– Father Mbaka criticised President Buhari for economic hardship in Nigeria
– He warns the president that Nigerians may vote him out next time
– The preacher has also addressed the issue of the Niger Delta militants
Controversial Catholic priest Rev. Father Ejike Mbaka has sent a strong message to President Muhammadu Buhari in his latest sermon.
Father Mbaka has blasted the incumbent president over the economic hardship destroying the country resulting from what he defined as poor leadership under the Buhari-led government.
He stated that the president should know that Nigerians may vote him out in the next presidential election.
The preacher said that Nigerians are clearly getting tired continuing that he campaigned against the ex-president Goodluck Jonathan because of the extensive corruption in the last administration in the hope that Buhari’s government would be better after his avowed declaration to fight corruption.
According to Mbaka, “no nation could survive when the cankerworm of corruption eats deep into its social fabric as was witnessed in the past administration which informed his interest and desire to opt for a change.”
He said: “The change which eventually came under the leadership of Buhari is not helping matters as poverty is ”smelling” in Nigeria. Landlords are lamenting while tenants are hungry and frustrated.”
The fiery Catholic clergy also spoke on the agitation of militants in the Niger Delta especially the Niger Delta Avengers.
Father Mbaka questioned the rationale for calling the Niger Delta Avengers criminals who are in fact fighting a just cause considering the degree of damage done to the region’s ecosystem which has been feeding the nation for decades.
Catholic preacher became famousafter his controversial prediction that former president Jonathan would be swept away by the wind of change in the last presidential poll.
Mbaka was among those who predicted the victory of President Buhari and he is a frequent guest in Aso Rock presidential villa.
