Last year, Enugu Catholic priest and spiritual director of the Adoration Ministry, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka stunned Nigerians with his prophecy that former President Goodluck would be booted out of office and would be replaced at the helm by Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, a prophecy that long came to pass.
Speaking again in his New Year message to Nigerians during an end-of-year adoration service in Enugu yesterday, Rev. Fr. Mbaka alerted the nation to an ongoing plot to kill President Buhari.
Said he: “I am not a sycophant; but I want to tell you that so far God is happy and he who God has blessed none can curse. Many people are planning to kill Buhari; there are many plans on how to eliminate him so that corruption will continue; so that embezzlement will continue.
“But I speak to Buhari that God who put you there will protect you; be firm, remain resolute, don’t be intimidated; President Buhari, God and his people are behind you, you are the answer to the prayer of His people.
He needs all the support, unstoppable support; spiritual and otherwise; because if he is not the man in power now, had it been the last regime continued, by now, Nigeria would be for sale. All the monies voted to buy this and but that few people stole it; but we see joblessness, many have died because of a few people, and these same people want to use you to engineer crisis that Igbo are marginalized, nobody is marginalized; nobody marginalized us;
“Can you eat your cake and still have it? Our past looters, not leaders, you may not understand, thieves in political positions, have eaten the cake of this country and now everybody is suffering it; the youths are suffering it, they want to tell you that you are marginalized; the Yorubas are not marginalized; the Hausas are not marginalized, Efik people are not marginalized; and it is only you people that are marginalized.
“In the present political scenario, the Igbo have the position of minister for external affairs in the person of Onyeama; the Igbo people have the position of science and tech in the person of Ogbonnaya Onu; if you go to Abia, you have industry and commerce, coming back to Anambra you have labour and productivity and the problem of our country today is unemployment and once there are jobs, there will be no kidnapping.
“The Igbo in the North are doing well; the Igbo in the West too, go to Alaba, they are treated with kindness, why are we engineering things that don’t exist; and like I said before, those saying this have their children abroad and they want to use you.”
