Rev. Fr. Mbaka Congratulates Buhari, Asks Him To Be Careful In Picking His LieutenantsFeatured, Latest News, Nigeria 2015 Election Thursday, April 2nd, 2015
FROM IGNATIUS OKPARA, Enugu – Enugu based outspoken Catholic priest, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu has congratulated General Muhammadu Buhari of the All progressive Congress, APC on his victory at the presidential poll.
The cleric, whose New Year Message entitled “From Goodluck to Badluck” drew mixed reactions across Nigeria, described Buhari’s emergence as a divine victory for the entire Nigerians.
Mbaka, who spoke to newsmen on Thursday in Enugu through the public Relations officer, PRO of the ministry, Barr. Maximus Ike Ugwuoke, urged the President-Elect to devote attention in tackling the myriads of problems facing Nigeria.
“It is with vindictive joy and glory to God that Adoration ministry, the nation and indeed the world saw the fulfillment of Fr Mbaka’s New Year prophesy of Change with the miraculous victorious emergence of General Muhammdu Buhari at the March 28th polls as the President- Elect of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“We wish to reinstate that before President Goodluck became the President of this country, Fr Mbaka prophesied it in his message titled “Okolo”.
“Today again, Buhari’s victory among other lessons it portents to Nigerians has once more confirmed to all and sundry that Fr Mbaka is indeed a true Prophet of God and that His New Year message was indeed from the Oracle of the Holy Spirit as he declared.
“The ministry with magnanimous heart holds no grudges against anyone who attacked it in one way or the other at the rage of the controversies surrounding Fr Mbaka’s message and view their actions as being orchestrated by their misconstruing of Fr Mbaka’s prophetic calling.
“The Ministry joins the rest of Nigerians to congratulate Muhammadu Buhari as God’s chosen instrument of Change to tackle the myriads of problems facing Nigeria and pray God to endow him with the wisdom to go about this onerous task.
“We see Buhari’s victory as divine victory to all Nigerians irrespective of our religious and ethnic divide”, he stated.
The Cleric was, however, quick to advise Buhari to seek divine wisdom before choosing people he would work with.
“The prayer of Fr. Mbaka is that God will give Buhari wisdom not to surround himself with wrong people; that was the major problem Jonathan’s administration faced.
“Fr. Mbaka has advocated that Nigerians should be patient with Buhari because the holes dug in the country are too much- holes of corruption, holes of unemployment, among others.
“However, if the patience of Nigerians is exhausted, if Buhari fails to deliver, Fr. Mbaka will be the first to cast the stone”, he declared.
