BREAKING: How Fr. Mbaka Begged Buhari For Contracts – Presidency

Fr. Mbaka and President Buhari

By Harry Awurumibe, Editor, Abuja Bureau

The Presidency has fired back Fr Ejike Mbaka, saying he is now attacking President Muhammad Buhari because he couldn’t get what he wanted from him.

Prompt News reports that Fr. Mbaka, who is the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, recently asked the President to resign or be impeached, saying God is angry with him.

Mbaka, who supported Buhari in the buildup to 2015 and had said: “God will ask Nigerians: Nigerians why are you crying? We are crying because our leaders have failed woefully. If it is in a civilized country, by now, will resign. Quote me anywhere and let the whole world hear it. By now, with what is happening, should honourably resign.

But, while reacting, Senior Presidential Media Aide, Garba Shehu, in a statement on Friday, said the point of departure was when Mabaka could not get contract from the President.

The statement is reproduced below:


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 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.

Anyone familiar with 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.
