“Non among the innumerable messages of the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria, Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka generated widespread reaction like his 2015 New year Message, tittled FROM GOODLUCK TO BADLUCK” wherein he prophesied from the Oracle of the Holy Spirit that God has rejected Good luck Jonathan in his re-election bid and chosen Retired General Muhammadu Buhari to address the national problems of Corruption, economic crunch, insecurity, bloodshed in the North , Poverty and Unemployment which the former’s government had failed to tackle in the country. The transcribed version of this message was published in many sections of National Newspapers and also in You Tube and other Social Media.
The popularity of this prophetic message may not be unconnected to the fact that it was declared before over one million worshipers of the Ministry that gathered from all parts of the world for the Ministry’s annual 31st December Vigil mass. Again the message came at such a time it was seemingly impossible to be realized especially going by the fact that President Good luck Jonathan’s government and his party PDP controls virtually all the national apparatus to win the 2015 election. Inspite of this, Fr. Mbaka had maintained in that message that “those who think they can interpret the destiny of this country are going to make a mistake this time”.
This message was trailed with widespread reaction, ethnic and religious sentiments, media attacks, criticism, and all kinds of threats and blackmails on the Rev Fr Mbaka and Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria. Fr Mbaka and the Ministry were not spared, even among the Church Hierarchy some of whom called for Fr Mbaka’s sanction and the closing of the Ministry. It was unfortunate that those who battled Fr Mbaka and the Ministry at the rage of that message undermined the untold miracles of healings and other signs and wonders that God performs through Fr Mbaka in the ministry, they undermined Fr Mbaka’s charity works to thousands of students under his scholarship in Nigerians institutions and oversea and the uncountable patients whose cost of medical bills he undertakes. They undermined the burden of poor Nigerians whose problems are being shouldered by Fr Mbaka which has been the major passion that draws him into humanitarian circle and critique by many who misconstrue him. The attacks and criticism that followed his said New year message (with almost all true worshipers in the ministry getting their shares of the scorn) escalated to a point that it seemed the fate of the ministry and Fr Mbaka’s prophetic powers hung in the balance of fulfillment of his prophesies of Buhari’s victory. In the midst of all this, Fr Mbaka remained undeterred.
It is with vindictive joy and glory to God that Adoration ministry, the nation and indeed the world saw the fulfillment of Fr Mbaka’s New Year prophesy of Change with the miraculous victorious emergence of General Muhammed Buhari at the March 28th polls as the President Elect of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
We wish to reinstate that before President Goodluck became the President of this country, Fr Mbaka prophesied it in his message titled “Okoro”. Today again Buhari’s victory among other lessons it portends to Nigerians has once more confirmed to all and sundry that Fr Mbaka is indeed a true Prophet of God and that His New Year message was indeed from the Oracle of the Holy Spirit as he declared.
The ministry with magnanimous heart holds no grudges against anyone who attacked it in one way or the other at the rage of the controversies surrounding Fr Mbaka’s message and view their actions as being orchestrated by their misconstruing of Fr Mbaka’s prophetic calling.
The Ministry joins the rest of Nigerians to congratulate Muhammadu Buhari as God’s chosen instrument of Change to tackle the myriads of problems facing Nigeria and pray God to endow him with the wisdom to go about this onerous task. We see Buhari’s victory as divine victory to all Nigerians irrespective of our religious and ethnic divide.”
