Adoration Ministry Spiritual Director Rev. Father Ejike Mbaka has admitted meeting President Muhammadu Buhari with three white men over a contract.
Mbaka, an ardent supporter of Buhari until recently, had told worshippers in Enugu last Wednesday that the President had failed the nation and ought to resign.
Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, said the clergyman was angry with the President for allegedly refusing to circumvent contract award procedures for him.
Mbaka, according to the President’s spokesman, had sought an audience with the President, but to the chagrin of presidential aides, he came with three contractors, demanding that he be compensated for his support with contracts to his friends.
In the now-viral video obtained by The Nation where he was delivering a sermon, the Catholic priest said the contract in question was a “contract of securing the country”.

Mbaka explained that the meeting was during Buhari’s first term when he went to “hand over” three white men he never knew but who said, “they had the platform to end insecurity in this country under one month”.
He said: “When they talked about giving Father Mbaka contracts, I don’t want to talk about that, I was laughing. It is a laughable, childish accusation. Whoever is saying that is a shame to himself and shame to the people he is representing. The three men he talked about, I am not here to defend anybody’s stupid allegation, but God used that man to tell the world that Buhari’s government is not giving me money.
“Shehu, may God bless you for telling everybody that you are not giving me a contract. And these are the three men that we brought that will handle insecurity for the country; they had the gadgets. The white people had the facilities. That was during the first administration.
“They said they will help them in conquering insecurity. They had the platform to end insecurity in this country under one month; under Abba Kyari. I just handed them over to the government people. They denied them of this.
“I don’t even know these people. They just came to Enugu and said, can I help them reach the government, that the level of insecurity in this country and how Nigeria has been shipping their oil out, refining and bringing them back, that we are losing.
“That they have all it takes to revive the oil apparatus in the country and get the whole youths employed and the issue of insecurity will die. These are the three people they rejected their offer since they know how to talk.”
