Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka, the controversial Roman Catholic priest and spiritual director of Adoration Ministries Enugu, has asked Nigerians to support President Muhammadu Buhari in order to continue the war against corruption.
Mbaka made the call in his New Year prophetic message for 2019, Tribune reports.
Ifeknows.com gathers that the priest said a president fighting corruption deserves the people’s support.
Mbaka said the reason the Catholic Church created a prayer against bribery and corruption was because it supports the anti-corruption fight; and that he was supporting Buhari to complete another four years in office in order to complete the good work he already started.
Mbaka pointed out that though he likes calling people thieves in the media, Buhari is not a thief.
He said nobody understands Nigeria’s problems like Buhari and urged Nigerians to vote for the president.
Mbaka said he had never seen a president with agricultural programmes like Buhari and stated that nobody was hearing about herdsmen and bandits in the country anymore.
The priest pointed out that the road leading from Enugu to Anambra had been reconstructed alongside the one leading to Umuahia, after being overgrown with weeds for 16 years.
He said it was wrong for anybody to compare Buhari’s three years, during which he was sick and healed, with the 16 years of somebody who did nothing, and prayed for four more years for him to complete eight years in office.
He, however, charged Nigerians to pray hard to overcome an unimaginable difficulty they are going to face in 2019.
He said: “The type of difficulty the country is going to face is such that has not been witnessed in the history of the country.”
There were reports that Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka predicted President Muhammadu Buhari and the presidential candidate of the PDP, Alhaji Abubakar Atiku, may lose the 2019 presidential election.
The cleric argued that it was the prayers on his Adoration altar that made Buhari the president and lamented that the president had refused to come and do a project for his ministry as a way of thanking God.
