Fr. Mbaka Cannot Keep Quiet Now, It’s Time to Speak Out – House of Reps Aspirant

Chief Edozie Njoku who also worked as an agent for President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2007 pres­idential election, yester­day, challenged the fiery preacher, Rev. Fr. Mbaka and other support­ers of the president to speak up now over the deadly attack of armed security agencies on Igbo youths during the 50th year anniversary of declaration of Biafra.
According to Breaking Times, Chief Njoku said that the respected voices across the Igbo land in particular and Nige­ria in general should all roundly condemn the attack and that anything short of that would amount to con­spiracy of silence on their part.
The former National Assembly hopeful said he is very disappointed with the way the Fed­eral Government has been handling issues that pertain to the Ig­bos, calling on the pres­ident to re-strategise.
“Enough is enough, soldiers don’t have to kill protesters, Buhari is supposed to be a fa­ther to all Nigerians irrespective of tribal, ethnic, religious or po­litical leanings, that is why he is addressed as the President of the Federal Republic of Ni­geria.
“Consider the level of havoc, mayhem and grief Fulani herdsmen have caused the na­tion, yet there is no record that the federal government and her security agencies has openly opened fire on them. Carrying on like this will give an impres­sion that some people are first class citizens while some others are mere slaves in their fa­therland.”
Chief Njoku who said he is a strong supporter of President Buhari’s disciplined character especially his anti-graft disposition pointed out that he is getting disap­pointed and dissatisfied with the way the gov­ernment of the day is treating the Igbos.
“That is why peo­ple like Fr Mbaka and myself who supported Buhari must now start crying out. Enough is enough of this selective justice and intimida­tion of the Igbos who are unarguably the ones giving Nigeria a life line through their patriot­ism and enterprise,” he declared
