Priest and Spiritual Director of the Adoration Ministries, Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka has informed President Muhammadu Buhari to change before Nigerians change him in 2019.
Father Mbaka, who was a staunch supporter of President Buhari during his 2015 campaign, has asked that the president not contests for re-election come 2019.
In a long sermon given at the New Year Eve service at the Adoration Ground, Emene, Enugu, Mbaka criticized the president on his “archaic” anti-corruption campaign, saying he is not a real president. He said:
“His (Buhari’s) pattern of battling corruption is not just archaic and barbaric; it is a witch-hunt, terribly selective.
“Mr Buhari, as the President, why should you be picking and choosing those that you and your so-called EFCC man would want to arrest so that your party becomes a hideout for criminals so that any person who does not want to be arrested will become an APC person? Is that not corruption in itself?
“It is the same people that go to the APC, they drop their umbrella and pick the broom, but instead of using the broom to sweep away corruption, they are using it to sweep money into their pockets.
“Your change mantra is questionable. You are to change your change or you will be disgraced out of office.
“The spirit of God says that Mr President is just President in the mouth – he is not the real President per say. He is a pseudo-President, people are running the government the way they like and giving him articles to sign.
“Mr President doesn’t know what is happening in his government, what a pity.”
