- He‘ll go same way Ihedioha went, Douglas House can’t accommodate an Orlu man now.
A seer, Prophet Chisom Ekwuonna has counselled supporters of the new Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma to cut shorthair celebration.
The Prophet said Uzodinma’s Governorship would be short-lived.
According to him, he saw Uzodinma in prison and not in the hallowed chambers of the government house in Owerri.
Prophet Ekwonna said, I am not seeing Hope Uzodinma in the government, I am seeing him in the prison. This is what I saw and I stand by it. If I don’t stand by it, it means I am not hearing from God.
“Write it bold that hope will not remain in Douglas House”
When questioned on what will take him to prison, he responded, I don’t know but I saw him in prison.
He recalled his earlier prophecy in which he said that Douglas House will not accommodate any person from Orlu Zone, adding that the same way Emeka Ihedioha was removed is the same Uzodinma will go.
Prophet Ekwunna of the living seed ministries had in a prediction published in an Owerri based newspaper (Daily Nigerian Horn of September 23, 2019) prophesied that Ihedioha will lose at the Supreme Court.
In the same prophecy, he had declared that Uche Nwosu and Uzodinma can never be Governor.
Meanwhile, the declaration of Hope Uzodinma as the Imo State Governor sent shockwaves down the spines of many Imolites who cried blue murder at the development.
Uzodinma at the last general election placed a distant fourth but had been declared the winner following the admission by the Supreme Court of results from 318 polling booths.
The capital city of Owerri has remained quiet since the pronouncement.

Supreme Court Judgment Is Unfair, Unjust – Ihedioha
Former governor of Imo State, Emeka Ihedioha has kicked against the judgment of the Supreme Court which removed him from office
The former governor said that the judgment unfair and unjust.
According to Ihedioha, the verdict of the seven-man panel led by Chief Justice of Nigeria, Tanko Mohammed was at variance with the voting during the election.
In a statement he personally signed, the former governor, however, resigned himself to fate.
He observed that it is only God who knows why he allowed his ouster to happen. Ihedioha reiterated that he sought to elevate merit of purpose, honesty, transparency and an inclusive approach to governance in the seven months his government lasted. He said his administration worked hard to re-engineer Imo renaissance.

He disclosed that the secretary to the state government (SSG), Uche Onyeagucha would coordinate the hand over to the new governor even as he urged all his aides to prepare their handover notes as he would not be a party to pilfering of government funds and property.
