Enugu Catholic Priest, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, has said that some Nigerians are bent on causing disaffection between President Muhammadu Buhari and him.
Fr Mbaka said contrary to earlier media reports that he made negative predictions concerning the president’s ill-health, he merely made reference to the reported claims by Nigerian doctors.
He said yesterday that some Nigerian doctors had expressed fears over the chances of President Buhari recovering from his illness.
Mbaka, who is in charge of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Nigeria (AMEN), spoke through his media aide, Barr Ike Maximus Ugwuoke, maintaining that some Nigerians were trying to cause a rift between him and the presidency by misquoting him.
He said, “Our attention has been drawn to a report in a section of the media alleging that Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria, had said that the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari has slim chances of surviving from his ill-health.
The fact is that there were media reports, making a fuss about Mr President’s health and insinuating Mr President‘s slim chances of recovering, published immediately the president went on vacation.
Fr Mbaka referring to the said media report during his prayers for the sick in the ministry, prayed with the worshippers of the ministry for Mr President’s healing and health.”
