Catholic Priest and Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Fr Ejike Mbaka, has responded to the claim by the presidency that he demanded for contracts for supporting President Muhammadu Buhari.
Presidential Spokesman, Garba Shehu made the claim while reacting to Mbaka’s call for Buhari’s resignation over the high level of insecurity in the country.
According to him, Fr Mbaka asked for a meeting with the president and came along with three contractors.
Responding, Mbaka while speaking on Sunday at the Adoration Ministry in Enugu confirmed that he took three contractors to tackle insecurity during Buhari’s first term not for himself.
According to him, he had no personal relationship with the three men that he took to the presidency.
Mbaka said, “I’m not here to defend any allegation, but the three men he mentioned are people that could have handled the nation’s insecurity. This was during Buhari’s first term and these men told them they can help conquer insecurity.
“These men had the platform to end insecurity within one month. This was under Abba Kyari. I just handed them over to government. They only asked me to help them reach government and offered to help insecurity, revive the nation’s economy through putting an end to theft of crude oil and providing employment.
“Anyone who says the truth is branded a terrorist.
“Are those given contracts better than me? They have shown that they don’t have a reward mechanism.
“The last person this administration should fight is Fr Mbaka.”
