Father Mbaka did NOT hear from God

Published by on January 16th, 2020.


Now that the Supreme Court has nullified the election of the Peoples Democratic Party’s Emeka Ihedioha as the governor of Imo State and declared the All Progressives Congress’ Hope Uzodinma the winner of the March 9, 2019 governorship election in the state, I owe it to readers of last week’s article to insist that God has nothing to do with the “prophets” that purportedly speak in his name. No God told Rev Fr Mbaka that Uzodinma would win at the court. More likely, this was what happened: To prepare the public for the electoral magic that would propel Uzodinma from his INEC-declared fourth position in the election to an eventual declaration of him as governor, Mbaka became a tool to “prophesy” it ahead of the day. The court judgment was not written on Tuesday morning; it must have been concluded weeks before the verdict was delivered, and a few privileged people must have had access to the information. They knew the outcome would be contentious, and that was where Mbaka and his penchant for prophetic controversy became useful.

By Tuesday when Uzodinma was finally declared governor, the public had become open to the possibility of his victory. The shock – and perhaps outrage – that could have accompanied the unexpected upturn of the 2019 election had mitigated. I suspect even Ihedioha knew about the looming judgment because of his jitters about Mbaka’s prophesy. Whoever came up with the Mbaka angle played the game well; they got people by their dog collar. Take a look around, and you will find that more folk have been carried away with the spectacle of Mbaka’s prophecy and are less invested in the “mathemagic” that produced Uzodinma’s governorship. That is how abracadabra works. The magician makes you look in one direction while they work their sleight of hand in the opposite direction.
As of the time of sending this piece in, a lot of information about the court case remains fuzzy. I am curious, for instance, how the other candidates fared in the 388 cancelled polling units that were restored to favour Uzodinma and why the apex court did not order fresh elections. I hope we can concentrate on analysing what matters instead of wasting time on debating whether Mbaka has telepathic powers or not. He does not; he belongs in the circles where he picks up privileged information. This time, it worked for him. He is now an oracle who will be mediating, not between God and man, but between opposing camps of desperate politicians. The administration that claimed they won the Osun State governorship election through a “remote control” might have just gained multiple victories at our collective expense.
