Buhari invites me to Abuja, somebody who cannot give money, Mbaka says in viral video

A video of foremost Catholic Priest and Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Fr Ejike Mbaka, berating the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), for not making donations to his church, despite the church supporting his ambition in 2015, has gone viral.

The viral video, uploaded on Twitter was dug up from a 2018 message, coming after Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, accused Mbaka of criticising his superior because he (Buhari) failed to award him (Mbaka) federal contracts.

Garba’s comments on Friday came as a clap back to Mbaka’s declaration earlier in the week that God had withdrawn his support for Buhari and even blessed the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, whose organisation has been designated a terrorist network by the FG.

“If you know what this ministry is passing through because we are supporting Buhari. And the attackers are waiting for me to say I am supporting Buhari again and the attack will start and Buhari will remain in Aso Rock, being somebody who cannot give money? What does that mean? All the people being given allocation, what qualification do they have that we don’t have?” Mbaka lamented in the 10-minute video.

Mbaka, in the video uploaded by@RBiakpara made the comments during his ministry’s 2018 harvest and bazaar celebration ahead of the 2019 general elections.

The Punch reports that the video was recorded on the same day that the clergyman prophesied doom for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the same Presidential election because the Vice-Presidential candidate, Peter Obi, refused to make a donation.

Mbaka also revealed how Buhari would invite him to the Presidential Villa, Aso Rock in Abuja and would stay for days without seeing the president.

He said, “Because of Buhari, I am in this bush. Can’t the Federal Government take this ministry as a project? What would they lose from their pocket? A ministry that will back them spiritually and they will go forward.”

“Our loyalty, our support for Buhari is not debatable but the way he has repaid us is dangerous and cancerous and destructive and can pull any leader down… Several times he would invite me to Abuja. I would stay for one week and come back but nobody would see him,” Mbaka lamented.

“If this is a place where things work well, the moment Buhari got to that chair (Presidency), he would come here. What does it cost him? One morning flight and he comes here and thanks to the ministry that made him who he is then he can fly back,” the priest said.
