Impeachment: Call Mbaka Now, Reconcile With Him
A former federal lawmaker, Shehu Sani has told President Muhammadu Buhari how to address the issue between him and Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu State.
Recall that Rev. Mbaka had last week asked President Muhammadu Buhari to resign forthwith or be impeached by the House of representatives.
In response, the Presidency, through Garba Shehu, a Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, accused the revered priest of making the call now because he was refused a contract by Buhari.
Although Mbaka is yet to directly react to Shehu’s claims, some of his associates have berated the Presidency, asking it to respond to the issues raised by the cleric instead of making allegations that do not hold water.
But Shehu Sani, a former lawmaker from Kaduna central senatorial district, described father Mbaka as a patriot who deserves respect from the Presidency.
Shehu Sani did not also see anything wrong with giving the cleric a contract since the same contracts are being awarded to Chinese, Arabs, Jews and Europeans.
He warned the government against pushing individuals like Mbaka, who, according to him, believes in the unity of the country to the hands of secessionists.
In a tweet on Sunday, Sani said, “Father Mbaka is a patriot and deserves respect. The President should place a phone call and reconcile with him.
“People who believe in the unity of this country should not be disgracefully pushed to the hands of separatists. Even Chinese, Arabs, Jews and Europeans are given contracts.”
Mbaka, had among other things, hinged his call for the impeachment of Buhari on the high level of insecurity around the country.
