The Presidency has berated the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka, for inciting the public against the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd).

Recall that Mbaka yesterday called for Buhari’s resignation or impeachment over the spate of heightened insecurity in the country.

However, a statement by Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, on Friday stated otherwise.

In the statement entitled: “Fr. Mbaka is everything apart from what he claims to be,” the presidency accused the priest of trying to arm-twist Buhari after the latter failed to approve contracts as compensation for his prophecy.

“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,” he said.
