A key supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari and chieftain of the APC, Yekini Nabena, has warned Fr Ejike Mbaka that he risks being exposed for who he is if he continues on his crusade against the president.
Nabena, who is the deputy national publicity secretary of the APC cautioned Mbaka, the spiritual director of Adoration Ministry, against the recent call from the Catholic priest on Buhari to resign or face impeachment.
GreenWhiteGreen GWG reports that Mbaka was one of the leading champions of Buhari prior to the 2015 and 2019 presidential elections. He, however, turned his back on the president during a recent ministration to his faithful.
Reacting to Mbaka in a statement made available to GreenWhiteGreen GWG on Friday, Nabena flayed the cleric as unfortunately departing from the way saying that a man of God “who is supposed to deploy all known spiritual means of averting crisis but rather threatening a democratically elected government for his own personal benefit while pretending to be speaking for the people.”
Drawing reference from Mark 4:35-40 on how Jesus, The Christ, refused to blame anyone else as he calmed the storm he met on the way but calmed the storm, he said:
“One will wonder whom Father Mbaka is emulating because the Lord Jesus Christ did not threaten to bring down the government during his own time, in fact, Jesus Christ obeyed and honoured constituted authority. That’s why he paid his tax.
“We are calling on Father Mbaka to concentrate on his spiritual calling and stop speaking like politicians who it is obvious he (Mbaka) has been dining and wining with. If Mbaka has found another political ally, it is better to leave political message for politicians.
“Calling on President Muhammadu Buhari to either resign or be impeached because of the current challenges is ungodly. Father Mbaka should not, however, take his luck too far because there are lot to tell the Vatican and the Pope about his person and his sources of inspiration.”
Nabena also called on other clerics to emulate the likes of Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) and Pastor WF Kumuyi of the Deeper Life Bible Ministry and many other true men of God who will rather fast and pray to avert crisis in the country instead of threatening the government of the day.
