Outspoken Catholic priest, Rev. Fr. Ejike
Mbaka » , has been in the news for allegedly
attacking President Muhammadu Buhari » in his
new message entitled 'Bless and Be Blessed.'
Following the reactions from different quarters, the founder
of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Nigeria (AMEN) has
clearly stated his views in a new statement through his
spokesman, Maximus Ugwuoke .
Blaming ex-President Goodluck Jonathan for the saddling
President Buhari with the current economic challenges as a
result of wasted resources, Mbaka's new message is titled
Read his exact views here
“ There is sword that is moving about in the country. People are
dying like flies. The sword of Hunger is eating the land. And as
I have told you this is just the beginning. If anybody is telling
you it is going to be well very soon that person is deceiving
you. This is because many of us were among those that were
alive during the years of the past government. The past PDP
government was a grasshopper and locus to Nigerian. The past
Government was a disaster to the land of Nigeria; the past
government was cancer to this country. There is no need trying
to cover their incalculable and iniquitous mess. If you don’t feel
it now, you will feel it later.

"The impact of their horrific mess is yet to be felt. It was a
regime where hooliganism became a political slogan; where
looting became the order of the day; where the neglect of
youths became a pattern of administration. The result is what
we are passing through now. Hunger is everywhere; the hunger
was created before this new government came in. Buhari is not
the maker of the hunger.
"The hunger was created during the Jonathan PDP
administration but Buhari should abate the long
procrastination, bureaucracy and slow methods in tackling it.
“Understand it very well. People will know the truth and the
truth will set us free. Buhari is just an agent of change. The
money in our treasury was nothing to write home about before
this new regime came. The country was in an embarrassing
"Apart from the petroleum that we sell and get money, what
other means of foreign exchange do we have? The foundation
of the Nigerian economy is oil which has now collapsed and the
foundation once destroyed what will the just man do? Psalm
11:3. The past administration did not prepare this
administration for this season. That is why the sword has
risen. Many will die by this sword but there will be survivors.
"That is why I have been saying and I keep on saying that the
past administration should publicly come to apologize to the
Nigerians. They should not be foolhardy. They should not
continue to perpetrate this type of iniquitous attitude planning
about 2019 election for them to continue from where they
stopped. All these years of Jonathan, nothing happened in
Niger-Delta specifically to be recorded in the annals of history.
What a shame? What an embarrassment. The place where the
oil has been coming from remained underdeveloped under a
man from the same soil. If you go to Niger Delta today you will
cry. But what worries me is that our people are good in shifting
"Somebody entered your kitchen carried your pot of soup, enter
your store and farm raked everything in the store and farm and
ran away. And another person enters the kitchen where there is
no pot at all and you want the person to turn the kitchen into a
magical kitchen that will produce a magical pot and a magical
soup, which soup?

suffering »
“I am just telling president Buhari that people are hungry
because he cannot not come to the street like me and notice
people’s feelings. But Buhari is not the author of the hunger.
The past government planted the tree of hunger and they want
to come back to water it. If it is in a developed country by now
from the Senatorial to the reps to the governors, all who
participated in the last administration should have resigned
with apologies to our youths, otherwise the youths one day will
begin to stone them.
“They will soon confuse you that present governments don’t
want to feed you, feed you with what? It will surprise the whole
Nigerians to know that even after Buhari was a petroleum
minister and a military president of the country, he had no oil
bloc. Is it not a shock? Don’t you hear the quantum of money
that is being recovered from one person? Buhari just came as
a redeemer. I don’t know if the people of this country are
"How can we be fighting somebody who is fighting for us?
Apart from this Buhari, how can somebody talk to these
political juggernauts and tell them to bring back what they have
stolen? it is only a Beniah personality like Buhari that can enter
into the cave and catch a lion and kill a lion in a snow season
and come out. The president needs support. He doesn’t know
where to begin because there are many holes dug for him by the
past administration, and they carried the sand away expecting
him to cover the holes with what?”.
"He, therefore maintained that contrary to the media report Fr.
Mbaka "merely reinstated the obvious sufferings that Nigerian
are facing (which even the president himself had at points
acknowledged and sued for patience and perseverance) and
advised the president on the ways to tackle it i.e by engaging
economic gurus and listening to good advisers.
"We wonder which portion of the message could be viewed as
“an attack” or” bombing” of Mr President as twisted in the
media. The acclaimed message of the cleric to Mr President to
us is rather a further demonstration the cleric’s love to see that
the president succeeds in his messianic rescue operation
mission in Nigeria and that is why it is devoid of hypocrisy.
"It is obvious that those who are arm-twisting the said
message of the cleric to Mr President as an attack on Mr
President are those who want the president to fail or be
blindfolded so as to use the obvious hardship Nigerians are
facing as a weak point of his administration to ride onto power
mindless of the fact that Mr President has done so well in
fighting corruption and insurgency in the country, which are
mega achievements that scores him above average in just few
months of his administration

"In the background of the message, Fr Mbaka encouraged the
gallant warrior, President Buhari, to continue his battle against
corruption and insurgency asserting that if not a man like
President Buhari, by now people may have stopped going to
church and mosques. Boko Haram might have wrecked this
country. People might have equally stopped going to schools,
markets etc. Kudos to Buhari .Fr Mbaka revealed that
corruption, insurgency and poor governance by past
governments gave birth to three horrible children (1) Hunger (2)
Anger (3) Danger.
"He asserted that Buhari is not the cause of corruption and
insurgency yet he is fighting them frontally and enjoined the
president to extend same to hunger even though he is not the
cause. He pleaded the President to begin a War against
Hunger, as many are dying hopelessly. He stressed that if the
hunger, anger and danger continue, Nigerians may not vote for
him again, as they would mistake him for the cause of these
maladies while in fact he is a solution.
"Fr Mbaka equally advised the President on being careful about
how he appoints people to prominent positions, so that no
region will appear marginalized- as happened in NNPC board
and charged the President to make sure that those around him
are not misguiding him. He advised the President on human
empowerment and making sure that those who worked for him
(Buhari) during the election ought to be empowered –as one
good turn deserves another.
"For the purpose of clarity, granted that Fr Mbaka stated the
obvious , that there is hunger in the land, he never attributed
the cause of the hunger and economic hardship bedeviling the
nation to Buhari rather he attributed it to the offshoot of the
actions and inactions of the past administrations of this
"We recall that earlier this year, Fr Mbaka had during his New
Year message predicted that hunger and hardship will come
upon the country this year and so we wonder why this message
should make a headline at this point of the year ," the
statement reads in full.
Few months back Rev. Mbaka had reportedly said he saw
Buhari's health in bad shape » and later reportedly
criticized the current administration, which he had publicly
supported against the last administration
