Peo­ple want to cause fric­tion be­tween Buhari and me – Mbaka

Daily Trust - - NEWS -

The fa­mous Enugu Catholic Pri­est, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, has said that some Nige­ri­ans are bent on caus­ing dis­af­fec­tion be­tween Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari and him.

Fr Mbaka said con­trary to ear­lier me­dia re­ports that he made neg­a­tive pre­dic­tions con­cern­ing the pres­i­dent’s ill­health, he merely made ref­er­ence to the re­ported claims by Nige­rian doc­tors.

He said yes­ter­day that some Nige­rian doc­tors had ex­pressed fears over the chances of Pres­i­dent Buhari re­cov­er­ing from his ill­ness.

Mbaka, who is in charge of the Ado­ra­tion Min­istry, Enugu, Nige­ria (AMEN), spoke through his me­dia aide, Barr Ike Max­imus Ug­wuoke, main­tain­ing that some Nige­ri­ans were try­ing to cause a rift be­tween him and the pres­i­dency by mis­quot­ing him.

He said, “Our at­ten­tion has been drawn to a re­port in a sec­tion of the me­dia al­leg­ing that Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka the Spir­i­tual Di­rec­tor of Ado­ra­tion Min­istry Enugu Nige­ria, had said that the Pres­i­dent of the Fed­eral Re­pub­lic of Nige­ria, Muham­madu Buhari has slim chances of sur­viv­ing from his ill-health.

The fact is that there were me­dia re­ports, mak­ing a fuss about Mr Pres­i­dent’s health and in­sin­u­at­ing Mr Pres­i­dent‘s slim chances of re­cov­er­ing, pub­lished im­me­di­ately the pres­i­dent went on va­ca­tion.

Fr Mbaka re­fer­ring to the said me­dia re­port dur­ing his prayers for the sick in the min­istry, prayed with the wor­ship­pers of the min­istry for Mr Pres­i­dent’s heal­ing and health.”
