Rev Father Ejike Mbaka, the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, has finally responded to the presidency, over claims that he lobbied for contracts from President Muhammadu Buhari.
Verbatim News had earlier published a release from the presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, alleging that Rev Father Ejike Mbaka, had demanded contracts from President Muhammadu Buhari, and linked Mbaka’s recent comments against Buhari, to the allegation, that Buhari had rejected Mbaka’s request.
Mbaka, once a strong supporter and campaigner for President Muhammadu Buhari, had come under fire from the presidency recently, when he called for Buhari’s resignation, or impeachment.
Reaction to Garba Shehu’s allegations, Mbaka while addressing congregants at the Adoration ground in Enugu, described the allegation as laughable, and warned the presidency not to speak against him, stating that anyone who does so, speaks against God.
Mbaka pointed out that the presidency lied against him, stating that those he took to the president, never demanded for contracts from Buhari, rather offered to help Nigeria in the fight against insurgents and terrorists.
Mbaka described Garba Shehu as a shame to himself and those he represents. Mbaka went on to state, that he pays direct salary to about 23,000 people on a monthly basis, and had no need for contracts from Buhari.
