Ex-governor of Imo state, Emeka Ihedioha has reacted to speculations alleging that Fr. Ejike Mbaka of Adoration ministry begged that he should be forgiven over all that he said against him.
Reports had emerged that Mbaka had a phone conversation and apologized to Ihedioha following his prophecy that Uzodinma will become the governor of the state.
But, Ihedioha in a statement by his Spokesman, Chibuike Onyeukwu denied the rumour making the rounds.
It was recalled that Fr. Mbaka in his New Year message prophesied that Emeka Ihedioha would lose against his contender, Hope Uzodinma, in the Imo State Governorship race.
Ihedioha said that he never received any phone call from the Spiritual Director of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu.
The statement read “The report falsely attributed a statement to me, alleging that Fr. Mbaka, in the purported phone conversation, pleaded for forgiveness from my boss, over his utterances before and after the Supreme Court judgment of January 14, 2020, on the 2019 Imo State governorship election.
“I wish to make it clear that there was no such telephone conversation between Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha and Fr. Ejike Mbaka, neither did I author any statement nor speak to anybody pertaining to such.
“Nigerians and the good people of Imo State are advised to disregard such unfounded propaganda, as it is a known handiwork of enemies who do not wish Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha and the good people of Imo State well.
“We are not unaware of the desperate efforts to misrepresent His Excellency at this time, but we believe that truth and justice shall prevail sooner than later.”
