The Presidency has fired back at the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, over his call to President Muhammadu Buhari to resign over his inability to handle the present insecurity situation in the country.

Mbaka also warned that if he fails to do so, he would be impeached.

But in a reaction, the presidency said that “Father Mbaka is everything apart from what he claims to be.”

In a statement by Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President (Media & Publicity) on Friday, the president said: “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.”

Adding: “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.”

According to the statement, “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.”

The statement continued: “Inside the Villa, discretion prevailed, that if those pictures and requests were made public, the followers will turn against the religious leader. None of it was released. Now, this is what is eating Father Mbaka.”
