The Presidency has responded to a call made by Ejike Mbaka, a Catholic priest and spiritual director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, for the impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari over insecurity in the country.
Mbaka had withdrawn his support the president asking him to resign or be impeached by the National Assembly. In the same video, he blessed Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Responding, Garba Shehu, presiential spokesman, said Mbaka is furious because the President refused to grant him contracts.
“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,” he said in a seriesof tweets.
“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.”
