Catholic church priest, Revd. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, performed spiritual cleansing of the Imo State governor’s office, as Senator Hope Uzodinma assumed office on Wednesday.
Security men and civil servants at the State Government House in Owerri, the state capital, told our correspondent on Friday that the priest, who had predicted the victory of the new governor in his prophecies on new year’s eve, was at the Government House for over three hours on Wednesday when the governor was sworn-in.
It was gathered that Mbaka, who came in company with another priest, his aides, and church members, also prayed for the staff at the Government House including the security operatives attached there.
One of our sources in the government house said, “Fr. Mbaka was here (Government House) on Wednesday. He was the one who dedicated the governor’s office. He was here for over three hours. He came with another priest, Fr Otimbodombo, and his church workers.
“He was in one of the cars for a long time before he came down and dedicated the governor’s office. We later besieged him and he started blessing us and blessed our sacramentals and chaplets.
“Fr Mbaka personally prayed for me and I was happy. He blessed my chaplet which I will be using for prayers. They left after staying for, at least, three hours. ”
Our correspondent learnt that the priest, who did not go to Heroes Square Arena where the new governor was sworn-in, left for Enugu, his base, after the spiritual exercise at the government house.
