Presidency Reveals More Information Against Clergyman Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka
The Nigerian presidency has said Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka of the Adoration Ministry in Enugu, is not the man people think he is as he has turned against President Muhammadu Buhari because of the president’s refusal to grant his requests for government contracts.
Senior Special Assistant, Media and Publicity to the President ,Garba Shehu via series of tweets on his verified Twitter handle revealed that Mbaka turned on Buhari because he was refused government contracts.
“An outsider distilling the avalanche of verbiage, will be surprised that after supporting the President two times to win the presidency, Father Mbaka has made a complete U-Turn, preposterously asking President Buhari to resign or be impeached.
“Here is the point of departure: Father Mbaka asked for a meeting and to the shock of Presidential Aides, he came accompanied by three contractors. The President graciously allowed them in, and to everyone’s surprise, Father Mbaka asked for contracts as compensation for his support,” Shehu discloses.
He adds that “anyone familiar with President Buhari knows that he doesn’t break the laid down rules in dealing with contracts or any other government business for that matter. He requested the appropriate authorities to deal with the matter in accordance with laid down rules.
“Inside the Villa, discretion prevailed, that if those pictures and requests were made public, the followers will turn against the religious leader. None of it was released. Now, this is what is eating Father Mbaka.”
President Buhari’s political party, APC, had earlier asked Mbaka to stick to his spiritual calling and leave politics for the politicians and also threatened to report Rev Mbaka to Pope Francis who is the head of the Roman Catholic Church.
Recall that while addressing parishioners at the Adoration ground in Enugu last Sunday, Fr.Mbaka called on the president to resign honourably over heightened insecurity across the country; and urged the national assembly to impeach the president if he refuses to resign.
