‘Go ahead and report me to the Pope’ – Father Mbaka replies APC

Catholic priest and Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry, Fr Ejike Mbaka says the All Progressives Congress, APC, should go ahead with its threat of reporting him to the Pope.

The clergyman was responding to Yekini Nabena, Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the APC who in a statement said calling on President Muhammadu Buhari to either resign or be impeached because of the current challenges is ungodly.

Mbaka addressed the threat and other issues raised last week during his sermon on Sunday.

“If the Pope knows I am speaking against bad governance, he will clap for me. So please, quickly go to Rome.

“Why I don’t even want them to go to Rome is because, if Rome hears about this, they may give me a position I don’t like.” he said.

Responding to the Presidency’s allegation that he was only criticising the government of President Buhari because he wasn’t awarded contracts, the clergyman admitted that he led three men to President Muhammadu Buhari for contracts during his first term.

He said the three men were security experts who had offered to help in solving Nigeria’s security challenges.

“These three men we brought that will handle insecurity in this country, they have the facility. That was during the first administration. They said they will help them to handle this insecurity under one month. I just handed them over to the government and they denied them.” He said.

“I don’t even know these people, they came to Enugu and say can I help them reach government, that the level of insecurity and how Nigeria has been shipping oil outside the country to refine them and moving them back, that we are losing.

“They have all it takes to revive oil apparatus in the country and get the whole youth employed and the issue of insecurity will die.

“These are the three people they rejected their offer. Since they know how to talk, am I begging them?,” he further stated.
