Mbaka spits fire over Kanu, naira redesign, fuel scarcity
Charismatic Catholic Priest, Fr. Ejike Mbaka, has issued a stern warning to President Muhammadu Buhari over continuous deterioration of the country, asking him to “change” or be ready to face consequences of his actions.
Mbaka lamented the hardship Nigerians are facing over the continuous detention of leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, naira redesign and fuel scarcity, insisting that “government has messed up the country.”
Mbaka had earlier prophesied the election of Buhari in 2015, describing him as “messiah.”
The Catholic priest returned to his Adoration Ministry in January this year, months after he was suspended and sent to the monastery by the Catholic Diocese of Enugu. He stated that he is pained by what Nigerians are passing through.
Speaking to thousands of his members at Emene, Enugu, on Sunday, Mbaka said: “I ask the current government to change or you people will cry, because you cannot face what you are inviting to yourselves.
“The Hausa are crying; the Fulani are crying; the Yoruba are crying; the Igbo are crying; the Niger Delta people are crying; the Middle Belt are crying, who are you now leading?”
Referring to Kanu’s case, he said: “It is only in Nigeria that the court can set somebody free and the government will say ‘No,’ and continue to keep that person.
“We pray for the release of Kanu; Ndigbo are suffering for what they know nothing about; students and workers will not go to work; everywhere is locked up on Mondays and our leaders don’t care; it does not concern them; how can you say it does not concern you? If you are a leader you must care.”
Mbaka wondered why the power of the judiciary has continued to be undermined by other arms of government, especially the executive.
