APC faults Mbaka over calls for Buhari’s impeachment
The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has faulted the spiritual director of Adoration Ministry, Rev Fr. Ejike Mbaka, for calling for the impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari.
APC’s Deputy National publicity secretary, Yekini Nabena in a statement argued that Mbaka’s call constitutes a threat to democratic rule in the country.
The Bayelsa-born politician said it was unfortunate that Mbaka who is expected to deploy all known spiritual means of ensuring peaceful coexistence among Nigerians went out of his ways to make such pronouncement in pursuit of his selfish desires.
While making reference to the book of Mark 4: 35-40 where Jesus Christ calm the storm when a wild storm came up and the waves crashed over the boat, Nabena said Jesus did not blame anyone but prayed and calm the storm.
He said: “One will wonder whom Father Mbaka is emulating because the Lord Jesus Christ did not threaten to bring down the government during his own time, in fact, Jesus Christ obeyed and honoured constituted authority. That’s why he paid his tax.
“We are calling on Father Mbaka to concentrate on his spiritual calling and stop speaking like politicians who it is obvious he (Mbaka) has been dining and wining with. If Mbaka has found another political ally, it is better to leave political message for politicians.
“Calling on President Muhammadu Buhari to either resign or be impeached because of the current challenges is ungodly. Father Mbaka should not, however, take his luck too far because there are lot to tell the Vatican and the Pope about his person and his sources of inspiration.”
Nabena also called on other clerics to emulate the likes of Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) and Pastor WF Kumuyi of the Deeper Life Bible Ministry and many other men of God who will rather fast and pray to avert a crisis in the country instead of threatening the government of the day.
Stating that Mbaka’s utterances were capable of breaching the peace in the country, he threatened to drag Mbaka to the headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church and the Pope if he (Mbaka) does not repent from his alleged divisive role in the country.
