Father Mbaka turns against Buhari, warns against re-election bid

Fiery Catholic priest, Ejike Mbaka, has warned President Muhammadu Buhari against contesting in the 2019 presidential election.

According to Sun Newspaper, Mr. Mbaka, who gave the warning during his new year message at the Adoration ground in Enugu on Sunday, said the warning came from God.

“As I was waiting on the Lord, I’m asked to advise you, don’t come out for second tenure; after this, retire peacefully.

“Come back to yourself or you will cry by the time you will be sent out of office. Those who are encouraging you to come out and run again want to disgrace you shamefully and publicly,” Mr. Mbaka, the director of the Adoration Ministries in Enugu, said.

Before the presidential election, Mr. Mbaka had on January 1 2015 asked his followers to reject the incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan and vote for Mr. Buhari after criticising the Jonathan-led administration for its performance and corruption.

After Mr. Buhari’s inauguration, the cleric visited the presidential villa in Abuja where he shook hands and held a meeting with the president.

However, recent statements attributed to the clergyman suggests he is no longer in support of Mr. Buhari’s leadership.

On Sunday night, he blamed the president for the problems facing him and the country.

“Mr. President you are the cause of your own problem.

“God gave you an adviser, a wonderful mentor, a visionist, a matriarch, in the person of your wife, Aisha, but you don’t want to listen to her. That woman is heartbroken because she knows you are not yourself.”

He declared that if Mr. Buhari did not ‘sit up,’ another person would take his office.

“President Buhari must wake up and sit up immediately. Heaven demands Buhari, our President, to change all those who are holding and caging him in captivity. If he will not change them, he will be changed.

“Mr. President, wake up, sit up. God said you are toying with the privilege given to you. There is no time. Nigerians are dying in your hands. People are not happy with your system.

“Change or you will be changed – God said that Buhari is in trouble. Buhari is hypnotised. Buhari is in a horrible bondage. Buhari’s mantra has been cannibalised.

“Unless President Buhari quickly and strategically positions the right people and changes the former ones inaugurated by him, the wind of change, that he himself inaugurated, will blow him away shamefully.

“The wind will be too strong that Mr. President and the cabal will be blown out of office shamefully.

“The wind will be irresistible for it will come like a hurricane. Buhari can handle this problem but his office, if he is not careful, another will take.

“Change or you will be changed; after all, you are the one who introduced change as your mantra.”

The priest noted that 2017 was one of the most horrible years in Nigeria’s history, and demanded that the president change his ‘change agenda’, which he described as questionable.

Mr. Mbaka also faulted Buhari’s anti-corruption campaign.

“His 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.”

    Finally the demons that possessed Father Mbaka have been cast out. I enjoin all Nigerians who love peace to intensify their prayers so that the demons can go back to the swine and the swine and the Swine in Chief can all now run into river Jordan and drown there forever and ever, AMEN!

    Nigerians deserve better. The infectious demons of and at Aso Sock must be cast out in perpetuity.

    • pheliciti

      The demons are there full time. Anybody that sees vision now is possessed of demons.

  • Usher

    Equinox….. There MUST be balance in the universe.

  • MP-001* [Joint Chief]

    PT rephrase your headline. Nobody is turning against anybody. The same man that rightly told about his victory is now telling him to sit up. It not ‘turning against’, it is telling the truth.

  • Nnamdi Nwachuku

    i wish buhari will heed this honest call.

  • emmanuel

    Father Mbaka is a fake an confused man.
    If God brought Buhari according to his postulation in 2015, then Buhari is carrying out his task of heaping pains and punishments on Nigerians for their disobedience. But if that is not true, going by Buhari’s wickedness and nepotism, then Mbaka’s prophecies are fake.
    In both cases, he has demonstrated blindness to the things of God and must never be taken serious, like i have never done.

  • Say the truth

    “As I was waiting on the Lord, I’m asked to advise you, don’t come out for second tenure; after this, retire peacefully.
    “Come back to yourself or you will cry by the time you will be sent out of office. Those who are encouraging you to come out and run again want to disgrace you shamefully and publicly,” Mr. Mbaka, the director of the Adoration Ministries in Enugu, said. “Mr. President, wake up, sit up. God said you are toying with the privilege given to you. There is no time. Nigerians are dying in your hands. People are not happy with your system.” The two statements are contradictory. One is emphatic and had a tone of finality to it while the other appear apologetic and uncertain. Father which one are to believe. The first or the second.

      God bless you. You take out of me. This is how these people try to play on our intelligent. They forget that people are not dumb. Which one is he saying that would happen? This people are just spiritually arrogant. The knowledge of the future is only with God Almighty not with any other being. If he is so certain, let him say what would happen without any condition.

  • Anasieze Donatus

    The
    voice of the people, is the voice of God. The masses want PMB for the
    second term to complete his war on corruption and stealing of public
    fund. Rev Father Mbaka should pray to the same God to make it a possible
    success for PMB

  • Eyo

    That’s Mbaka opinion, Buhari does not need his vote or his followers to get re-elected. Talk about dishonest loyalty. He thinks supporting Buhari, like his predecessors when they – corrupt clergy and Imam used to go to Aso Rock with empty suit case and walk out with suit case full of money, that era is over Rev Father Mbaka.

    Pray for the president and Nigerians to change their altitude. Nigeria problems are created by Nigerians. until Nigerians change do not expect miracle. whether we like it or not, reform takes time, if Nigerians like, let them keep complaining and refusing to change for Nigeria to be better. Thats their business.

    If Buhari will win a land slide if he run for re-election. instead some of folks trying to sabotages his efforts just to prove evil but God pass man.they will fail in their evil ways and Nigeria will triumph over bad leadership

  • wode

    Let these people learn to keep quite for once. It’s the God that is in control not ANYBODY. The knowledge of the future is solely with God. Let Mbaka be specific of what would happen if in deed he has any knowledge of future. He should stop speaking out from both sides of his mouth.

  • Du Covenant

    Who is father Mbaka?, does any one believe Buhari won because of this man’s prophesies?. It is Nigerian voters that will decide should he decide to run again. We need to allow democracy take hold in Nigeria otherwise we are doomed!. Religion should be out of our national politics because it is a very dangerous mix.

    • Otile

      You are making too much out of corrupt Federal elections. APC rigging machine is formidable. Often the results are tabulated before the voting starts.

  • Biafran 1967

    I wish people would stop listening to these fraudsters who claim that they hear from God when it suits them. I suspect Buhari hasn’t helped this man so he claims God doesn’t want Buhari to contest. Basically elections work like this, each candidate sets out his/her policies and the voters choose their favourite. Whoever gets the most votes wins, simples. Nothing to do with celestial or spiritual beings or apparitions, just a simple exercise in democracy invented by the Greeks centuries before Jesus was born in Palestine.

  • Jo Elue

    Keep your thoughts Mr Mbaka. It’s a democracy. Ultimate power belongs to the people. Devote your time and energy winning souls for Christ. Sadly you are not doing that.
