The Presidency went on the offensive on Friday as it told Nigerians that Father Ejike Mbaka of the Adoration Ministry Enugu, has turned against President Muhammadu Buhari After President Declined to Give Him Contracts.
Presidential aide, Garba Shehu, stated this in a statement made available to the NPO Reports Friday evening.

FATHER MBAKA IS EVERYTHING APART FROM WHAT HE CLAIMS TO BE
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.
Anyone familiar with President Buhari knows that he doesn’t break the laid down rules in dealing with contracts or any other government business for that matter. He requested the appropriate authorities to deal with the matter in accordance with laid down rules.
Inside the Villa, discretion prevailed, that if those pictures and requests were made public, the followers will turn against the religious leader. None of it was released. Now, this is what is eating Father Mbaka.
