Primate Theophilus Olabayo, the Founder of the Evangelical Church of Yahweh Worldwide, has said that Father Ejike Mbaka is not a prophet because prophets are not groomed in the Catholic Church.
Olabayo made this known in reaction to the prophecy by Mbaka concerning the Imo State governorship seat which saw the sacking of Emeka Ihedioha and the swearing-in of Hope Uzodinma as governor of the state by a Supreme Court judgement.
The Supreme Court judgment had gone exactly how Mbaka had prophecied just days before it was declared.
Reacting to the prophecy, Olabayo said, “It is either the press or the government wants to destroy Catholic Church; I have never seen the Catholic Church having a prophet. During Goodluck Jonathan’s government, Fr. Mbaka was very close to Jonathan but later he fell out with him.
“This time around, the same Mbaka prophesied about Imo State. Now, see what is happening in Imo State.
“They arranged it and said that the man who did not win election is now the governor, and they removed a sitting governor.”
He added that, “Mbaka is not a prophet” but “a social critic.
“You know, people can read things and call themselves prophet. Now, he has set Imo State in trouble.”
“Mbaka did not see any prophecy. Let me tell the Federal Government that if they don’t do the right thing, judgement of God is coming.
He added that Mbaka’s prophecy didn’t influence the judgment by the Apex Court because “It was not a prophecy; it was arranged.”
