Spiritual Director, Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria (AMEN), Ejike Mbaka, yesterday dismissed the Federal Government’s accusation that he called for the impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari because he was denied contracts.
Mbaka who insisted that no amount of government patronage was capable of influencing his utterances since he was speaking strictly under the leading of the Holy Spirit, said he was “happy that the truth was hitting them. We are not afraid of them. Buhari cannot do it again; health and age are not on his side. We need a stronger and an experienced goal keeper in a time like this. If they want to put it that it was because of contract, let them come and build the highest university here and begin to mess up, I will still speak.
“I don’t want to talk about that because it’s a laughable and childish accusation. Whoever is saying that, is a shame to himself and shame to the people he is representing. Mbaka’s voice came from the spiritual. So what I’m saying is unchallengeable.
“With enormous joy, I am happy that the truth is hitting them hard. No amount of money can merchandise the Holy Ghost anointing in me. Mbaka is unbribable. Even if they come and build the highest university here, that cannot bribe me.”
He, however, admitted that he led three men to meet with the president during his first tenure explaining that they were security experts who had offered to help in solving Nigeria’s security challenges.
“I don’t know them, but they came to Enugu and pleaded for me to link them to government. Because of the level of insecurity and how Nigeria has been moving oil outside the country. These are the three people they rejected their offer.”
I pay salaries of 23,000 people’
“The Father Mbaka who was speaking is not just a priest but, by the special grace of God, is a job provider. To the glory of God, those that are benefitting from me, direct salary earners, are not less than 23,000 people.
“The person challenging Father Mbaka, how many people are you feeding? If I talk, you talk? Because the government is paying you — do you know how many people I am paying? Before you challenge me when I talk about unemployment, I am an employer. So, somebody talking about giving Father Mbaka contracts, I started laughing. The three men he talked about, I am not here to defend anybody’s stupid allegation but God used that man to tell the world that Buhari’s government is not giving me money. You see how God works? Shehu, may God bless you for telling everybody that you are not giving me contracts.
“And these are the three men that we brought that will handle insecurity for the country; they had the gadgets. The white people, they had the facilities. That was during the first administration. And they said they will help them in conquering insecurity. They had the platform to end insecurity in this country under one month; under Abba Kyari. I just handed them over to the government people. They denied them of these; I don’t even know these people. They just came to Enugu and said, can I help them reach the government, that the level of insecurity in this country and how Nigeria has been shipping their oil out, refining and bringing them back, that we are losing. That they have all it takes to revive the oil apparatus in the country and get the whole youths employed and the issue of insecurity will die. These are the three people that they rejected their offer.
And even the people they are talking about that went there, I didn’t even discuss one percent of ‘if you get this contract’; contract of securing the country? What am I going to gain from it? As if to say when he pushes that, Fr Mbaka is no longer a Nigerian. And all the people they have been giving contracts, are they better than me?”
