Reactions have trailed the call for President Muhammadu Buhari’s impeachment by Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, Catholic Priest and Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu State.
Mbaka on Wednesday said that Buhari had failed Nigeria woefully and should resign now.
The Cleric urged the Senate and members of the House of Representatives to impeach the President if he refuses to resign.
He explained that the same God that told him to support Buhari and Hope Uzodinma has now told him to withdraw and prophesy against them.
Reacting, some Nigerians commended Mbaka for the call, while others accused him of misleading Nigerians to vote for Buhari.
Here are some comments gathered:
@olathrives, the u-turn of Fr Mbaka has no effect as far I am concerned. Is that enough for PMB to step down? The deed has been done already. This is just a big lesson to everyone who just recommends people without in depth analysis. Not only Buhari failed but also those who sold him to NIG.”
@firstladyship, ”Fr Mbaka must be protected, at all cost. Now he has praised Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the DSS might pick him up. We know that Mbaka belong to the five percenters. Unlike Sheikh Gumi & Isa Pantami. Criticizing the federal government of Nigeria, should never be a criminal offense. NEVER!”
@annnikkym, ”Fr. Mbaka misled his followers to vote for buhari as the messiah God sent to Nigeria and he prophesied that Hope Uzodinma will emerge as Governor of Imo State and since the duo refused to pick his calls, he makes a u-turn to bless Nnamdi kanu and calls for Buhari’s impeachment smiling face with open mouth.”
@Okeemichael, ”After Imo State Supreme Court Governor refused to pick Fr. Mbaka’s call, he suddenly asked Buhari to resign or face impeachment. The election is over, no one to contribute to his church. Peter Obi & GEJ should be laughing by now.”
@OvragwaJonathan, ”Fr Mbaka should enjoy his deceptive prophesies and leave baba Buhari alone . If we have been able to survive the worst past 6 years of this Government we can by God’s grace complete 2more years. Lessons: clerics shouldn’t support these politicians. They are all the same.”
@ludofia1, ”God is not an author of confusion Fr Mbaka that said God told him PMB is the solution to Nigeria turn around to criticize his former main man is a pointer that he belongs to stomach infrastructure group now that he is praising MNK perhaps he is cashing out don’t take him serious.”
@_Brainie, ”Not all Pastor hears from God, Pastor Tunde Bakare and Father Mbaka coming to tell us back then that God told them that Buhari will stabilise Nigeria, now Fr Mbaka has made u-turn not supporting Buhari again, maybe they have stopped paying the man tithes and offerings.”
@Johncally29, ”But God made kings and dethroned the same kings in the same scripture. God never tampers with human wills. That’s why when you begin to do what he didn’t expect from you as a king, he will dethrone you. Mbaka is not wrong.
@JahMan, ”Mbaka is evil man, we don’t need him in Biafra land. Please stop praying for mazi Nnamdi Kanu, we don’t need your prayers.
@yommy_dee411, ”Fr Mbaka with his impulsive U-turn is a living example of how religious leaders bastardize their authorities. Instead of teaching freedom as scripted, they’d rather teach their interests; mislead/enslaving God’s people. Your day of reckoning is nearer than you think.”
