Controversial Catholic priest Rev. Father Ejike Mbaka has sent a strong message to President Muhammadu Buhari in his latest sermon.
Father Mbaka has blasted the incumbent president over the economic hardship destroying the country resulting from what he defined as poor leadership under the Buhari-led government.
He stated that the president should know that Nigerians may vote him out in the next presidential election. The preacher said that Nigerians are clearly getting tired continuing that he campaigned against the ex-president Goodluck Jonathan because of the extensive corruption in the last administration in the hope that Buhari’s government would be better after his avowed declaration to fight corruption.
According to Mbaka, “no nation could survive when the cankerworm of corruption eats deep into its social fabric as was witnessed in the past administration which informed his interest and desire to opt for a change.” He said: “The change which eventually came under the leadership of Buhari is not helping matters as poverty is ”smelling” in Nigeria.
Landlords are lamenting while tenants are hungry and frustrated.” “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.
I don’t need the president; I need God, I need the Holy Spirit, I need Jesus; there is suffering everywhere, people are suffering.
