The Nigerian Presidency has revealed that the call for impeachment of the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, by a Catholic Priest and the founder of Adoration Ministry, Father Mbaka, is all because he came to the presidential villa to demand for contract, but was refused.
This was made known by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, via his verified Twitter handle @GarShehu on Friday.
Garba noted that the outspoken Catholic Priest, who supported President Buhari before his emergence as the president of Nigeria, came to Aso rock to meet the president in the company of three contractors, demanding for contract in compensation for his support for the president. However, the president, who does not like breaking laid down rules on contracts, directed him to walk through the right and appropriate authority for such.
The president’s spokeman noted further that the aftermath of this is the sudden and suprising turn around by the Man of God to start demanding for the resignation and/or impeachment of the President.
In his word, the President spokesman says:
An outsider distilling the avalanche of verbiage, will be surprised that after supporting the President two times to win the Presidency, Father Mbaka has made a complete U-Turn, preposterously asking President Buhari to resign or be impeached.
He noted further:
Here is the point of departure: Father Mbaka asked for a meeting and to the shock of Presidential Aides, he came accompanied by three contractors.
The President graciously allowed them in, and to everyone’s surprise, Father Mbaka asked for contracts as compensation for his support.
Anyone familiar with President Buhari knows that he doesn’t break the laid down rules in dealing with contracts or any other government business for that matter. He requested the appropriate authorities to deal with the matter in accordance with laid down rules.
Inside the Villa, discretion prevailed, that if those pictures and requests were made public, the followers will turn against the religious leader. None of it was released. Now, this is what is eating Father Mbaka.
