Mbaka Demanded Contracts From Buhari As Compensation For Support – President

The Presidency has responded to the attack on President Muhammadu Buhari which came from the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Fr Ejike Mbaka.

Mbaka, a supporter of President Buhari, had a few days ago called for his resignation or impeachment over the rising insecurity in Nigeria.

Reacting, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, revealed that Mbaka departed from his support for Buhari after failing to have his request for contracts from the President granted.

Shehu said, “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.”
