Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka has said the allegations against him by the Presidency that his recent call for the resignation of the President was because his request contracts was rebuffed want not only laughable but childish.
Mbaka last week call for the resignation of the President following his abysmal handling of the vexed matter of insecurity in the country.
Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, fired back against the cleric, alleging that his track on the President followed his request for contracts which was denied.
Speaking on the allegation in his sermon on Sunday, Mbaka said he took three white men who had solution to a critical challenge in the area of insecurity being faced by the country.
He said that all he did was to facilitate access to the presidency for the men, who he did not know before for them to make their contract proposition to the Presidency.
“When they talk about giving Fr Mbaka contracts, I don’t want to talk about that because it is a laughable, childish accusation. Whoever is saying that is a shame to himself and shame to the people he is representing.
“Fr Mbaka’s voice came from the spiritual, so what I am saying is unchallengeable. I have been silent because I was waiting for them to change until God said ‘speak’.
“Some messages are like dew, some are like rain while some are like thunder. Anyone challenging that message is challenging the God of thunder and should be careful.
“The Fr Mbaka who was speaking is not just a priest but by the special grace of God a job provider. To the glory of God, those benefitting directly from me monthly through direct salary are not less than 23,000 people.
“That person challenging Fr Mbaka, how many people are you feeding? So if I talk you talk? Because the government is paying you?
“I’m not here to defend any allegation, but the three men he mentioned are people that could have handled the nation’s insecurity. This was during Buhari’s first term and these men told them they can help conquer insecurity.
“These men had the platform to end insecurity within one month. This was under Abba Kyari. I just handed them over to government. They only asked me to help them reach government and offered to help insecurity, revive the nation’s economy through putting an end to theft of crude oil and providing employment.
Anyone who says the truth is branded a terrorist.
“Are those given contracts better than me? They have shown that they don’t have a reward mechanism.
“The last person this administration should fight is Fr Mbaka.” he said.
He dismissed the threats of reporting him to the pope as something that would rather earn him promotion.
According to him, “If Rome hears that Father Mbaka is challenging evil governance, Rome will clap for me, so quickly go to Rome.
“Why I don’t want them even to report this to Rome is because if pope hears the extent of my involvement, they may give me a position I may not like You want to report Messi to FIFA that he plays too much ball? They will make him soccer ambassador.”
