugu, spoke through his media aide, Maximus Ike Ugwuoke, on the sidelines of the activities ahead of his 21 years priestly ordination anniversary.

Mbaka recalled that he had also, on several occasions, released prophecies on the current hard times bedevilling the nation.

The priest, however, maintained that the previous administration, which ran a wasteful government, should be held responsible for the present situation.

Hear Mbaka’s media aide: “When this prophesies come, it must not be what people think or want. People are entitled to their views. Those reactions mean nothing.

“The important thing is that there is nothing he (Mbaka) has prophesied which never came to pass.

“The ministry does not care how people feel about his prophesies. Some call him controversial priest, some call him fiery priest and all that – they are entitled to their opinion. The fact remains that he is a true prophet.

“I will tell you something. It is not for us human to judge prophesies. He was the only person who said Buhari would win.

“If it were in the olden days, all those so-called men of God who castigated him would have received the wrath of God immediately. All of them should be ashamed of themselves now.

“When you look at that prophesy on Jonathan, he gave it and it came to pass. Don’t forget that two months before that prophesy, Jonathan’s wife came to the Adoration ground.

“That is to tell you that prophesy came from God. If after such visit, he had the courage to reveal such prophesy against them, that tells you that it is much more than what people think.

“Whether the prophesy is a good one or not, talking about the suffering, it has nothing to do with the prophesy.

“Before Buhari took over, the dollar was rising. There was already problem with our economy.

“They had oil boom but never saved; just wasted the opportunity. Even the suffering we are talking about was part of his prophesies; I recall that in 31st of January this year, he said clearly that Nigerians should brace up for hard times.

“He said a lot of hardship was under way. These sufferings Nigerians are passing through are process of change. I’m seeing a great future for Nigerians. He made it clear that there are so many holes which needed to be filled.”

When asked whether Mbaka could then be described as a prophet of doom, he said: “No way; he is not a prophet of doom. You can’t say that this is a government of doom.

“This is a government that has unearthed a whole lot of things. The other government had oil boom, which they squandered. They handed over oil doom to this government. We are no longer talking of excess crude. This is what the present government is facing,” Ugwoke said.

Speaking on stories making the rounds that Jonathan rejected his request for an oil well, Ugwoke stated that “these are lies from the pit of hell, used to water down the prophesy because people did not understand.

“It was even alleged that he received N5m from Buhari. You begin to wonder what N5m is to Mbaka. Is it the school fees he is paying for hundreds of people? This is all propaganda.

“There were also these claims of meeting with APC chieftains before the election. He never held any such meeting.

“He never met Buhari before the election; there has never been any communication between them. What he has already is bigger than oil well. He is a musician and the ministry is being sustained with that.”
