Rev. Father Mbaka Attacks Buhari, Warns of A Looming Danger


Enugu Catholic priest, and Spiritual Director of the Adoration Ministry,

Enugu State, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, has warned President Muhammadu Buhari

that Nigerians will not vote for him in 2019 if he does not address the

high level of hunger and suffering in the country.
Mbaka has been one of Buhari's most vocal supporters since he asked

Nigerians to reject the incumbent, Goodluck Jonathan of the Peoples

Democratic Party during the 2015 presidential pol and predicted Buhari's

But, in a surprising turn of events, Mbaka attacked Buhari in a recent

message, details of which were obtained by journalists on Tuesday night.

In the message, Mbaka noted that there was too much suffering in the

country, and faulted the President for not appointing the right people.

He also accused the President of listening to the wrong advice.

The message partly read, “The issue is that Mbaka is speaking as the

Spirit leads him – there is hunger everywhere.  My job is to tell leaders

the truth, the landlords are crying, the tenants are lamenting, sellers

are crying, buyers are lamenting – there is hunger on the streets.

“I can't keep quiet when things are going wrong.
“I am telling the President to look around him and know those who are

advising him rightly and those who are telling him that there is no

“The President should know that there is trouble – if things continue like

this, in the next election, nobody will vote for him.

“Whether they like it or not, I am speaking the raw truth.

“If the President should have somebody like me and he cannot be talking

with me, then there is a problem.
“There is a problem somewhere; somebody who can advise you without asking

for anything and he is representing the poor masses in the country, and he

won't tell you lies.
“He will praise you when you are doing well and when you are not doing

well, he will look at you in the face and tell you.”

Continuing, he said, “I don't need the President; I need God, I need the

Holy Spirit, I need Jesus; there is suffering everywhere, people are

“To feed is now a problem, and a hungry man is an angry man.

“Hunger and anger will lead to danger.
“So, let him know whether he can do away with some advisers around him and

bring in the people who are experts in economic revamp.

“There are people who are experts in that; let them begin to empower

people, people are not empowered, they are still walking around in vicious

circles, planning and planning, and planning.”
Mbaka said there were no spaces left in mortuaries across the country.

“Hunger is everywhere, many neighbours don't eat again, many are being

attacked by hunger, hunger is becoming a normal thing, and there are

people responsible for this.
“Mortuary and ambulance business is now thriving because many cannot

afford drugs.
“In today's Nigeria, many are becoming hawkers, who will buy from you,

with what?
“Everyday, more pipelines are being blown, the Avengers are at work and up

till now, there is no solution.
“You know when certain things begin to happen; you begin to ask some

questions, somebody like me will begin to ask – when will this end?

“If it continues in the next three months, there will be no money to pay

salaries – the vicious effect is disastrous, and when salaries cannot be

paid, teachers will come home, students will stop going to school, there

will be more kidnappings, more hooliganism, more armed robbery, more

prostitution, immorality will be on the increase.”
He urged Buhari to sit up and stop going after the leadership of the Senate.

Mbaka equally bemoaned the continuous depreciation in the value of the naira.

“So, the President should sit up – there is a red light blinking on the

“The issue of Saraki and Ekweremadu, nobody, wants to listen to such

stories any more, whether Saraki is the President of the Senate or

Ekweremadu is not this or that, the countrymen are tired of such stories.

“We need economic experts, gurus, sages that are sincere, who can come in

and think about our economic revamp and judicial reformation.”
