he Presidency on Friday dropped a bombshell on what is eating the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Rev. Father Ejike Mbaka up.
The Presidency narrated how Father Mbaka allegedly went to Aso Rock with some contractors to request President Muhammadu Buhari for contracts as compensation for his support.
A statement by Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, stated that Buhari refused Father Mbaka his request, stressing that, that is what is eating the cleric up.
The statement reads: “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”.
