ENUGU – Firebrand cleric, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu has congratulated General Muhammadu Buhari on his victory at the presidential election and worn him to seek divine wisdom before choosing people he would work with.
Mbaka, whose New Year Message entitled “From Goodluck to Badluck” elicited mixed reactions across the country, described Buhari’s emergence as a divine victory for Nigerians.
The priest, in a press briefing, through the spokesman of the ministry, Barr. Maximus Ike Ugwuoke, urged the President-Elect to devote attention in tackling the myriads of problems facing the country.
“It is with vindictive joy and glory to God that Adoration ministry, the nation and indeed the world saw the fulfillment of Fr Mbaka’s New Year prophesy of Change with the miraculous victorious emergence of General Muhammed Buhari at the March 28th polls as the President Elect of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“We wish to restate that before President Goodluck became the President of this country, Fr Mbaka prophesied it in his message titled ‘Okolo’.
“Today again, Buhari’s victory among other lessons it portends to Nigerians has once more confirmed to all and sundry that Fr Mbaka is indeed a true Prophet of God and that His New Year message was indeed from the Oracle of the Holy Spirit as he declared.
“The ministry with magnanimous heart holds no grudges against anyone who attacked it in one way or the other at the rage of the controversies surrounding Fr Mbaka’s message and view their actions as being orchestrated by their misconstruing of Fr Mbaka’s prophetic calling.
“The Ministry joins other Nigerians to congratulate Muhammadu Buhari as God’s chosen instrument of Change to tackle the myriad problems facing Nigeria and pray God to endow him with the wisdom to go about this onerous task.
“We see Buhari’s victory as divine victory to all Nigerians irrespective of our religious and ethnic divide”, he stated.
The Cleric was, however, quick to advise Buhari to seek divine wisdom before choosing people he would work with.
“The prayer of Fr. Mbaka is that God will give Buhari the wisdom not to surround himself with wrong people, that was the major problem Jonathan’s administration faced.
“Fr. Mbaka has advocated that Nigerians should be patient with Buhari…
“However, if the patience of Nigerians is exhausted, if Buhari fails to deliver, Fr. Mbaka will be the first to cast the stone”, he stated.
