President Muhammadu Buhari has said that
one of the best exhortations to the nation he
has heard from the pulpit was the one made
early this year by Father Ejike Mbaka of the
Adoration Ministries, Enugu.
Receiving Father Mbaka who was on a
courtesy call at State House, Abuja on Friday,
President Buhari expressed his appreciation of
the Catholic priest’s exemplary courage.
“Thank you very much for what you have done
and said. It brought you out to the whole
country as a man of courage. It was honest
and well delivered. It has gone into the
records as one of the best concerns expressed
from the pulpit, not because it favoured me
and my party, the All Progressives Congress,
but because it was good for the country, ” the
President told Father Mbaka.
President Buhari reaffirmed his conviction that
change will come to the country, “with a lot of
hard work, despite the security and economic
problems.” He appealed for the continued
understanding and patience of Nigerians.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, who was
present at the President’s audience with
Father Mbaka described the priest as a man
“who stood for truth and propriety, and
declared corruption unacceptable.”
He added that the Buhari administration “is
committed to truth and justice, and won’t
encourage corruption in any way.”
Fr. Mbaka, who in the run up to the 2015
presidential election, told his teeming
followers that erstwhile President Goodluck
Jonathan would not be re-elected because of
pervading corruption and insecurity in the
land, said he was happy with the mission and
methodology of the Buhari administration.
He also wished the President a happy 73rd
