“The President should know that there is trouble” – Fr. Mbaka

Published

on

mbaka-aso2Catholic priest and Spiritual Director of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu State, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, has bemoaned the hardship in the land, warning that if the problem persists, President Muhammadu Buhari can as well kiss his 2019 aspiration goodbye.

The priest, who recently blamed the immediate past Goodluck Jonathan administration’s wastefulness for the economic hardship currently being faced by Nigerians, said that “hunger is everywhere” now.

Mbaka, a vocal supporter of the president, insinuated that Mr. Buhari is surrounded by charlatans and praise singers, who are not telling him the true situation of things in the country, advising him to appoint the right set of people.

The controversial cleric, who recently celebrated his 21st anniversary of priesthood, in a message delivered to members of his congregation on July 23, details of which were only just obtained last night, said he would not spare the president the “raw truth”, despite their perceived closeness.

He said: “The issue is that Mbaka is speaking as the Spirit leads him – there is hunger everywhere. My job is to tell leaders the truth, the landlords are crying, the tenants are lamenting, sellers are crying, buyers are lamenting – there is hunger on the streets.

“I can’t keep quiet when things are going wrong.

“I am telling the President to look around him and know those who are advising him rightly and those who are telling him that there is no trouble.

“The President should know that there is trouble – if things continue like this, in the next election, nobody will vote for him.

“Whether they like it or not, I am speaking the raw truth.

“If the President should have somebody like me and he cannot be talking with me, then there is a problem.

“There is a problem somewhere; somebody who can advise you without asking for anything and he is representing the poor masses in the country and he won’t tell you lies.

“He will praise you when you are doing well and when you are not doing well, he will look at you in the face and tell you”.

Continuing, he said, “I don’t need the President; I need God, I need the Holy Spirit, I need Jesus; there is suffering everywhere, people are suffering.

“To feed is now a problem, and an hungry man is an angry man.

“Hunger and anger will lead to danger.

“So, let him know whether he can do away with some advisers around him and bring in the people who are experts in economic revamp.

“There are people who are experts in that; let them begin to empower people, people are not empowered, they are still walking around in vicious circles, planning and planning and planning”.

Mbaka said there were no spaces left in mortuaries across the country.

“Hunger is everywhere, many neighbours don’t eat again, many are being attacked by hunger, hunger is becoming a normal thing and there are people responsible for this.

“Mortuary and ambulance business is now thriving because many cannot afford drugs.

“In today’s Nigeria, many are becoming hawkers, who will buy from you, with what?

“Every day, more pipelines are being blown, the Avengers are at work and up till now, there is no solution.

“You know when certain things begin to happen, you begin to ask some questions, somebody like me will begin to ask – when will this end?

“If it continues in the next three months, there will be no money to pay salaries – the vicious effect is disastrous and when salaries cannot be paid, teachers will come home, students will stop going to school, there will be more kidnappings, more hooliganism, more armed robbery, more prostitution, immorality will be on the increase”.

He urged the president to sit up and stop going after the leadership of the Senate.

“So, the President should sit up – there is a red light blinking on the country.

“The issue of Saraki and Ekweremadu, nobody wants to listen to such stories any more, whether Saraki is the President of the Senate or Ekweremadu is not this or that, the countrymen are tired of such stories.

“We need economic experts, gurus, sages that are sincere, who can come in and think about our economic revamp and judicial reformation”.

    As always, Fr. Mbaka is spot on. Buhari and Osinbajo will do well to listen to him. I wonder whether those who are sabotaging their efforts both within and without realize how close Nigeria is to a revolution in which none of them may be spared.
