Catholic Priest and spiritual director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu Nigeria (AMEN), Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka has asked President Muhammed Buhari to resign for his inability to fulfill the demands of his office.
The cleric said if he failed to resign, members of the National Assembly should initiate the impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari over the rising insecurity in the country.
Mbaka condemned Buhari’s grave silence in the midst of the killings and deaths in the country
Mbaka who spoke on Wednesday a worship service in Enugu, conjectured that the president might have lost touch with realities.
In his view, no civilized leader would remain in power with the spate of violence and ugly deaths that have bedeviled the nation.
The revered Catholic Priest said, “How can people be dying, the chief security officer of the country will be sitting down without making any comment.
“Gunmen attacking people everywhere. Buhari should have resigned honorably following his failure as a leader. Let me tell you if it is in a civilized country, by now, President Buhari will resign with what is happening. So it is amazing that he has chosen to sit tight while people are dying anyhow.”
“Nigerians are crying because there’s no security in the country. The National Assembly should impeach the president if he doesn’t want to resign,” Mbaka said.
Mbaka warned the lawmakers that should they fail to impeach the president and begin to attack him; “…something worse than what they can never imagine will happen to the members.”
“Enough has to be enough. There is time for everything,” Mbaka said, an indication that he was fed up with the misgovernance by the incumbent administration in the country.
Mbaka, who helped Buhari to power through in-the-heat-election prophesy in 2015, which said that God had rejected Jonathan and had settled for Buhari, also prayed to God to change the heart of the leaders, wondering how someone can become a billionaire with the commonwealth of the people.
Mbaka also frowned at the activities of herdsmen that destroy the farmland of people without any repercussion and called on them to retreat.
He asked church leaders to come together and pray for God’s intervention on the land, insisting that they would not be spared should the present violence and killings continue in the land.
“I plead that the church leaders will understand me as a messenger of God and not begin to attack me because the danger is going to affect the church,” Mbaka said.
“When gunmen begin to strike inside the church, they will begin to kill one man of God or the other or even members of the church, who will go to the church again? The priests will lose their job, the Bishops will lose their jobs. So you better keep quiet or support what I’m saying.”
