From David Hassan Gombe
The Christian community in Gombe State has risen in defence of Governor Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo over 2018 predictions made by the controversial Catholic priest, Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka of the Adoration Church in Enugu.
Represented by the state chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Reverend Ibrahim Jodi, the body while on a courtesy visit at the Gombe Government House on Saturday, lambasted one
Mohammed Jibrin Barde for denouncing Mbaka’s prediction on Dankwambo.
Jodi said as believers in the word, they have accepted and rejoiced with Mbaka’s prediction. They however, wondered why Barde, “who’s neither a cleric or knows the value of an anointed man of God” could denounce the prediction as false.
Recall that Rev Fr. Mbaka who predicted President Muhammadu Buhari’s victory in 2015 recently endorsed Dankwambo for President in 2019.
The preacher also claimed that the Lord has told him to advise Buhari not to seek a second term.
However, in a widely circulated opinion article recently published in the media, Mohammed Jibrin Barde denounced Mbaka’s prediction on Dankwambo as “way off the mark” as well as a “fantasy”.
