Breaking: Presidency says Father Mbaka was begging Buhari for contracts
Presidency says Father Ejike Mbaka, spiritual director of the Adoration Ministry (AMEN), once brought three contractors to President Muhammadu Buhari and was rebuffed.
Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, had lambasted President Muhammadu Buhari, saying God is not happy with his government because of the insecurity and killings in the country.
But in a statement released on Friday, titled “Father Mbaka is everything apart form what he claims.
He was referred to as 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.
“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.”
Mbaka, a controversial and popular cleric, had endorsed Buhari both in 2015 and 2019 and supported him over the years.
