THERE ARE NO PROPHETS IN NIGERIA: ONLY POLITICAL PREDICTORS AND JOBBERS a case study in Enugu
THERE ARE NO PROPHETS IN NIGERIA: ONLY POLITICAL PREDICTORS AND JOBBERS.
The reverence and adoration we ascribe to religious leaders in this country has continued to water our dilemma of confusion. From all I have witnessed as a politician and writer, I discovered that we don’t have men who prophesy by the auction of the Holy Spirit rather, all I see are political predictors in religious regalia who because of their status easily hoodwink and deceive their followers with everything that proceeds from their mouths.
Father Mbaka didn’t prophesy, he is not a prophet and will never be, but rather,he is one of those who speak to their followers using available figures. Even a pegan knew that Buhari and INEC would rig Atiku out. The same Mbaka who warned Buhari not to recontest in this year’s election in November last year because God told him so, still had to say Buhari would win. The question, whether God mistakenly put that in his mouth, is what his ardent but sheepish followers will have to answer.
Again, if Mbaka is actually prophesying, why didn’t his prophecy that Chimaroke Nnamani would loose his second term bid come to pass? Why didn’t Ohakim win that year’s as he prophesied? He even went further to prophesy Nnamani’s death before the completion of his second tenure, why didn’t it manifest? In fact Chimaroke finished that tenure and went for senate.
I can also recollect clearly how the same Fr Mbaka who backed former president Jonathan for a second term, rescinded his position barely one month after making the so-called prophetic proclamation. This retraction was predicated on the timely visit of Buhari to Mbaka. Now, the question is, does the Holy Spirit speak from both sides of the mouth? Let his sheepish followers answer this.
Now, I am not against anybody; I am sure I have not sinned against the Holy Spirit as many subjective religious people would assume. I respect men of God, but I hate those with double standards. Mbaka speaks from both sides of his mouth or maybe, he is very confused.
However, I have to make it clear here that the interference of Fr Mbaka in Nigerian politics has plunged us into severe hardship. He actually, by his utterances plunged us into this reproach because we thought that he knew the best for us. He enjoys this because, he sells cheaply and gains from the outcome of a failed economy. It is his followers that feel the pains. He has so hypnotized his followers that they see whatever that proceeds from his mouth as divinely inspired without subjecting them into critical examinations.
I am ashamed of being a Christian because of people like Mbaka and co. who have vowed to sustain their relevance by toiling with our collective future.
If Buhari was the mind of God for us, why did they have to grossly manipulate the outcome of the election for him to become the president? Or does God rely on rigging and falsehood for his perfect will to be achieved? And why are Nigerians not happy over his victory? Stop presenting God in such a devalued status because he is not an author of confusion.
How can you be so embittered at Peter Obi simply because he refused to donate money for your projects. How does his refusal amount to offending the Holy Spirit? If religion doesn’t destroy Nigeria, nothing else will. Obi doesn’t owe you or anybody any form of apology whatsoever and if he should apologize to God, it would not be because of you, but rather his personal shortcomings against God.
Remember your prophecy of Gov Ugwuanyi’s failure should he bring back Chimaroke Nnamani. Now he has defied your threats and brought him back, let’s see what happens by next weekend.
Let’s watch and see.
