Popular Enugu-based Catholic priest, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, has said that he never received any gratification to back the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Muhammadu Buhari, contrary to what some people might be thinking.
The man of God stressed that he only spoke the mind of frustrated Nigerians, who are not happy with the present administration of President Goodluck Jonathan.
“Some people said the APC people and Buhari had given me money but I have never seen Buhari before; I don’t know him. Buhari’s one kobo, as I talk to you, has never touched my hand. I don’t know him; God in heaven is my witness. I am just the voice of the voiceless, the sorrowful and the cheated and frustrated Nigerians.”
“He (Jonathan) says it shall be well but until when? Is it until you die? If my message will stir them into action, thank God it has achieved its purpose. I am not a politician; my job is to raise my voice from the sanctuary here. The same God that helped the Israelites to cross the red sea, did he not punish them in the desert?” he stated.
Speaking further, Mbaka warned Nigerians to stop praising government for providing the basic amenities they are saddled with to do.
According to him, “Nobody should praise any government for constructing roads because that is the job of the government. If you come to my church and I give you Holy Communion, is that an achievement? It is the duty of a mother to breastfeed her child; it is not an achievement.”
