2015: Rev Father Mbaka prays for Buhari, says President Jonathan disappointed Nigerians

By The Citizen

Renowned Catholic Priest, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, has offered prayers for the All Progressives Congress candidate, Maj.Gen Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) to  emerge the winner of the presidential election next month.

Mbaka, who heads the popular Catholic Adoration Centre in Enugu, said this in his New Year sermon titled 'From Good luck to Bad luck,' while addressing thousands of parishioners on Thursday night in Emene, Enugu State.

He urged all well-meaning Nigerians to vote for Buhari on February 14.

According to the cleric, Jonathan has disappointed Nigerians and cannot deliver the dividends of democracy to the people.

Mbaka subsequently knelt down in front of the altar, cried and asked God to give Nigeria a good leader and not Jonathan. He used the opportunity to beg Nigerians to vote wisely in the forthcoming elections.

'I love President Goodluck Jonathan and I used to be his ardent fan, but I want good for my people and that's why I want Nigerians to vote out Goodluck Jonathan and vote General Muhammad Buhari. I don't care if Buhari is a Muslim and from the North; all I care about is that Buhari can save Nigeria,” Mbaka stated.

It could be recalled that the same Mbaka had recently endorsed Jonathan's re-election bid when the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, had taken Jonathan's wife, Patience, to Mbaka, where the cleric said he would pray for Jonathan's victory.

However, after prayers, Mbaka said the sign he received from God was that Jonathan was not fit to rule the nation anymore.

Mbaka further explained that one of the reasons Jonathan is no longer fit to rule Nigeria for the next four years was the high level of insecurity which the President had failed to address as well as corruption in the country.

He said it was unfortunate that the over 200 Chibok girls who were abducted by terrorists over 200 days ago had not been rescued despite series of promises made by Jonathan.

He further urged the Federal Government to account for the missing $20bn and stop insurgency in the country.

Mbaka maintained that Buhari could not Islamise Nigeria as being rumoured in some circles.

He said he had never met the APC candidate but urged Nigerians not to forget that Buhari fought corruption to a standstill during his administration between December 1983 and August 1985.

Considering the man's age, it is not impossible that the man has forgotten where the documents are which of course will raise other questions, however, that will be left for the electorate to decide. In the mean time, he can always apply to the school(s) attended for "To Whom it may Concern" which will be as good as the certificate(s) itself.

Every body knows the situation we are in as of now. Lets talk of the reality. Lets forget about ones religion. Nobody stops any body from doing his religion. Lets vote wisely and save our nation.

who laughs last now. a man ordained by God gave God's message but u guys condemned him. his prophesy stands after all. all the other so called men of God who said what God didn't say should now hide in shame. Mbaka is a real man of God. beg God for forgiveness before His wrath descends upon you for insulting His chosen one.

mind your statement fellow Nigeria. Rev father Mbaka cannot take bribe from any one, not even the president of united states. don't invite the wrath of God by saying jagoons about a priest you know nothing about. am not a catholic but I most disappoint you that father mbaka is a true servant of God speaking the mind of God to the world bcos the cry of Nigerians have touched the heart of Our creator.
Chima ohia | 1/3/2015 8:15:00 PM
Rev.father Ejike Mbaka,your sermon you titled from Good luck to Bad luck,how does that affect the life of a sin that worship with you at Adoration that very day,God told you He didn't need Goodluck to rule this nation,but Buhari,Please father live politician,use your position widely,souls are perishing,use your time wisely,pray for our president and our nation Nigeria,God will give us a lead to rule his people,(be wise their is no time,God bless you.

God has really shown you all that Mbaka really spoke His message. be God for mercy and forgiveness.

who says he is wasting his time? the spiritual smoke in the political realm is not sum tin you can comprehend. Gods anointed is speaking To sensitize and educate the populace without fear and you are admonishing him to use his time wisely, am disappointed in your literature, what can be of priority now if not the fate of our dear country. president good luck is a man that have the interest of Nigeria at heart and has worked to ensure sustainable development only in theory as his project executors have constantly stabbed him by doing the otherwise. he is a smart and responsible president but what must be must be and that is a change of government that have suffered in the hands of corrupt ministers and public servants.

Rev. Mbaka, first endorsed Jonathan, before he endorsed Buhari. You see, he has lost his mind. Buhari has given him money. Or he may have been threatened by the dog and the baboon thing. You know that Buhari earlier said if this election does not go well the dog and the baboon will be soaked in blood.
okey | 4/1/2015 12:04:00 PM
God is really angry with you for this comment. beg for His mercy and forgiveness for insulting His priest. His prophesy has been fulfilled. take this seriously or you ignore it to ur detriment
HENRY | 1/10/2015 9:28:00 PM
God Has no hand in luck but His Grace cares for those that fear Him even they may falter or fail you,as God's servant we out to pray for our leaders even if they falter we must not sell out but remember God's forgiveness for us as well for every one has weaknesses. (Psalm 51:5)Servant of God please be in the Spirit before our people are led astray. Nigeria is in dear need of leaders but not those that want it by blood, please let wisdom lead all of you in the MIGHTY NAME OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST. (James 1:5.)
Slad | 1/11/2015 10:25:00 PM
It so pains me to see a religious leader dabble in politics. I wouldn't want to use provocative words, I would have asked if Mbaka has lost his sense of reasoning! I thought the bible he carries thought him never to Judge? Has he stopped operating from spiritual perception? I expected him to pray for Nigeria rather than sway peoples mind by misleading them. May God help us

Ephraim Bestman | 1/30/2015 9:36:00 PM
It Is Quite Obvious That Majority Of People And Politicians Has Always Fought Against The President Jonathan Regime. So The Least Fr. Mbaka Shuld Do Is To Pray For Peace And 4 D Will Of God Manifest In Dis Cmin Election. He Shuld Stp Campaigning 4 Apc
