Outspoken Catholic priest, Ejike Mbaka, has cautioned those cursing President Muhammadu Buhari warning them that they will be cursed.
He asserted this to faithful at his popular Adoration Ground in Enugu stressing that God is happy with President Buhari over his uncompromising stand on corruption.
“So I want to tell you that so far, God is happy with Buhari. And him whom God has blessed, may you not try to accurse, because God will curse you,” said the priest.
“Many people are planning, as it is revealed, to kill him. There are many plans on how to eliminate his life so that corruption will continue, so that quantum embezzlement will continue.
“But the Lord says ‘God who put you there will not forsake you. Be firm, be resolute, remain focused, and be unbiased. Refuse to be intimidated and refuse to be distracted. Go ahead and war against evil. President Buhari, go ahead and war against corruption. President Buhari, God and his people are behind you, you are the answer of the prayers of the people, amen.’”
Premium Times shared the undated footages where he also addressed hardship being experienced by Nigerians.
Some weeks ago, there were reports that the fiery priest who withdrew his support from ex-President Goodluck Jonathan to back the re-election of President Buhari is now displeased with the administration. But the statement was immediately debunked by the clergyman’s media handlers as fictitious.
The priest attributed the hardship to past leaders who corruptly enriched themselves and their cronies, adding that all of them – from local government chairmen to presidents – ought to be in exile by now.
“It doesn’t matter the man of God they worship with, I tell you before God and man, all of them are wicked. They hate this country,” he said.
“They succeeded in removing the liver, kidneys, and cardiovascular systems of this country, and paralyzed the neurological organs and handed over to Buhari, the new president, shambles, skeleton almost, a nation that is comatic.
“Nigeria right now, economically, security wise, is in the intensive care unit. If the oxygen is removed, Nigeria will go.
“The entire money voted for hospitals were looted out.
“Corruption was in quantum. To the level that the Nigerian bishops had to compose a prayer – Prayer against Bribery and Corruption, and assured all the Catholics to be praying that prayer every day after the Communion.
“All the money voted for road constructions were swindled, eaten. Many of them became millionaires and billionaires in Naira, in Dollars, in Pounds, in Euro. Billionaires, when they have no workshop, no business centre. Somebody who has nothing he’s doing, yet he’s a billionaire, because he’s a politician.”
