The controversial Catholic preacher Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka has stated that some Nigerians are trying to cause a rift between Adoration Ministry in Enugu and the administration of Muhammadu Buhari.
The cleric has made U-turn saying that contrary to recent media reports that he claimed that Buhari wouldn’t survive his illnes s, he merely make reference to the reported claims by doctors.
Mr. Mbaka said that Nigerian doctors had expressed fears over the chances of the president’s recovering from his illness.
However, according to him, he prayed against that.
The prominent man of God issued a statement on June 30 via his media Chief, Barr Ike Maximus Ugwuoke.
The statement reads: “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 in Enugu said that the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari has slim chances of surviving from his ill health.
“The true fact is that there were media reports, making fuss about Mr. President’s health and insinuating Mr. President‘s slim chances of recovering from his ill health, 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 after which there were lots of testimonies from the sick that were healed of blindness, elephantiasis, deafness, cancer, tumor and all other diverse healings at the end of the prayer session.”
“They say the sickness is E.N.T. When it affects, the ear, it affects the nose and affects the neck. We pray for our president and any one that is suffering such a dangerous disease.
“We lift our healing hands for divine healing upon our president. Wherever he is, may he be healed in Jesus name.
The Adoration Ministry added that some people were nose-diving in the affairs of the ministry with a view to causing unnecessary rift between and Buhari’s administration.
Father Mbaka was among those clerics who foreseen the victory of Muhammadu Buhari in the last year presidential election.
Earlier this year the preacher advised President Buhari to be on his guards, predicting that supposed beneficiaries of massive corruption perpetrated during former president Goodluck Jonathan’s government would plot to kill him.
Buhari since assuming the office on May 29, 2015, has launched a fiercy campaign against the corruption in Nigeria.
On June 10, Monday, the president took ten-day vacation and traveled to London for rest and medical checkup.
However, he returned to Nigeria two weeks after, saying that he feels better.
