CONTROVERSIAL Catholic clergyman Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to resign because God is angry with him over the widespread killing of innocent people across Nigeria.
Reverend Mbaka, the spiritual director of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu, achieved national fame in 2014 when during a Christmas mass he predicted impending doom for the then President Goodluck Jonathan. He initially supported President Muhammadu Buhari but since then, however, he has become a fierce critic of the government, accusing it of betraying the hope a lot of Nigerians had in it.
Speaking in Enugu, Reverend Mbaka said: “I know people will say, Mbaka did you not pray for Buhari, did Samuel not anoint Saul? What are you talking about? Am I the creator of Buhari? God created him, Nigerians trusted him because he has done well sometimes ago but now how can people just be dying?
“God will ask Nigerians, why are you crying? We are crying because our leaders have failed us woefully. If it is in a civilized country, by now, President Buhari will resign. Quote me anywhere and let the whole world hear it.
“We are crying because we don’t have a shepherd. All those that will fight what I’m saying now will eventually suffer the rot. If you can’t do it, either you resign or you be changed. A good coach cannot watch his team defeated when he has players sitting watching on the bench. Either Buhari resigns by himself or he will be impeached.
“This statement is too mysterious and supernatural. I know that people will begin to fight it. The chief security officer consulting on lives in the country will be sitting down not making any comment.
“Gunmen are attacking everybody. Why are you crying Nigerian youths? As I said, overseas has become a dumping ground for our ingenious youths. Young doctors, lawyers, running away from Nigeria, countries we are better than.
“What is the matter? Nigerians are crying, why? Because there is no security in this country and the House of Representatives and the Senate should impeach the president if he doesn’t want to resign.
“Until the government of this country finds something useful for our youths, they are going to face disaster. A time is coming when, if you are asked to be a governor, senator, house or a representative member, you will begin to run because I’m trying to tell you that we cannot continue like this.
He added that many people come to his church not for prayer projects but because they need things which the government should supply. He added that this includes problems like struggling to feed and pay for house rents.
