373

The presidency has reacted to the criticism by the Enugu based Catholic priest, father Ejike Mbaka on his call for President Mohammadu Buhari to resign or be impeached for his failure in tackling ravaging insecurity in Nigeria, Njenje Media News reports.

In a statement released by the senior special assistant to the President, Shehu Garba, monitored by Njenje Media News, the SSA stated that “ Mbaka 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”.

The full 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”.
