Mbaka angry because Buhari didn’t give him contracts – Presidency


Reverend father Mbaka and Muhammadu Buhari

The Presidency has alleged that fiery Catholic cleric, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, who supported President Muhammadu Buhari but has now turned against him, is angry because his request for contracts was ignored.

Mbaka, who supported Buhari in his first and second term elections, recently called for the President’s impeachment over rising insecurity in the country.


In its reaction yesterday, Senior Special Assistant to the President, Mallam Garba Shehu, said Mbaka recently “asked for contracts as compensation for his support. An outsider distilling the avalanche of verbiage will be surprised that after supporting the President two times to win the Presidency, Mbaka has made a complete U-Turn, preposterously asking President Buhari to resign or be impeached.”

He added: “Here is the point of departure: 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, 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 Mbaka.”
