Recall that the cleric, In his 2020 New Year message, had said Uzodimma of the All Progressives Congress (APC), a former Senator, would be sworn in as governor. “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”, he had 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 prophesy.
