Mbaka Wanted Contracts For Supporting Buhari - Presidency

The Presidency seems to have opened a Can of worms as it regards it's soured relationship with Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka of the Adoration ministry Enugu.

The clergyman who was once a staunch supporter of President Buhari has since retraced his steps, calling for the resignation or impeachment of the President following widespread insecurity in the country.

But the Presidency is taking non of that and has countered with a statement from Presidential spokesman Mallam Garba Shehu stating how Mbaka sought for contracts from the President as payment for his support.

Below is the complete text of the statement.

FATHER MBAKA IS EVERYTHING APART FROM WHAT HE CLAIMS TO BE
 
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.
