Enugu Catholic Priest, the Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, yesterday said some Nigerians had cultivated the habit of sowing seeds of discord between him and the government of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Mbaka said contrary to earlier reports that he made negative predictions concerning the President’s ill health, he merely alluded to a reported claims by doctors.
The priest, who is in charge of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Nigeria, spoke through his media Chief, Barr Ike Maximus Ugwuoke, insisting that some Nigerians were trying to cause disaffection between him and the presidency.
He said, “our attention has been drawn to a report alleging that Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria 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.”
He quoted Mbaka as saying that “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.
He added that some persons were nose-diving in the affairs of the ministry with a view to causing unnecessary rift between the ministry and the presidency.
