By Nkoli Opara (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The Presidency has alleged that fiery Catholic cleric, Father Mbaka, is angry with the administration of President Buhari because his request for contracts was flatly turned down.
This came in the wake of Mbaka’s call on the National Assembly, at a church service, to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari from office for failing to arrest the worsening security situation in the country.
The Presidency’s response to Mbaka’s charge came via a statement on Friday by its spokesperson, Garba Shehu.
“An outsider distilling the avalanche of verbiage will be surprised that after supporting the President two times to win the Presidency, Father Mbaka has made a complete U-Turn, preposterously asking President Buhari to resign or be impeached.
“Here is the point of departure: Father Mbaka asked for a meeting and to the shock of Presidential Aides, he came accompanied by three contractors. The President graciously allowed them in, and to everyone’s surprise, Father Mbaka asked for contracts as compensation for his support,” Shehu disclosed.
Mbaka, who had supported President Muhammadu Buhari’s two term Presidential bids has become one of his strictest critics of late, especially with the worsening state of insecurity in the country .
