Ejike Mbaka and Muhammadu Buhari
Popular man of God, Father Mbaka has spoken on his relationship with Buhari and the only request he made when they met at the presidential villa.
Ejike Mbaka, spiritual director of the Adoration Ministries Enugu (AMEN), says God has blessed him to the extent that he does not curry favour from politicians who come to him for prayers, according to TheCable.
Mbaka said that as at the time he prophesied that President Muhammadu Buhari would emerge victorious in the 2015 election, he had not met the president; and when he finally met him, he did not “collect a kobo from him but demanded good governance for Nigeria”. He was speaking with reporters for the first interview since his transfer from Christ The King Parish, GRA Enugu.
“When eventually I met Buhari when I went for prayers at Aso Rock, what I demanded from him was good governance for Nigeria,” he said. “I didn’t ask him to give me one kobo. One kobo of Buhari has never entered my hand.”
Mbaka said God had a reason for taking him to Our Lady Parish in Emene, a suburb of Enugu. His position this time around was different from that of Saturday when he was departing from Christ The King Parish where he served for over 20 years. The cleric had nursed concern on where the assets of his ministry would be kept, saying he would suffer.
“I am going to suffer because I have no place to lay my head; I am going to suffer because I have no place to keep the ministry’s assets. The Adoration Ministry is passing through suffering right now,” he had said. But while speaking at an interactive session with journalists, he appeared to have accepted the transfer with equanimity.
