The Presidency on Friday mocked the Spiritual Director of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu State, Fr Ejike Mbaka, for criticising the President, Muhammadu Buhari, over his alleged failure to tame insecurity and wanton killings of Nigerians by banditry gangs.
According to a statement by the Presidency spokesman, Garba Shehu, Father Mbaka requested for a contract as compensation for supporting President Buhari and because he didn’t get it he made a complete U-Turn, preposterously asking President Buhari to resign or be impeached.

Everything Apart From What He Claims To Be
An outsider distilling the avalanche of verbiage, will be surprised that after supporting the President two times to win the Presidency, Father Mbaka has made a complete U-Turn, preposterously asking President Buhari to resign or be impeached.
Here is the point of departure: Father 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, Father 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 would turn against the religious leader. None of it was released. Now, this is what Father Mbaka is eating.
