FEW days after the wife of the President, Mrs Aisha Buhari visited the Catholic Adoration Ministry Enugu, its Spiritual Director, Rev Fr Camillus Ejike Mbaka, has cried out that enemies of peace and unity of the country are trying to cause rift between him and Buhari.
His note of alarm exclusively obtained by Daily Sun followed widespread rumour in some segments of the media, particularly, the social media that he had predicted and called for the break-up of the country in his message.
The fiery Catholic priest, who spoke through his Special Assistant and Media Chief, Mr. Ike Maximus Ugwuoke, said he was vilified, persecuted and attacked over his victory prophesy on Buhari, whom he had consistently prayed for as a God-sent to save the nation.
Explaining what happened, his media chief said: “This explains the only reason such a doctored portion of the message of the man of God five years ago, during President Jonathan’s administration should make the news and be a focal point at this point of the nation’s history.
“We state that Fr Mbaka as at date has not made any authoritative or decisive statement on the division of the country and those who are spearheading this propaganda have no business maneuvering his prophetic message to aid their agenda.
“The source of this information has been traced to one of his prophetic messages entitled ‘Prophetic Breakthrough,’ which he delivered many years ago (precisely in 2010) during the past administration when he was appraising the then leadership failures of the Jonathan administration and the attendant moral and infrastructure decadence, poverty, political impunity, insecurity in the North and the marginalisation of the people of Niger-Delta.
“It is very unfortunate that some unscrupulous people had to cut out what he said in two minutes out of the over 90 minutes video message he preached many years ago and began to spread it like wildfire in you-tube and other social media, quoting it as the position of the cleric on Biafra and his support for the division of Nigeria as though it was his recent message. It is regrettable that the cleric, in the said video forewarned those that would misquote him as he is being misquoted by some people for some obvious selfish ends.
“One begins to wonder why the architects of this propaganda failed to tell the world that in that same message, Fr Mbaka prayed for Nigeria’s breakthrough and that the ugly chain upon Nigeria be broken.
“We advised those behind this propaganda to steer clear from distracting the man of God, who, at present is too busy with his spiritual and charity engagements to his God-given multitude of worshippers and his spiritual commitment for the good of the nation.”
