Nigerian Presidency has accused Father Ejike Mbaka of the Adoration Ministry (AMEN), of bringing three contractors to President Muhammadu Buhari but was rebuffed.
Presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, said, the reason why Mbaka is calling for Buhari to resign is not due to the high rate of insecurity in the country.
Shehu claimed that Father Mbaka asked for compensation for supporting Buhari’s government but was turned down by the Presidency.
In a statement released on Friday, April 30th, it reads;
“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.”
In 2015 Father Mbaka, president Buhari election and have been supporting him over the years even during his reelection in 2019.
However, in a new sermon on Wednesday, Mbaka said God is angry with the president over the increase in insecurity, as he calls for his resignation.
“I know people will say, Mbaka did you not pray for Buhari, did Samuel not anoint Saul? What are you talking about? Am I the creator of Buhari? God created him, Nigerians trusted him because he has done well sometimes ago but now how can people just be dying?”
